Every mile seemed like a slog. I was dreading the four plus hours I'd be spending on my feet.
This reminds me - once again - that running this 50K event isn't just going to be a physical challenge. Spending seven-ish hours on my feet is going to be mentally taxing.
So my valuable take away from this hard run: Don't think about the mileage ahead and just concentrate on the next step.
