How To Approach an Ultra or Ironman

Jordan Rapp quote sums it up!

This Jordan Rapp quote sums it up.
"It's about the process. It doesn't matter what you do tomorrow and it doesn't matter what you did yesterday. It's about today, and making today count. That's especially true in training, but it's the same mentality that I carry into racing. Focus on the task at hand, not on the finish line, or the next part of the race, but what it is that is right there in front of you in the moment."

The Race-Day One *22 Miles on Lookout Mountain

So Friday came quickly, up at 6:00a.m. Made it to the start with plenty of time to spare. We chatted with some local runners, they are so nice as well as polite!As we spend more time here, we think they are sincere and are not faking it. Above, Captain and Cyrus plan our route to the start.Cyrus and Dora wait for the starting Gun.

Digger and Dora.

A rope climb up one of the hills at about the 2 mile mark, then we had to climb down it at 20 miles.

We ran above the clouds, I had to get this shot.I had missed a similar shot at Bel Monte in Virginia, where it was the only time we saw the sun.

Captain bringing it home!

Don't forget to stop your watch!

Hooray American Old Milwaukee!

We were drenched after the race,my shoes were full of sweat, like I had been wading in a creek. Luckily, after we washed everything, it only took an hour or so for them to dry. Man it's hot here.
So Cyrus gets to wear the coveted orange leader's jersey for tomorrow's stage 2.
