Big Red Run Experience

I entered BBR to prove to myself that anything is possible if you keep trying. After tossing up for weeks on end 'Will I?', 'Won't I?'. Once I finally got the go button I knew I had a lot of work to do to get ready. Running for 8 months prior I was new to running and ultra running. With little to no information on multi day runs I decided to fly by the seat of my pants and just try. The goal was to finish and with that in mind I went it to.

The best thing I come away from BBR was that if I can get my mental state right then anything is possible. BBR is 99% mental and 1% physical.
I'm glad I did it and I would do it again in a heart beat.
