Western Freakin States Time

Every race and training run I have done since March has been in preparation for June 25th. I am now starting to taper (sort of) and hope that all will go as planned. It has been a long time coming getting into this race that really is not even a race I would normally choose. I hate downhill running. Don't do well in heat. Elevation is a killer for me. But......it's WESTERN STATES!!! Something about it. I am feeling ready. I have been doing Bikram Yoga to get used to the heat. I have raced marathons to 100k the past several months and even managed to pull off a couple wins. Now I just need to stay healthy and calm!
