OK...100 km is a long, long way

The day after the PCT 50km, Trisha and I ran the last section of the top of the PCT 50 miler.

With the kids up playing with Grandma in Canada, we elected to stay up a second night. Nice little forest service Clackamas Lake campground in #4. We think that #30 is likely the best in the site.

This is a 5.9 mile out and back from Barlow Pass up to Timberline Lodge.
Climb most of the way up, great cruising on the way down.
Working through the sand for the last 3/4 mile or so has really made me not likely to consider doing the 50 miler any time soon :-)

The run was amazing and Trisha really made me work in the last few miles but what kept going through my head is that in 3 weeks

I plan to run 100 km (62 miles) in under 16 hours at Waldo.

Doing 31 miles one day and the 11 miles the next day seemed tough enough.

Little bit scared...

Are you REALLY going for Waldo? And you complain to keep the PCT 50k??

In a moment of weakness Dave and Caroline talked me into signing up :-)
