All of you math people get where I am going with this. I was pretty psyched to hit 80 miles in 3 days this week and then I read a comment that said it was great and I thought: is it? I mean I am excited about a distance that is insanely shorter than what I plan to do in just three weeks now. I want to run 100 miles all in one day. That is a ton more than 80 miles spread out over 3 days. I guess that doesn't make my accomplishment any less but lets just say it does give me a few prerace jitters. I know in my heart of hearts that I can do this, I can run 100 miles but, dang somehow it seems so much bigger than anything I have ever done before. Maybe that is attration. Doing something that is so much bigger than anything I have ever tried to do? Maybe it is for the runners high I will be on for like a week after? Maybe it is for the challenge? Maybe it is for the cool belt buckle (don't really think that is it)? Maybe it is just because I love to run? Anyway not sure but, sort of think it is funny in an not ha ha way that I was psyched to run a distance over 3 days that doesn't even equal the distance I want to run in 1 day. Now it is time for the tapering to begin.
