Panic mode?

Maybe.  Yes... I am starting to get nervous.  The Tough Mudder is this Sunday @Pocono Manor where it will be COLD.  I think that is the one thing that worries me the most, for the past few weeks I have been obsessed with the weather.  It has ranged from 65 to 45 and as of right now it is looking like a sunny (but yet chilly) 50 high.  Of course at 9:40am it will not be 50!!

Will the running through fire warm me up?? I doubt it and it is pretty far into the race.  Slightly concerned with my lungs going through here!

I have my death waiver all printed and signed.  Bring it... :-)

Stupid or dedicated?!

I just came in from a 2.5 mile run in the cold rain... My legs are still numb (you can see how red the are in the pic). The hot shower I took still hasn't warmed me. This feels AMAZING!!!

The Tough Mudder is in 1 week... Yes, 1 short week and I have started I panic that I am not ready. I've been training in my Vibram FiveFingers KomodoSports for the past 4 months and this week I got scared about my toes. :-) so, in my true nature I decided to buy a pair of New Balance Minimus Friday night. Thinking there is a little more traction and less of a chance of breaking a toe or 10.

They rub the back of my heel pretty on my left foot but other than that they are perfect. Now I just need to buy some Under Armour Cold Gear pants this week and I will be all set.
