The High Line Canal 100k tomorrow

March 15, 2013

Well, this’ll be something different.  Tomorrow morning I’ll be joining a handful of hearty souls to run a route along the High Line Canal FatAss “100k”, a trip of 62 or 63 or 64 miles, depending on whose distance is used.  In any case, it is really long, really flat, and nearly all paved stretch through Denver.  It is a major departure from mountain trail running I’ve been doing and there’s no telling how my body will respond.  It’ll be only the second time I’ve run over 52 miles (the first being last October’s Cactus Rose 100-miler) but I don’t think I’ve ever run over marathon distance entirely on pavement.  Chances of falling are greatly reduced, chances of screaming knees are nearly 100%.  Aid stations are wherever we cross paths with convenience stores.
