6 nice and easy on the trails. The weather is amazing right now in the morning. I am a little worried about how hot it will be in the afternoon during JJ though.

you still going my goodness. I'm trying to go back and check on your running I have being gone for a while from the blog.

From Burt on Tue, Oct 17, 2017 at 10:49:13 from

Yeah. It was a tad warm here at 8:30am. But I believe the Jundred is at a venue that's a little higher in elevation. So maybe you'll get lucky. Just stay hydrated.

Hi Yasir, good to hear from you.

Burt, are you a volunteer at JJ?

From Burt on Tue, Oct 17, 2017 at 13:30:39 from

I haven't committed yet. It seems our aid station is probably on the 100 mile course, so I wouldn't see you. And if I'm not going to see you, would it really be worth it?

From Rhett on Tue, Oct 17, 2017 at 15:08:50 from

They are both the same course. The 100K is 3 laps and the 100 mile is 5 laps.

From Burt on Tue, Oct 17, 2017 at 15:24:57 from

I see. The other problem is that our slotted time is from 1am to 10am. So you'll be done by then.

From Rhett on Tue, Oct 17, 2017 at 16:14:06 from

I sure better be!

From Dan on Tue, Oct 17, 2017 at 17:04:02 from

I saw the weather forecast. I know they can change either way quickly so I hope the afternoon stays down. You are ready for this.

Burt, you are a man of influence. Make it happen. Get Rhett some water.
