My first 100-mile ultramarathon was the Pinhoti 100 in Alabama back in 2013. A few months after completing that race, I picked up a custom branded belt from a local arts and crafts festival. The man who branded the belt asked what buckle I was putting on the belt. I explained that it was from running 100-miles through the backwoods of Alabama. His jaw dropped, and there was a long pause. The only thing he could think of to relate was that he rode 100-mile charity rides on his motorcycle. Yes, a relatable experience, I thought to myself. And that’s just it.
Completing a 100-mile ultramarathon training plan and 100-mile race is an experience that few people can even fathom. The journey to finishing a 100-mile foot race is life-changing, and I’m excited that you’re looking for the same adventure that I have sought many times now.
