There were many reasons for me to visit southeastern Canada, including taking French classes, seeing where my father grew up, and visiting relatives I haven’t seen in 23 years. Here’s another reason: to attempt to run 100 miles, again!
My last attempt ended after 100 kilometers in the Boulder 100 last October. This time, I intend to go the full distance in the Sulphur Springs 100 in Ancaster, Ontario this Saturday, starting at 6:00am. In fact, there will be 47 of us attempting to do so. Here is the full race roster.
I am gladly accepting positive thoughts, well wishes, prayers, and luck; I think I’ll need them all. Although I intend to be a little smarter in this race than the last one.
