I actually started to feel better-or not so sick-about noon today. What a relief.
I did skip my workout today, figuring I would be better for a 50K on two days of rest than one.
I screwed my shoes. I bought more sheet-metal screws, but they were round not hexagonal, so I just used the ones I had available. I am driving north to my parent's ( the rents) and will see if Dad has any 'proper' screws around. He's a dad, he has to have this in his workshop. If not, one of the prepared guys for the NEO Trails FA 50K will be able to help me out.
