We were talking about my weekend adventure of running my first 100K.
I was telling Bruce how I had learned a few things about myself in the last few months. At the AT100 aid station I learned I didn't have the mental fortitude to go back out in the cold, wind, miserable, rain as did the runners of that race.
This last weekend I learned that I wouldn't have gone on for 38 more miles.
Bruce grinned at me and reminded me that I felt the same way after my first 50K. I was just as scared and overwhelmed, but just kept running. In a few more years I would be ready for it.
Thank you dear brother! I completely needed you to put it into context for me.

Happy riding! running and just being :)
