Do it. You'll be fine. I've found that jumping into up to 25k is no problem off of regular old training (which for me is 2 trail shuffles a week, plus a bunch of bike miles). Did one 50k on gravel roads, that was much more painful and I'd recommend …
@mbrekk44 did you poop in a toilet? pics or it didn't happen
@Evan if you must know, I'm waiting to get released from the hospital when I poop. I've been trying for 2 days. Milk of magnesia, prune juice, Mira lax, coffee, Senna, and 2 suppository …
So much overthinking and math. Just effing run.
N=1 and from a running background, so take this with a grain of salt. When I'm in sub-20 off the bike shape (it's been a while), my open half is usually in the 1:20s. You don't really need more volume…
@Dark_mark I knew eventually someone would figure it out.
But real chief complaints: "heat exhaustion, mowing lawn while on PCP." "Bitten on hand by boyfriend who was on PCP." "Fall from ladder, took PCP earlier."
Finish line photo credit @Dark_mark. He said inspiring and helpful things to me all day including:
"You look filthy."
"Get out of here."
"You were pissed off so we figured you were ok."
No but for real, having extra people around who were just su…

@simonsen77 @Adrienne Congrats on the finish and more importantly your killer sock game.
@Dark_mark As we took that picture, I said to @simonsen77 "Mark will approve of our socks." Priorities straight.
Also those pictures in no way do justice to th…
Olympic Ironman distance - crazy talk or maybe?
3 BPFs from @Martin @Adrienne and @idking90 - do you know something I don't, or think it shouldn't be an Olympic event, or it's just a ridiculous idea that will never happen ... ?
All of the above.
Did you contact Garmin about your 500 already? Usually if you're outside of warranty they'll send you a refurbished one for $50 or $80 if I'm remembering correctly. Did that when mine kicked the bucket (translation: smashed it when unpacking car) la…
The last 4 months or so of my trip down the scale, I restricted to 600-800 calories a day. My run paces got slower and slower and slower (and I wasn't fast to begin with). I was also an absolute delight to be around.
Holy mother of whatever you b…
