"The Road Goes On Forever and the Party Never Ends" (Pat Green). Sounds like fun - sounds like ultrarunning!
After moving to this barren, hotter than hell, full of deadly animals and plants (yes, there are "shooting cacti"), I thought my journey as an ultrarunner had ended at the finish line of the Keys 100 miler last year. That was until I came up with a brilliant plan to continue my quest to challenge my body and mind and use the gift of endurance God gave me for a good cause! I am going to run on the treadmill in the air conditioning for 24 hours and log as many miles as I can! Yippeee!! Life is good again.
But, again, it IS the dreadmill, er, the treadmill. When I tell you that I strongly dislike running on a treadmill, I mean it. I don't "hate" many things, but it is one step up from pure hatred. This will be the toughest mental running I have ever endured. I hate the treadmill, did I mention that?
So, I will keep you posted on the when-and-where on this blog and on Facebook. Until then, I will be accepting brainteasers, riddles, and audiobooks to keep my mind off the task at hand during the run.
