Route 66 would mark my first marathon in almost two years, and the longest run since completing Yeti 100. After taking some time to recover, I designed a four-week workout plan to keep my legs moving and hopefully build some speed before I toed the start line. Since I started running ultras, speed work has taken a backburner – my focus was more on survival.
I arrived in Tulsa on Saturday at 10:30 am and hopped on the hotel shuttle for a quick ride to the Hyatt Hotel for check in. After dropping off my gear, I boarded the hotel shuttle for a ride to the Cox Business Center for the expo and packet pickup. My timing was perfect! The packet pickup booths were nearly empty as I walked up to the VIP check in. As a BibRave ambassador, I was given a free entry into The Mother Road VIP (more on this below).
