Well, we are one week away from the Keys 50 mile race. Here is my Update. In 2012 I attempted this run. I am sure that my attempt was premature and too soon in my recovery from traumatic brain injury. Still, I was training for a Leadville Trail 100 attempt and I thought I could do it. I could not. I quit at mile 23. I went out way to fast and broke down.
This attempt is similar; I am again training for Leadville. However, things are different. My running has improved and too, my knowledge of hydration and nutrition. I have also run as much as 38 miles in training. I will finish this time. The plan is to run conservatively, fuel from the beginning and to not be too proud to take walk breaks. It’s going to be hard, hot, humid and humbling. I can do this!
Mimi Reeves will be doing this as well. She is a smart cookie. I know she will rock it and finish!
