Twelve hours is a long time to run, especially in circles. That said, Chris and Tom, the Watershed Preserve 12 Hour Run organizers, make it so much fun. The run was yesterday, and I am tired today. I kept it busy for the full time, finishing with 57 miles. I'll take it. I was pretty lame for the last hour, but that's ok. It's good prep with good peeps. Organization and volunteers were top of the charts. In particular, the food was phenomenal. Food matters. There were all sorts of Hammer energy fuels, which I've taken to, but then there was this big buffet you'd pop out at every 5 miles. Here's the full menu:
chicken flavored vegetable soup
energy bars (cut up)
peanut butter & jelly tortillas
salt (for potatoes)
tortillas (for wraps)
