Desperately Seeking Pacers

Less than two weeks until my 100 mile attempt at Burning River. What I am asking you followers, readers and lurkers to do is run with me. I plan on writing your names on the back of my pacing cards for each leg (yes I am getting way OCD with charts and spreadsheets and I know everything will change after the first hour or so) so that you can "run" with me. My brother is going to be doing actual pacing for about 20 miles so that means I have another 80 miles to have you guys run with me. If you are planning on running or walking anywhere from 1 to 30 miles on July 31st or August 1st, please leave a comment with how much you are going to do that weekend and I'll be sure to take you with me. Just so you know, my 80 something parents are each going to do 2 miles.

I haven't been posting my training updates, but I did 75 miles two weeks ago, 68 miles last week, and 55 miles this week. This training included 92 miles on trails. Most of the time I feel like I've got this, but once in awhile I ask myself "what are you thinking?" The next two weeks will be tough because I am a lousy taperer, but I am going to force myself.

Thanks ahead of time for virtually running with me in two weeks!

I have 18-20 miles on the schedule for my long run; I will probably do 20 on saturday and a 5 mile recovery on sunday...I will be thinking of you and drawing inspiration during my run! Good luck and enjoy the rest of your taper!

I will pace you for 10 miles! I'm travelling for work and will be in San Francisco, so I will have a little adventure of my own as I find a route to occupy me in a strange town. Although nothing like what you are doing......

I am inspired by you!
