I'm running the John Dick 50k this weekend. It currently looks like it'll be 'warm', which is a very relative term, considering it's about -15 right now, with 20 mph winds.
I'm looking forward to this run. It'll be an experience. When first signing up, I thought that I would probably only do 30 or 40k, then call it a day. However, the last two weeks have been decent. I've only missed one day in the last 20, and despite the weather, they've all been outside miles!
I plan to go very easy at the beginning, comfortably getting through the first 20k. I'd like to negative split the 21-40k section, when compared to the first 20k. Then, if needed, I'll death march to the finish.
As someone who tends to run in as little as possible--I don't even like carrying a bottle and prefer these--the equipment planning for this race will be interesting. I think there will be several clothing changes, and I'm not sure at all what I'll be doing for nutrition. Oh well, as I mentioned earlier, it's going to be an experience.
Some pictures from the previous week in running (37 miles total, plus 6 hours of basketball):

|I disturbed about 25 turkeys on my run...you can kind of seem them out there.|
|Goggle Running is awesome. So much better than sunglasses!|

|Woodpecker design or Human Being design? Either way, it's pretty cool.|
