The Zion 100 starts tomorrow morning. As if running 100 miles wasn't daunting enough, the forecast is 92 DEGREES for both Friday and Saturday! Wowzers. If that won't give you heat stroke, nothing will.
There is a high likelihood that I will come home from the race looking like this guy:
One last reminder, if you'd like to view live tracking of the race starting Friday morning, click here:
During a 36 hour run (in 92 DEGREE heat), there is plenty of time for some crazy, unpredictable stuff to happen. I'm excited to see what happens. I hope I see the finish line before that cutoff Saturday night. Note to self: pack some sunscreen.
Have a great race...yikes on the temperatures!ReplyDelete
haha! I'm going to guess your going to be REAL sick of gatorade after the race. Have fun and be safe out there.ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness- that's hot just for standing around... I can't even IMAGINE running in 92 degree heat. 100 miles! Have a great and safe run! Can't wait to read all about it.ReplyDelete
Good luck and stay hydrated!ReplyDelete
I just talked to a friend who was out marking the course yesterday and he said the lower areas got up to 104 DEGREES. On the bright side, 92 degrees will feel like a cold front.ReplyDelete
Please be extra careful out there Cory...we want you healthy, so have fun and challenge yourself. But don't kill yourself. Looking forward to your recap. :-)ReplyDelete
Wow, that will be interesting! You're a smart runner though and I'm sure you'll take good care of yourself out there! I bet you'll have some hallucination stories for us though on the flip side! Good luck!ReplyDelete
Good luck, Cory! I'll be tracking you to see how you're doing. I'll even remember you as I pray tomorrow. Blessings to you, buddy!ReplyDelete
Sunscreen and ice! Wow! 92 degrees is steep! You're running on your home turf though so I believe in you!! Godspeed!ReplyDelete
