Yes, it's me, BUBBA is still in blog land. Life has been busy, with work, and most importantly with house duties around the house that has kept me from blog world for a week or two.
I have been getting a kick seeing my daughter running her own races and youth runs the past two weeks.
But have been feeling not myself lately not having a long-ass race to do each month.
But I think I have done it this time. Unprepared mentally and physically, I going to try to do this.
THE "MOHICAN 100 Mile Trail Run"
Honestly I have put up the white flag of sorts as a backup plan. Eventhou I signed up for the "Big Show", the 100 miler, I could drop down to the 50 miler and get credit and get a little "bling bling" if I just finish that much. But if I go one foot past 50 miles, I going for the 100 miler for sure.
So why do it? Mostly because I believe in "opportunities", you have to take the plunge sometimes and hope for the best.
So in less than 10 days, YES 10 days people, I'm going to try to run an Ultra in the middle of the summer for the 1st time.
Mosquito's, poison Ivy, my own allergies, and all those other warm blooded creatures that go bump in the night. Sometimes I wonder why I just sign up for things.
But I had to post this cartoon and quote from Rachel's blog. I guess this explains why most of all I have the urge to run for that long again.
And my 100 Mile race plan goes like this:
"If you can't run, then walk. And if you can't walk, then crawl. Do what you have to do. Just keep moving forward and never, ever give up."--Dean Karnazes Ultramarathon Man
Sound simple enough, RIGHT?
