Looking for Mojo!


Help! It is two days until the Black Warrior 50K and I am sick for the first time in over a year. It started Monday with a very slight dry cough and by yesterday evening I was burning up and achy all over. I had to go into work today which I knew would be bad for me but I didn’t have any choice. I spent the day alternatively hot and cold and just felt like crap. Fortunately I can take off tomorrow so will stay in bed for the most part but then it’s travel all day Friday and race on Saturday.

Skipping this one is not much of an option as I am into it for three plane tickets to Birmingham, car rental, hotel and race entry fees for me and the GG. The kid is also running sweep for the 25K.

This sucks, this was an A race for me and now it is in question as to whether it will be decent or a slog to the finish…50K is a long way to slog.

If anyone out there can spare some Mojo I sure could use some extra!

  5. Wow, I've had "the flu" this week, but all I've missed out on is some training. I'll hang onto it for a couple of days more so that you don't have to deal with it.

    Have a great race!

  8. Great cartoon, something I need right now as well.. But you can have my MOJO since I can't use it right now.

    After awhile, when you start doing 50 and 100 milers, 50k will feel like a warm up..

    Hang in there, just don't kill yourself on the 50k if you are not 100%.. Take lots of drugs, they don't drug test at ULTRA's :)

  9. Oh, I really hope you get better!!! I was sick a few weeks ago (haven't been sick in forever, too) and I know how miserable it is when you want to be well for a race.

    You've been working so hard and are in great shape, so I bet you'll get well fast :)
