My First 100 Completion Summary

Let me first say that the race was difficult, even with all the training. It was much harder than I anticipated. I figured since I had done the training, and did it to the "T", then the 100 miles wouldn't be that difficult, but was I ever wrong. I didn't really train for my first attempt, so I chalked up all the pain and agony I went through to my lack of training.

100 Mile... Ready or not, here I come!

I have my 2nd 100 mile attempt this Saturday. I failed my first attempt, only making it to mile 76. Two things are different now, than before. I now have Eric, and his training. I'm getting excited.



Eric, I hope I can do you and your training the proper justice it deserves by bringing home a finishers buckle. Thanks again for all you've done for me.



My marathon coach and friend, Shaughn, rented me a GPS device from, www.myathletegps.com, for me that I will be wearing, and… Continue
