The Bartram is a short 5.25 mile loop which must be completed 19 times with a .25 mile of something else at the start. My current plan is to run the first loop just to see the lay of the land. If there are any hills that I would normally walk, great, and if not I intend on being disciplined and run 10 minutes and walk 2 starting lap 2. My goal as always, to finish (although a sub 24 would be nice:).
I will be heading down to Atlanta, GA next Friday with Tony Portera and several other running friends. Noticeably missing from my crew will be Tani. This is the toughest part for me as she has been at every race I have run. We thought this quick trip with the baby would be too much and although I know she will be with me in spirit, this, hopefully is the first and last race she will miss, right Babe?
I look forward to sharing the experience of another new adventure with you all when I am done.
