Gearing up

Just about ready to roll on this end. A few last minute things and we are off and running. I take off this Thursday, head to Phoenix first, then Anchorage. I am in Anchorage for two nights, then take a three-hour drive north to Talkeetna, meet the crew, and head out the next day for a flight to the base of the glacier. It's all happening, and it's hard to believe. I got in the fastest 2.5 miles I've ever run yesterday, now I am taking it easy and resting up for this beast. I'm going to need all of my reserves for this one! I will try to post when I can, but from what I understand I will most likely not get an opportunity from the mountain. That's okay, though, because the SPOT will be on and you can track our progress. Hopefully the weather will hold and we will bag a summit. Stay tuned...Mike
