100 Mile Mark!

A lot of people have sent me questions asking “what is it like...”. At near the end of day nine here is my take on the experience -

Go to the Y at 8 in the morning, get on the stair climber for 30 minutes then on the treadmill for 30 minutes and repeat for 9 hours. Take a 20 minute lunch outside sitting on a log or rock. Maybe some Romann noodles and a snickers bar. A few breaks through the day for water. If you have to go to the bathroom, go outside and find a concealed place in the bushes, dig a 4 inch cat hole and make your deposit, cover and head back to the stair climber.  After your 9 hours, put up a tent, cook some cuscus on a small stove and mix in a bag of tuna. Maybe dessert of some Swiss Miss and Pop tarts.  To bed by “hiker midnight” which is 9 pm. Get up and do over. Add a liberal sprinkling of incredible sunrises, sunsets, beautiful mountain views and great camaraderie!!!!!
