The most anxious morning on the Runner’s Calendar. I was up at 5:50am. Got a nice phone call from the missus. Showered, put a generous coating of Aquaphor on all my parts that might chafe, and taped up the teats. (You’d be amazed how much one’s nipples will bleed in a race if they are allowed to rub against one’s shirt.)
Just had a bowl of oatmeal and a half a cup of coffee.
Next, we go to the train and we’re off.
Wish me luck.
