I have been off the radar for almost a week after finishing the GVRAT race. It is still on going but I haven’t put much effort into it. The initial goal of running 1000k is done. I could go for the 2000k or even 3000k. Any way.
Last few days have been a low point for me. When I run, I feel high, even when a run is very difficult and I would ask why am I doing this. But when I don’t run, it feels even worse.
I haven’t done much in my personal life or running. Everything seems come to a halt.
I am procastinating. Next week, July 4th weekend I will be heading to Atlanta to do my first 100 miler. It is a virtual race so I will be myself, but I will be running a actual mapped out course. Running aspect is tough. It is an endurance race. On top, it is the logistics, where to get food/drinks/bathroom. Since it is a self supported, I will carry most of stuff on me. There won’t be any place for me to swap out clothes or gear. Yup, lot of stuffs: flash light (s), phone, blinkers, safety reflector vest, socks, batteries, gps, watch, chargers, map, and turn-sheet. Navigation too will be tough, because I am poor at it. Then the stamina to stay awake and keep running. I am scared about the whole thing, so I have been hidding myself.
Instead, I have burried myself in a chinese web novel (translated of course, since I can’t read chinese). I am reading Reverend Insanity. It is quite good apparently, but the ideology behind it is kind of mess up, but still it makes you want to root for the bad guy, like Death Note. It is definitely a Rated R novel, for death, violence and gore.

Haha well that gps would suck 😮
And I suppose there are areas of no service which would effect that too… I didn’t think of that. 😮
Hope you are doing ok today 😊
yes, I will have gps…but I had bad luck with it the last two times I used it. It is a very slow unit. It doesn’t tell me where I am at or where I am heading. It only shows where I was.

I have been wondering about you!! Glad you came out of hiding … that’s ok … I also am same way ✌️
I would not like having to lug everything with me … that extra weight must make little more difficult too?
And with the directions – are you allowed to use GPS ?
Just try your best, that’s what I’m going to do. Why be scared? Here you are – you have been in training all through corona …
You do your best and be proud of what you are able to do… you may surprise yourself
Anyway … easier said than done – I know … also pep talking myself lol ✌️
I have been busy too, but miss seeing you post 😘
