This race is coming up faster than I realize. It’s been in the back of my mind for months, but now it’s staring me down. I’ve been struggling to put into words how I feel about the Rocky Raccoon 100 coming up so quickly.
I’ve slowly been starting a pile of stuff that I need to remember to take with me to the race. One of the things that I added was a gift that my friend Bill gave me after my first 100 miler. Bill is a veteran ultra runner, and an all-around great guy. He hand carved into this piece of stone a small runner figure, “100M”, and on the back it has the name of the race and the date. I plan on wearing it during this race as a reminder that I’ve covered the distance before, and that there’s no reason why I can’t do it again.
