• Coming up in a little over 2 weeks.
  • Recovery has been OK since Blackspur 108km. Very low carb the week post Blackspur helped.
  • I've been wearing compression most days.
  • This is my A race for the year. I've had 2 great wins this year. I'm not going to win this but I want a good performance.
  • I need to finish! It's my WS100 qualifier.
  • Trying to maximize rest. Not always easy with a full time job!
  • Keeping the running workouts short - I'm not gonna get any fitter.
  • Power hiking - definitely great for active recovery between short-turnaround ultras.
  • Sleep - could be better - need more! HRV has been my friend. My HRV tightly correlates with sleep quality/quantity.
  • Race nutrition - dialed in. Vespa and Vitargo all the way. I'm new to Vitargo - thanks Peter Defty for the recommendation.
  • Weather could be an issue. It can be wet and will be cold at night.
  • Altitude - likely not a big issue given where I live, but it tops out at >10,000 feet.
  • This will be an all-nighter. Lighting will be important. I've always finished my hundreds in the dark.
  • No pacer's allowed - a first for me in a hundred miler. How will this be mentally? Running into daylight will be helpful.
  • Field - there is a stacked men's and women's field.
  • I'll run my own race and not get caught up with the hares!
  • Excited. Very.
