Today was hot no doubt, but it was a great day of running (ehh…more like hiking) in the Santa Ana Mountains.  Can’t really complain about being out there while Western States is going on! Started at Lazy W and made way back to Blue Jay (~8 miles from Lazy W to Main Divide plus a few more to get back to Blue Jay).  Wanted  to log more miles on this 8 mile stretch to compare my times and get a better feel for this portion of the race. There is really no way around it, it is very tough. I wasn’t sure if I had dead legs today or if I will feel the same way during this portion in the race come September. Either way, I am committed and I am not going into this race without being prepared; there is no worse feeling than being in a race that you are not totally prepared for — it WILL break you mentally and physically.
