Countdown to Pinhoti 100
5 days and counting to the Pinhoti 100 in Alabama: Weather prediction looks good (clear and Hi 60s / Lo 30s) - Crew ready - Pace chart prepared - Music loaded - Strategy formed (Go slow and eat lots of food). Now I need to get myself mentally prepared! Due to my training, no PR will be expected, and finishing will be my objective. I know after 70 miles will be a real struggle, but I need to embrace the challenge and push my limit. Something tells me this will be more demanding then VT. I will also be without a pacer, so digging deeper to motivate myself to keep moving will be required. As my friend Terri Hayes says "Just believe, and you will". Stay tuned.
