The plan – Run 20 Miles on the trails Saturday, Run Cox marathon on Sunday
If I succeed, I am ready for TARC 50 miler and I’ll keep my spot. If I want to die, I’ll switch to volunteering/eating instead.
Progress thus far
Best way to run a 20 miler? Almost break yourself around mile 10. I started to cry and turn to go home, then I realized that there is no way I am getting through 50 miles, if I give up and cry over one fall with 10 miles. Womaned myself up and got going! Saw a lot of really fast runners on the trail. I decided I will happily accept being the slowest as long as I can finish.
Step 2 – Providence Marathon – Goal is for a sub 4 but a finish will be good enough!
