100 miles race

For those who are planning/thinking of participating in this race, just think once again if you have not been practising regularly for past one year. Few of runner friends had to say this:

“Seriously, man. It’s not worth it. You can cause yourself some serious damage doing that kind of distance. You should be a veteran marathoner (as in, >5 marathons) before you even think of doing that.”

If you have not done atleast 3 full marathons and feel like running the race get yourself checked with a doctor, practise for long hours to test the stamina.

Actually after my friends told me I have decided not to participate and look out for this next year. I have done only two full marathons till now and am not in top physical shape.

One thought on “100 miles race

  1. The SMART, SMART, SMART thing to do is to go to a 24 hour race at a site like a 1 mile loop or better yet a 400 meter track and then see how far you can go; hopefully 100 miles but you can get aid, rest and have all your needs met in the safety net of being 200 meters from your set-up.
