Finishing the Race

© 2016, Bill Edgar

One hundred and thirty five miles.

Thats a really long way. And thats the best way I can describe it without using expletives.

But I did it. With all sorts of help, with decimated legs, with about half of a functioning brain, with no time to spare, through the grace of God.

This race is a game changer for me. Not only is it a big step up in distance, but it was a true odyssey. I learned so much about myself that I can apply both in ultras and elsewhere. But lets rub all that glow off for a second and just acknowledge that it was also three dozen hours of absolute torture.

I hate the grind. I love the grind.
