Mad Marsh 50k

I'm getting really excited for Saturday- I'll be pacing and crewing my good friend Kara as see runs her first 50k, Mad Marsh.  I ran the race last year, and like all Lowcountry Ultra events it promises to be a big party of most of my local ultra running friends!  I may actually run the entire 31.5 miles with Kara, and I'm looking forward to helping her reach her goal. She's been training really hard, and even delaying physical therapy for her I.T. band until after the race!  Kara's also been using Mad Marsh to raise money for the Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Foundation, which benefits children with a rare genetic disorder, and she is determined not to let those kids down!  Besides being super funny and a dedicated runner, Kara's got a great heart- I think we'll be having some fun times on Saturday morning!

And after all my whining this morning I managed to squeeze in a 3-mile treadmill "hill" workout between classes.  It's amazing how much better I feel after sweating it out.  Wore some old ratty workout clothes, but rocked my Altra Intuitions as always!
