New trail shoes and dreaming

WOW- just 5 days till the 50 mile Buffalo run. I am anxious and excited. I have been dreaming way to much about it. You know, the same old thing.... getting to the start line late, and getting lost on the trail. I am sleeping like a baby.... meaning not well at all. Hoping I can catch up on some zzzzzz's in the next couple of nights.


These pics are from our LBL trail run on Sat the 19th. We went and and ran the same course as the marathon.... (well half of the course) I got my new trail running shoes last week and I wanted to get them out on the trail for a test run. Plus I wanted to try out my new Nathan Hydration pack. Loved them both.

What do you dream of the week before a big race?

Potentially looking at my first 50 miler in 3 weeks, I am so eager to hear how yours goes. As for dreaming before my last race, I'm not sure I did. I was too tired to remember any at least.
I do try to avoid all the negative mind chatter that happens and remind myself that in an ultra; I am never alone, I am never lost and I am never lonely. I will reach that finish line when I am supposed to.
Run strong!

So excited to cheer you and Maria on and run the last 17 with you. How did the shoes compare to regular shoes on the trail? See you in 3 days wahoo!

I don't generally have specific race dreams, but I DO have restless sleeps leading to the race. Hope you can get in some quality ZZZs!

I dream that I'll run 8 minute miles instead of 9 and that my IT Band will disappear forever. :)

I have lots of dreams about being late and forgetting something. And I have just as many dreams when I am awake =)

Love the new shoes. LOVE all new shoes!

I love that you said "I slept like a baby...meaning not well at all!" After I had my baby I wondered why people would say "I slept like a baby" when they slept well, because my baby seemed to up all the time!

I just found your blog, good luck on your race!!

Have a great week!

good luck with the 50 miler! I'm sure you'll do awesome!

I usually have these weird race / maze dreams where I'm running forever or getting lost on the course.
