Learning from my 100 mile mistakes...

I've been reflecting on my 100 mile experience last year at Burning River. In an attempt to correct my mistakes, here's how I would grade my run last year:
  • Training base (mileage): D+
  • Crosstraining: A-
  • Hydration: A
  • Electrolytes: A
  • Heat acclimation: B+
  • Chafing prevention: C+
  • Foot care: C-
  • Caloric intake: D+
  • Clothing: B+
  • Gear: B
  • Lighting: B+
  • Pacing/ race strategy: C
  • Drop bags: B-
  • Mental toughness: D+
I think I will be better prepared this year. Failure can be a wonderful teacher.
