Well, I'm still sick (a cold that caught up with me Monday night, apparently in response to the 50k?) and yet I'll be making the 2 hour drive at 6 in the morning tomorrow to Mt. Diablo to try my hand (or feet, as it were) at completing the Diablo Marathon course with Ernesto and one of his running friends. Now, Diablo still stands in my mind as the hardest thing I have ever attempted in my life, so I'm questioning my sanity a bit. It actually has more elevation in it than Dick Collins, which is almost twice as long! Still, Ernesto promises it to be awesome training, and part of me is really eager to revisit this course, and see if maybe it seems any easier this time around :)
After this, I am definitely going to be ready to taper!
