Running: Sat, 7 Jun 2014 17:46:59 – Manitou Pre-Race Run

A week after my fail attempt to finish Cayuga 50 miles and 2 weeks before Manitou, I really got a cold feet. With 14000 ft total gain in 54 miles (4000 more than Cayuga) and super technical, it would be my toughest race yet. The race director, Charlie, he was so nice that he was willing to take us to taste the last 16 miles of the race, and it was a night run. Which was make sense, because there would be a big chance that I would run this section after dark. Despite my hip flexor that just recover, I braced myself to drive up there and met up with a group of people, and doing an overnight run in Catskill. Even with my fresh legs, it was pretty tough gnarly run. Crossed my fingers that I would be ready physically and mentally.
