No Hands Bridge -- Mile 96.8 of the Western States 100 Mile Run
Today marked the end of my first 80 mile week for this year. A sweet milestone, yes, but also a reminder of the demanding road to come. From where I am today, all I can say as I look ahead to the next couple of months is bring it on!
It's taken a while, this build-up to my current level of endurance. Months in fact. I wouldn't do it any other way. Endurance is Patience Concentrated. When I read this quote by Thomas Carlyle (1795-1891), I surmised this man understood what I finally have begun to grasp. Give it the time, and the time will come.
The will to finish means nothing without the will to prepare.
