"Able to function despite imminent catastrophe"
"To obtain the air that angels breathe you must come to Tahoe"--Mark Twain
"The most common question from potential entrants is 'I do not know if I can do this' to which I usually answer, 'that's the whole point'.--Paul Charteris, Tarawera Ultramarathon RD.

This trail system isn't as tough as the trails I've been training on but it's still a twisting, winding, technical single track. The course will be completely shaded but it's really tucked back into the woods and there's no breeze at all. Starting temp at 7AM was already 77 and humid as hell. So once again, it was a slug-fest. I think trail running is pretty cool unless:
1. you're not the first one to go through
2. it's not mid-summer in the South
3. the humidity is high.
2 more weeks til D-Day. Can I survive this thing?
MTA: 10.2 miles Sunday late afternoon. Amazing how much easier running is with low humidity.
