Burning River 100m 2021

A reminder: You have been warned. (also be warned that this post is probably more full of typos and transposition errors than normal.

Off we go to Burning River

I have never felt so unready for a 100 mile race in my life. When I got to 45.5 miles on my pacing chart I realized I couldn’t fathom going further than that. The rest of the pace chart was truly an exercise in abstract thinking. I’ve never done a 100 miler so flat, so […] more
