Eve-ville 100 – The End

What looked on the radar like it would be an hour turned into over 3 hours.  But, the lightening did finally stop.  Sheila continued on loop 7 and Grady added.  It was sprinkling when we started.  You’d think I would have tried to get some rest during that unforeseen break and I did, but it was impossible.  I started coughing up all the trail dust and could not stop choking on it.  I was cold.  It...

Eve-ville 100 – Loops 5 and 6

Eve-ville 100 – The Final Training

I failed to mention the part about how I’d taken 10 days off of training (other than the 14er).  I called coach Steve panicking and not having the least bit of clue how to pick back up.  After 10 days off, I just picked right back up where I left off and followed the schedule he gave me.  This may only be the 2nd time in my life I’ve followed 100% what a coach said.  Except, I added one thing.  I...
