50 Miles Today: Finished Strong

8:56 for today’s 50 miler. Almost 2 hours faster than my first one. I had a rough stretch and really wanted to quit at mile 35. And when I thought I couldn’t feel more miserable, it started to dump rain and lasted the rest of the race. Coke, PB&J, Oreos and Chips Ahoy brought me back to life and I had an awesome finish. So happy for how things turned around and put down a solid time.

    that rain was intense! the lightning strikes were a bit too close for comfort and i didn’t know until i finished that there were tornado warnings! i stuck around as long as i could after but must have missed you by minutes. congrats on an awesome finish and it was great to finally meet you!

    Congrats Bro!! Wow what an accomplishment, way to push through it. Sounds like your mental game is getting stronger, which is huge. I’ve never run more than 10 miles, but something tells me that running 50 (and eventually 100) miles is almost as much mental as it is physical. Great job man, keep up the training, it’s paying dividends!!
