Back in 1999 I signed up for my first Ironman...I was fucking wigged out about it for a year. The fears that crept into my mind about finishing the damn thing were overwhelming...10 years later I didn't bat an eye signing up for IMUSA 2008...that made me stop and think about ever doing another one...that and a long laundry list of shit...but this weekend we sent in our entry fee to the Desert RATS race...148 mile stage run from Grand Junction Co to Moab UT...and there it was again the feeling of OH SHIT! Man it feels good. I am so looking forward to a little run in the desert.
Seems that gravity is letting me off the hook as the ankle is feeling better. I have yet to run on it but I haven't had any pain in quite awhile so I am going to do a few test miles here pretty quick. I just want to make sure it is 100% before I start the road to RATS
