100k – Am I crazy?

*This post has been written as part of the GoodLife blog ambassador program. All opinions expressed are my own.

OMG – I am totally considering running this distance in May! Yesterday Sulphur Springs announced that they will be doing a 100k distance this year and got a tiny bit excited! You see , I ran my first 50 miler on this course ( read the recap Here ) I’ve also done the 50k and I figure what’s another 20k right?

Thank god I have many months to train at GoodLife Fitness and I plan on doing many hill climbs and training runs.

Today I am getting faster 

It feels so good to run again and I can’t wait to get back out onto the trails and get muddy! I will be doing may hill climbs at 15% incline on the mill and running those hills on the trail. It feels so good to feel this good again!

Happy running!

So, You’re Running a 50 miler in 2 months

How’s that working out for ya??? 

Omg, I am running the Sulpher Springs 50 miler May 28 and I’m starting to freak the freak out! 

My winter training has been atrocious! I was in a boot/cast up until December, did 8 weeks of physio and have been baby stepping my way back. I think my longest run has been 10 miles! I’m so screwed! 

Plans for the next 2 months include hitting the trails Hard! I need to climb and descend like a boss and the trails are nice and muddy right now – perfect for playing and training. I again will not be using a training plan and have full intentions to just wing it. I know I am crazy but crazy gets me through it. 

This course is beautiful  

 and I look forward to spending 12 hrs admiring it( if I’m lucky) and can Finish in time. The goal is to just finish – cross that line , grab a medal and fall into bed with room service! 

I will not let my asshole foot get the best of me and I know that all those fellow runners out there will push me to get it done! The ultra community is a special breed! 

  
I GOT THIS!
