|i'll be running the 2016 version, btw...|
"practice, practice, practice."
words i never imagined i'd type:
"i signed up for a 100k."
i mean, it hasn't been that long ago that i said, "i still don't like running. but i've been hating it less recently..."
it was even less long ago that i ran my first half marathon, and cried at the end of it.
it was just two years ago that i ran my first marathon, something i really believed i'd never do.
so how did i get from being a run-hater to a running fool to 22 weeks away from attempting a 100k with 12,000 feet of elevation?
like so many things in this life: i have no idea.
but with a handful of marathons and 50k finishes now in my repertoire, here's what i do know: any 100k is going to be hard. this one, in particular, is going to be rillyrilly hard. but, you know, one step at a time.
having spent the money on registration (and the custom t-shirt and the pint glass), i figure i'm all-in. and while i won't be fast, i am willing to try rillyrilly hardTM.
|a sign very much like this one... #gw100k|
we try to avoid the tragic results whenever possible...
