Fallsburg Marathon Update- My crazy-ass idea...

Tomorrow morning I will be running the Fallsburg Marathon in Lowell, MI. I had originally planned on running the Marquette 50 miler next weekend, but had to settle for the shorter, cheaper local race. While running a 10 1/2 mile run today, I decided to try running the course before the race. That will push my weekly miles to slightly above 90. This should be my most ambitious week. This is my plan:
  • Leave my house around 12:15 am
  • Arrive at the course around 12:45
  • Start running around 1:00
  • If all goes according to plan, I should finish around 6:30-7:00. That will give me some time before the actual race starts... just long enough to grab a quick in-car nap, down a few calories, and grab a quick change of clothes.
  • I'm hoping for a finish time under six hours in the actual race. That will probably make me one of the last finishers. :-)
I will be carrying my Vibrams on at least the first running. The course includes a gravel road; it may not be runnable. It would have been smart to assess the course prior to running, but I tend to do dumb stuff...
