Given that 101k is twice the distance of my longest race and nearly twice the distance of my longest run,
Given the universally agreed upon bad-ass-ness of the trail as described in the many trip reports by runners of the Flatrock 50k which took place this September,
Given the setbacks and disruptions to my training that will definitely occur, because shit happens,
Given the balance I have chosen between running and everything else, and my body's demonstrated intolerance for high-volume training when I try to alter that balance,
Given that--let's face it!--this race is going to be a meat grinder no matter how hard I train,
It is a fact that, on April 27th of next year, I will not be adequately prepared to run the Inaugural FlatRock 101k Ultra Trail Race.
I will need to find something other than adequate preparation to get me across the finish line.
What will I find? Ask me on April 28th!
