Well here we are. Only 6 days until my 50 in good ol' Albion Indiana for the Indiana 100. Although I am only doing half of the event, I am glad I am venturing outside DC. My family is coming out to help crew for me and frankly, it is a good excuse to go camping!
I haven't been too active with these posts lately but I will summarize the past couple of months: eating, lifting, road running, and not nearly as much trail training as I hoped. The weather has cleared up and with spring here, it has drastically altered my outlook on training.
Last week, I was feeling a bit anxious about the run since my training has not been 100% but I have realized a few things recently:
I by no means am going to place 1st in the event, but I am really going to enjoy the run. Heck, it's an adventure and the only one stopping me is myself. It's the mental game that I most look forward to. How will I overcome the distance, the pressure of the environment, and the effects of prolonged exhaustion. This is where it is at.
I will take some pictures, maybe a video or two of the race and post them here in the coming weeks. If you are curious, you can track me HERE. I also can't wait to try out these awesome Salomon trail shoes, love the neon yellow!
