My name is Phil. I’m a mid-40s guy who stumbled across running about five years ago. While training for my first half marathon, I heard about people who ran 100 mile races and was immediately intrigued. It was like a car accident I couldn’t look away from and I became obsessed with reading as many race reports as I could find. After several years of training and steadily moving up in distances, I finally finished my first 100 in 2015. This blog is my attempt to document my goal of finishing a hundred 100-mile races. I’m only in year 3 of what will likely be a 30 year project so don’t consider me an expert on ultras. My running is still definitely a work in progress, however hopefully you can take away something from my experiences. Enjoy.
