Pineland is in four days. FOUR DAYS!!!! I’m pretty excited, it should be a lot of fun. I still have not updated our packing list. I did share with another blogger that we had a list but I couldn’t really post what was on it because we haven’t been taking it seriously…so I figure what the hell.
The four of us (Pottymouth, Katie, TheBoss, and myself) share a google spreadsheet where we post upcoming races we might want to attend and we have a tab to track our packing list. Of course anyone can edit the list…
Mine started innocently enough…

I took out some of the more rude stuff out but you get the point. The weather for this weekend has taken a nose dive. It was showing 70 and sunny but now we are looking at 70% chance of showers and a high of 58. Hmm Sounds exactly like Vermont last year. So – I know for certain I’ll be running in the speedcross. Which to be honest I am fine with. I’ll probably also carry my pack so my running partners can stash a shirt if they need to. We’re are only doing 25K so I don’t think I’ll need much in the way of food. I am really hoping to get there early so I can see the 50K folks start but we’ll have to see what the group wants to do. It means a pretty early start. The most important thing will be a change of dry clothes for after ..and making sure they are warm!!!
My plans for Vermont this year changed..I may have mentioned that in another post but I am too lazy to check. I will be running the 50 miles – basically pacing off our relay team. This will allow me to finish the race pacing with Pottymouth. I figure by mile 32 I’ll look like a crazed homeless guy chasing after this poor foul-mouthed lady for 18 miles. Should be an epic finish. I have already started training her to motivate me. The last few times I mentioned I didn’t feel like running she had me crying and running in five minutes…she’s brutal..and mean. It also means my training starts this weekend so I’ll be running week 1 back to back longs. 9 miles on saturday and 16 on sunday. I have been doing 11 and 9 the past few weekends so this should be ok.
My wife continues to support this stupid endeavor and is enjoying the shit show. Plus, I bought her new running shoes…How cool am I?
Updates soon , I promise.
