5 More Days

Well, in only 5 more days, I'll be doing this:

And the problem with having told so many people about it is that it's kinda difficult to back out at this point.

I'm a little nervous about my training. I've hit all the long runs, but I haven't been terribly diligent about all the short runs. Do you think it'll matter? I'm also carrying about 10 more pounds than I was last year. THAT'S something on my agenda of things to figure out for next week.

I'm not guessing I'll beat my personal record from last year of 4:19. But I think I'll finish. And as they say in Evergreen:
Finishing is Winning
Or as they say in Boulder:
Everything is within walking distance if you have the time.
There they also say this:

'cause they're just like that in Boulder.
