One of the hardest things to do for me, and I imagine most athletes, is to rest. With the Sage Burner on Monday, these last few days have been rest days as we try and see what kind of shape we are in on such a short, accelerated schedule. Although we did a 2 hour hike yesterday, we have been trying to just "hang around", which is very difficult. Luckily, the smoke has blown in this morning from the fires in New Mexico, making me not want to really be outside and using my lungs. I sure hope it clears up a bit before Monday - and perhaps we will meet a few other folks at the race. Best of luck everyone!
