Umstead 100

100 miles. 48 Hours from now, I will be somewhere approaching 100K.

It's looking like the weather will be close to perfect, 63F and dry. I'll take that, but would probably prefer an another 10 degrees.

Tomorrow, I'll be packing before heading up to the park around lunch time, and I won't leave until it's all over.

I was remarkably calm till, oh, I dunno, about now. Nerves are kicking in big time. I'll try ice cream, perhaps a beer.

Aid station to aid station. Left right repeat. Beware the chair. Eat before you're hungry, drink before you're thirsty,walk before you're tired. Etc etc.

100 miles... it's a long way.

I'll see y'all on the other side.


  1. Good luck man! You've done this 100 mile thing before!!

  2. Good luck!! I hope I get your picture tomorrow. We are only doing the 50. My hat goes off to you!! The weather is on your side.
