I Am Off

If you are reading this, then I should be off and running at the Leatherwood Ultramarathon 50K trail race. And for this race, running is a relative term. With the amount of climbing in this race (9684 feet over 31 miles), the ratio of running to walking/crawling/slithering will be lower than for a typical race. But that is fine. I will do whatever it takes.

My plan is to…….. well, I don’t really have a plan. Except to finish.

Like the ghost of Christmas Past/Present/Future, you will be visited by the ghost of Timbeaux every hour that I am out there (almost).  I have set up this blog to automatically post some timely information during the race today. But just so you know, these posts were written before I actually started. This is not real time blogging! I don’t think I would have the energy or the laptop to accomplish that feat.

So what can you do?

  1. Pray. I will definitely need some help.
  2. Walk outside. Face the direction I am in. Yell “Geaux Timbeaux!!!”
  3. Visit my donation site and donate to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.
  4. Pray some more.
  5. Then Jump Around!


Other than that…….it’s time to bring on the pain!
