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

My name is Phil and I live in southeastern PA.  I’m an early 50s guy who stumbled across running about ten years ago.  While training for my first half marathon, I heard about people who ran 100 mile races and was immediately intrigued.  I was like a moth attracted to flame and 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 to document my goal of finishing a hundred 100-mile races.  I’m now in year 8 of what will likely be a 30+ year project with twenty five 100 mile finishes under my belt.  Even after all these years, my running is still a work in progress, however hopefully you can take away something from my experiences. Enjoy.
