Hey peeps. Just looking ahead to the next adventure. Is anyone from here headed out to the Mohican 100 in Ohio? That's my next stop on the NUE 100 tour. I've got a couple of races in between but this is my next big race. I should be doing the Tour de Lake, Wawayand and Tymor in the meantime. Let me know.

My fellow High Gear co-horts are trying to talk me into the 101, Tim and Bert do it every year and say it's a blast, I have no plans yet, but my arm can be twisted I'm sure;)

What's your favorite beer...I'll donate a 6 pack to the cause... Come on this will be round two of the 101 for me. It'd be nice to have some more company!

Actually, I just checked the date, it's the Saturday after Mt.Snow nationals...Getting back-to-back weekend excursions past both my job and my wife may be hard, but I'll see what I can pull;)

doesn't drink beer

Hey Jim this is Ray with the blur(aka Go Big). I don't drink beer either but I agree there's not too many of us out therre. As for a 100 miler I think I'd be found on the trail some days later being eaten by vultures.

I don't drink beer much but when I do it's good! I think a lot of people over estimate the 100 milers. Either that or I'm waaaaay too stubborn. They aren't really technically demanding for the most part, you just need to keep the wheels moving. You'll cramp, and they'll pass, them cramp some more, then walk some then cramp some more and by the time you know it you're done...lol. Put in some long days before to know what you're getting in for and register and do one. There's always bail out points if you get in trouble. You never know until you try...

Good work, Ryan!!! Last year we got 13 hours at SM100, hoping to break 10 hours at at least one of the hundies this year. We are doing Mohican, Wilderness and SM as well.

The key for me was hydration and energy replenishment. I went thru 5+ full 100oz camelbaks with HEED and 5 32oz bottles of Perpeteum.

I was stopping to take a leek almost every hour, and after the finish had to force myself to eat a burger, cos i wasn't really hungry, from all the perpeteum.

like Ryan said, steady was the key.

planning to minimize the time spent at the aid stations and not have any mechanicals, hoping that this alone would save us about 2+ hours over the course of the day.

Yea I'm excited with the time but I know it's one of the easeir ones to do. Last year I got 10:36 at the W101 so I'm looking to break 10 there this year. If I can get than done I'll be really happy. Planning on the Mohican and Shenandoah as well. We'll have to meet up and chill at the races.

Oh and you're right with the nutrition and hydration. I try to eat as often as I can and drink as often as well. I'll go through quite a bit although I've never had to stop and take a leak yet. Maybe I'm just efficient...lol. Camelback is the way to go. I don't think I'd drink enough if I didn't have one.
