Standing at the starting line of my first 100-mile finish at Oil Creek in 2015.

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.
