I rarely sleep well the night before an event.
My friend Luke and I are running in an adventure race tomorrow, and I'm way too wired to sleep. I've run the City to Surf (14k) on about 3 hours of broken sleep and I tend to be fine - the adrenalin and fun of it pulls you through on the day.
The race will consist of running, mountain biking and kayaking... and a lot of running round with a map looking for flags. It was an incredible amount of fun last year, so I can't imagine it'll be any different this year. Difference will be that it won't be my local area which I'm somewhat familiar with - it'll be out in an entirely new spot. Eeee!
So. Got just about all my stuff sorted for tomorrow. Only thing now is to wait til I fall asleep.
Had a great evening in tonight: Don't worry, it's light champers! After my shenanigans of the Canberra Times 10k, I've vowed never to run an event hung over again. Ugh.
