Ah, Iceland. Doesn't it look exciting?
I'm all signed up for the Laugavegur Ultra Marathon on July 12th. Plane tickets purchased, vacation days requested, obsessive compulsive trip planning at full throttle. It should be a great trip. Jeanie can't go because of her studies, but I recruited my sister, Megan, to join me. She's a sucker for going anywhere that requires a passport.
My favorite description about the course from the website is "Take extra care when going through areas of geothermal activity." Sounds like fun.
I haven't run a lick since the Rocky Raccoon 50. I'm taking at least two full weeks off to get my knee rested, but I'm thinking about taking the entire month of February. I'm learning to be a bit more patient. Yes, it's driving me a bit crazy, but I should be nice and rested for my summer races. I better be, at least.
PS. I lied. I've actually done a little bit of running. But I'm trying to tell myself that I'm not just to make-believe that I'm fully resting. Hee hee.
