LOVE WHAT YOU DO...............
If you want to be successful, it’s just this simple: Know what you’re doing. Love what you’re doing. And believe in what you’re doing. O.A. Battista
Ok so I didn't reach my goal of over 100 miles But I ran 97 miles at the SF 1 Day and several hours later after a nap and taking care of some stuff, I took Rocky out on a 3 mile run/walk to make sure I completed 100 miles. It took me 33 hours but I can add another 100 miler to my books :-)
I did it for me and no one else. Running 24 hours of flat is harder then anything else I run all year. It is the challenge that keeps me coming back.
I had stomach problems and major sleep issues. My knee was bothering me. I was a lot slower then I had planned.
My BF Andy also didn't reach his goal of 115 miles he barely made 100 miles. The funnest part of the run was spending it with him. We ended up hooking up together after I reached 40 miles I think and stayed together all the way except when I ran off and was faster for a couple hours.
we enjoy suffer together it's fun.
Thanks to everyone who sent messages that really helped. And thanks to Ron for showing up with his Family and making that awesome sign. And thanks Ron for running some miles with me. We need to get together for a run at some point. You Rock :-)
I am feeling a little trashed today so I will rest and not do crossfit like I planned. I did take Rocky out but I ran for like 10 min. and had to walk the rest of the 25 min. we were out.
