After successful completion of The North Face 50 Miler here in Washington, DC earlier this year I realized the pure resiliency of the human body. As a result, though my body was depleted, both mentally and physically, I wanted to see how much further I could go, so I signed up for the Indiana 100. Somewhat removed from Washington, DC but is familiar to me. I have family and friends that can quickly get to the course which would be nice as it is my first 100. Better to have more support and crew than necessary.
The race takes place at the end of April 2017 so that gives me about 4 months of training. I have just recently put my running shoes back on after taking a nice little hiatus after New York and it appears I still have a solid base. Over the next couple of months I will partake in cold weather trail training as well as strength training while tailoring my nutrition to be healthier.
Along the road I will periodically add blog posts, most likely every month, detailing my progress and how I am feeling. I learned alot from training for The North Face 50 and I will be taking my experiences and lessons learned to hopefully have an exceptional first 100.
