"Able to function despite imminent catastrophe"
"To obtain the air that angels breathe you must come to Tahoe"--Mark Twain
"The most common question from potential entrants is 'I do not know if I can do this' to which I usually answer, 'that's the whole point'.--Paul Charteris, Tarawera Ultramarathon RD.

The Logic of Long Distance
A Dance with Monkeys
Run a lot.
Spend enough time in PWP so that you know where the hills are, how long they are, and how stupid your decision was to sign up for the marathon.
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Speaking of which, Jeff, when can I expect your registration?
Start at 40 mpw, don't finish there. Work up to 70 or so.
The Greatest of All Time
Ugh. I've got lots of miles to do.
Nobody has a fine time running the Monkey.
It is hell on hills.
Then I will hate Trent.
I have no hills to train on.
