The next full moon...
I was out running tonight as the clouds cleared to reveal a beautiful 17% of full, waxing crescent moon. It occurred to me that on the eve of the next full moon (December 13), I will run my 6th Hellgate 100K. The first Hellgate was under a full moon. There was snow on the ground that night, and there were many sections of the course that were so bright that we turned off our lights and ran under the light of the moon. I noticed this morning that there is snow in the mountains already this year.
Will there be more snow (or ice!) on the course in two weeks? Might be!
Will it be cold? Might be!
Will it be slick? Might be!
Am I staring to sound like Hellgate Race Director, David Horton? Might be!
Will I be ready? With less than two weeks to go, I don't have the answer for that one yet.
For those of you who are not familiar with this Hellgate of which I obsessively blog, check here to learn more.
Run hard out there...
