On March 26th, 2014, I signed up for a 55 Hour Race. Back up a little. On November 4, 2014, I regained the use of my left foot after surgery. In March, while I was doing well with rehabilitation, I was still fiddling with insoles every time I put on shoes. What made me think I could walk 100 miles?
Even with good feet, 100 miles is difficult.
Now, my feet feel good. Tomorrow I toe the line. Some of my stuff is already at the race site. More of it goes in the car in the morning. An hour drive to the race.
In 2 weeks, I'll be 56. I finished menopause this year; and it left me with a different body. 10 days ago, I came down with bronchitis. But that is gone now. I feel good.
It will be cold and wet. But 50+ other people will be trudging around the course with me.
I've not yet succeeded with 100 miles in one race.
I better go upstairs and finish packing.
