It was like planning a week-long hike to be done in only 1 day (29 hours actually). I ended up completing it under the time limit by walking the entire way! Oh, and it was actually 101.4 miles. I know it doesn't sound much longer, but after a hundred miles that extra 1.4 miles is REALLY slow! So, now that I've completed a 100-miler I use it as a screen name.
Mad respect... I have a marathon cross country hike I'm prepping for in march...
