The Final Countdown

It’s here. The clock is ticking faster. The train is barreling down the tracks. The end is near. On Saturday morning at 6:00 AM, I will head out into the woods with 399 other runners for the start of the Rocky Raccoon 100 mile trail run.

I’m not going to get into my current emotional or physical state before the race because it changes minute by minute.  This post is just to relay a few details for those who will be attempting to keep up with my status.

If during the race, you feel motivated by my apparent loss of rational thought, please make a donation to Habitat for Hope on this page.

Besides myself, Christine, Susan, Kristin, Kristen, Marci & Paul will also be there.  Our plan is to tweet status updates during the day and night as to my whereabouts and/or deteriorating condition.  If you do not follow me on twitter, here is my twitter address.  Timbeaux

I will also have these tweets showing up on this blog.  Click the “Race Tracking” tab above for that page.  My twitter account is linked to my Facebook page as well.

I am not sure how often it will be updated, but there is a live tracking website for the race. I will be BIB # 20.  The regular page is here ==> HERE.   The page for mobile phones is here ==> HERE.

During the race, I will have my phone on me the entire time, but I will not be doing conference calls or phone sex.  It will be mainly for telling my crew where I am and what I need (like dry clothes, shot of adrenaline, new legs).

If you would like to leave a comment or offer words support, please do.  You can leave them below, on Twitter, Facebook, etc.  I will be looking at them when I am done.  And please start saying some prayers!

Other than that, have a nice day!
