100 Reasons to Taper

A week from Saturday at 6:00 am I'll depart on my second attempt at a successful 100-mile ultra-marathon run finish. The race is called "Heartland: Spirit of the Prarie". The race starts near Cassody in the Flint Hills of Kansas.

Here is a link to an inspiring promotional video all about the race:

Thankfully, Allen Smelser will be meeting me with fresh legs to pace me for the second half of the race and all throughout the night.

I guess I have at least 100 reasons to take it easy, rest, and taper for the next week! I am very pumped!
