Wrapped up the Cougar Mountain series over the weekend with a pretty challenging 14.47 mile course through the Cougar Mountain Wildland Park. I'm pretty sure the person who designed the course is a sadist.
Times for the series:
#1 5 Miles 52:50
#2 8 Miles 1:30:34
#3 10 Miles 2:05:46
#4 14 Miles 2:59:01
Tomorrow's the big day. My original goad was 2 hours. Then I thought 2:10 might be a little more realistic. Now I'm shooting for "don't die." Hopefully I'll see some of you on the course. If you're not running there is a big party after the race a Qwest Field. So long as I'm not dead I'll be in the beer garden by 9.
Running when you want to is difficult. Running when you don't want to is nearly impossible. I didn't want to run today, but I got it done with a little help from Fear Factory. Put this song in your Ipod and throw it on if you ever need a kick in the ass.
