I finished my first 100 miler a few days ago, Burning River 100 in Ohio. Apart for some tough (stomach) moments it went well and I was able to finish strong.

I used both "Level 1" and "Level 2" of the B2R Strength Training program, and I think it helped a lot. I did not feel any weakness in my back, hips, or glutes during the race (even late in the race), though my legs were certainly sore and tired (mostly my quads).

Full race report:


Thanks, Eric, for a great program.
