In my mind, the best way to train for the H.U.R.T. 100 is to get out on the course and put in the miles. Of course, living here in Hawaii makes that easy, the course is 20 minutes from my house.
This past Saturday I ran two loops or 40 miles. It wasn't fast (or at least I am not fast) as the course was very wet and muddy, however the sun was out and as Ed says, "it's all good training." I needed to put in the miles and 12 hours later I felt good about what I had done!
Though I had company on the first loop, (Carl, a new Hawaii resident--thanks to the USAF and Marion for one of the legs), I was pretty much on my own for loop two. Three other runners were out on the course and also got 40 miles in (Ed, Gordon, and Marion), and it was nice to see them at various times throughout the day.
