I signed up for a 100 mile race in March, part of the NJ Ultra Festival. This will be the first 100 mile race I have ever done. The Native American spiritual journey I have attended the past two summers- the Katahdin 100 - is indeed 100 miles long but not a race. I hope I can finish the race. Wish me luck! And I'd appreciate a comment or two in the weeks to come to kick my butt into high gear, bear the cold weather, and train!
