Thanks for sharing. Sounds like great preparation and I look forward to seeing you do it for real! :)
Yep, those are some big recognizable names! And they’re probably pretty down-to-earth and approachable. Trail runnning is great that way.
Cool that you saved the track for the big day; that will be pretty special. Great that you got to see so much of the course, to help prepare.
Excellent prep! Some big miles in exactly the right terrain and weather.
I'm really excited for you that you got to go and do this! Can't wait to watch you crush it for reals in a few weeks!
How great is that? To get to go practise the course! Lucky for you , you can continue training in the heat when you get home.
