As the fifteenth of October comes to a close, this pedometer geek has completed the marathon having logged at least 26.2 miles; however, the ultra-marathon of 50 miles was the goal I set for myself. So there is some work to do in the next sixteen days to reach the 50 mile mark; however, I think it is doable.
Would I love to stretch the limits and achieve the ultra-ultra-marathon goal of 100 miles? Absolutely. Will I? Realistically, no. That won’t stop me from trying, however, and maybe getting close.
What I am most excited about is that fellow poet, writer, WordPress blogger, and friend, Jules Paige, has joined this challenge, too. She challenged herself to complete the marathon, and she has. Having completed the 26.2 miles, she is now working toward completing the ultra-marathon, too. I have no doubts she’ll surpass it easily, but cheer her on in her quest regardless.
JP, keep up the awesomeness…see you at the finish line.
