Sweetwater 50k Tomorrow!

I'm definitely excited about the SweetH20 50k tomorrow.   It's going to be a different experience for me since I haven't been training specifically for this race.  For every marathon or beyond, I've always gone through a training cycle for the race.  For this one, however, I'll be relying on my build up for the Mt Cheaha 50k in late February and then the Publix half in March.  So I haven't done any long runs in a while.  But I'm excited because Sweetwater Creek SP is such a great place to run.  It's also pretty much a home course for me since it is about 25 minutes from my house.  There is a big storm brewing tonight so the water should be up and the "creek" (river, actually) crossings should be fun.   Plus there are a couple of festivals going on in the ATL this weekend (420Fest and Dogwood) so there will be some good celebration venues for afterwards. 

It could be rough but I'll be shooting for a good time, so to speak.  Stay tuned!
