I haven’t raced in more than there months and only once in almost half a year. Tomorrow morning I’ll once again pin a number on and toe the line for the Odyssey 40 miler. I have no intention of racing it, but looking forward to returning to the race scene. I want to be comfortable when I start racing for real come hte end of next March. This is just a pre-season inter-squad scrimmage… it’s not just physical training (my primary purpose or running Odyssey tomorrow), but also an opportunity to learn something.
