Hubby has run three 50-milers and 21 marathons. When he first got it in his head to try for 100 miles, I do not exactly know. But he did get it in his head, and he has worked hard for this. I can't accompany him on this journey; it's one that he'll have to take on his own - with the help of a friend to pace him in the last 38 miles.
How will he do? No clue. Since those first few early races, he has come a long way. I know he'll give it his all, and whether in the end it turns out to be good, bad, or ugly, I think it is amazing that he is doing it.

EPIC. My thoughts will be with Distance Dude this weekend as he sets out to make it real! Congrats!ReplyDelete
Wow...100 miler? Very impressive! My thoughts are with him for a safe and worthwhile run!ReplyDelete
Go, Distance Dude! That will probably feel so amazing at the finish. And I'm impressed he has a friend who can pace him for 38 miles! And he must go through a ton of shoes.ReplyDelete
41 down and a bunch to go... Go get 'em D.D.!ReplyDelete
