100-miles in ONE DAY, the APPLICATION...
Holy smokes, a DREAM (that could become a nightmare?) is becoming more and more REAL by the day...
I went for a 5-mile run this morning with a client, and I started to THINK about it... I have to run 20-times that distance on Sept. 16th & 17th.
Over "mountainous terrian". From Wrightwood to Pasadena over the San Gabriel Mountains. I get tired DRIVING that distance. WTF am I thinking? ROFL
I am examining the WAIVER I have signed and am about to mail in REQUESTING they admit me into their race, it mentions: extremely difficult and hazardous conditions including snow, lack of water, communicable diseases, wildlife, vehicular traffic?, incapacitation, death, AND even "Acts of God" (the application mentions this TWICE!).
Back to LAST September: after getting lost with about 10-miles to go in my 53.2 miler (that became a 54-miler), the photo (to the RIGHT) of me having a serious conversation with my water bottles (around MILE 41) asking them if I should throw up or not sort of sums up the insanity of these ultra-marathon events (and it's participants)... CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TALK SOME SENSE INTO ME?!?!? PLEASE!?!?!
I'm mailing in this badboy tomorrow. I am nuckin futs. :)
