Despite my whining and pouting and "poor me" attitude, I'm sucking it up and heading for the Cumberland Trail 50K.
Will camp in my CR-V (now with bench seat removed to accommodate sleeping) at Cove Lake State Park tonight, then hit the trail with headlamp tomorrow morning.
This race is not for the timid. This is where the big boys and girls will play.
Have to see if old master man survives. I may run off the back with co-promoter Rob Apple; Rob pulls down the marking ribbons on the return leg and I may help with that task.
I'm one lucky gimp to be making it to this race. Excellent friends, excellent terrain, good ultra environment.
