Why I am excited to run a 100 miler

As the thought of covering (mainly running but I know I will be walking a lot) a 100 miles gets tossed around my tiny little head, I have started to look at the benefits of it. Here is my top 5.

1. I have a perfectly good reason to run a lot more.

2. I get to do a lot of LSD. Long Slow Distance.

3. Less speedwork, more hills.

4. I have to learn to run at night. Early morning running is one thing after sleep, but doing a run after a day of work and play should be interesting.

5. Learning how to eat more on long runs than just gels. Potatoes, soup, pizza? Anyone know of a pizza joint in metro detroit that will deliver on the run?

sometimes I think. "100 miles would be a great race, I could do that." Then I begin to think about what it would take, and I laugh at myself for even thinking of it.

This is my first time checking out your blog, and its great. But I don't believe you didn't bribe your children. :)
