I have been thinking about what my goal is/why I am trying to run this Ultra race. At first it was just a far away “hard” thing to do and a marathon on the road never had that much appeal to me. I absolutely loved the 5K gone bad races at crossfit and Spartan seemed to be closest to that.
Now, after training and reading a ton of books from marathon/ultra runners I think my goal has evolved to be trying to find my limit and to see if in adversity, I will continue vs. fold. Or if I fold, if I go back. Need to prove I am tough – even if I often cry on the side of the trail or before a workout late at night 🙂
Problem is what if there are no limits? Or is that the lesson?
