I have been running every day now for over 2.5 months. I have averaged over 14 kilometres on each of those days. By the end of this week I will surpass 3,000 kilometres since the beginning of the year.
Through it all I have worked on both speed and endurance. I have taken on a team of people to get me to the shape I am in. I have pushed my limits beyond what I thought possible.
My mind and body have been transformed.
I am ready.
What I hope to achieve is excruciatingly tough and can be quite dangerous. But I have prepared for the contingencies. Others have done what I endeavour to accomplish. Reminding me that what I seek is doable albeit extremely harrowing.
I’m hoping to be done in under 3.5 hours. It could take longer. It could take all day if things go wrong. I may even DNF. But let’s not put that out there.
I’ll do my best.
My Yankees baseball cap and my favourite hoody have went missing within the depths of my overly-cluttered closet.
If you haven’t heard from me in a few days, send help.
This is what I trained for.
