Still so so SO busy over here getting the last details worked out for my first 100 mile run.
Finished the pace chart
Created the crew T-shirt Logo
Went for a longish run/hike to see how the trails held up in the recent rain. While desperately trying to go slow enough since I am tapering. Now is NOT the time to blow all my training.
I’m trying to organize my food and nutrition into some sort of order. Here’s what’s on the menu (both food my crew will have available for me and my trail food).
- Moon pies
- Hammer caps
- Hammer perpetuem
- Pay days, nut rolls
- Filled clif bars
- Lara bars
- Apple sauce
- Clif Bar sweet potato pouches
- Clif Bar Mango banana coconut pouches
- Crystalized ginger
- Skippy Peanut butter bites
- Honey and chocolate peanut butter packets
- Chocolate Milk
- Ritz Bits with CHEEZE
- Those tiny chocolate chip chewy granola bars
I decided a couple months ago that calorie restriction in any form and training/running 100 miles was not compatible.
Lastly I’ve composed my DNF list. Here are the only reasons to DNF
- Broken bones other than fingers, toes, and noses.
- Missing an aid station cut off
My race strategy?
Go slow and keep it simple. Don’t be an idiot in the first half and don’t be a wimp in the second.

Good luck!!! I’m always super interested in ultra runner’s nutrition. Our one ultra friend eats a Chipotle burrito at every 100 he does. Another downs a large pizza throughout. Others subsist on gu and trailwind only. I find it fascinating.
I did my first 50 on Taqueria burritos. It was awesome! Oh and a medium pepperoni pizza at mile 45 LOL.
Guess I should add that the logo, pace chart, and food list are not final yet!
The hubby learned the hard way that subsisting on Pepsi and all the candy one can eat isnt the best strategy. Will there be support during the run?
Do you mean aid stations and crew? If so, yes. Also there will be hot “real” food at the later aid stations which I’m looking forward to. I’m one of those people who can’t do mileage on just carbs and sugar – I have to have real food to settle my stomach. I’m carrying and bringing a lot with me (uncrustables etc.)but I’m looking forward to soup and quesadillas!
Good luck! Your plans and food look good. I think the rain will keep dust down, but it’s all soaking in. As an FYI: meat grinder section is really poison oak overgrown, so hopefully wipe down after that section!!! (Learned the hard way last week…)
I’m 99 percent sure that I’m wearing tights so that should help. I keep technu in my bento box (and crew bag) so I’ll add handing that to me to wipe down to the crew list!
