No Rhyme Nor Reason

I find boring repetition a means of preparing myself for long run such as 100 milers.
So this week my goal is to run a 10 mile run every day until Sunday. On Sunday I will run a 25 miler. I don't know why but these kind of runs play with the mind and that is exactly what a 100 miler does. So it works for me. Let the fun begin.
Sunday 10 miles on Kokosing Gap Trail and today 10 miles in Mohican mostly trail.

Race plans:
5/24 Pineland 50 mile, Maine
5/30 No Frills Just Hills 6 hr., CVNP, OH
6/13 Sandhills Marathon, NE
6/20 Mohican Trail 100, OH
9/24 Clarence Demar Marathon, NH
11/16 Warwick 6 hr., RI

Rob and Mark,
Thanks for the comments. I really feel bad that I have not kept my blog up to date. Time is slipping by so fast. I will try and post something in the next two days.
Mark, no problem with linking me to your blog. Glad you are in the game. I am sure you will do a better job at posting than me.
