Prepping for the 100K Vertical Challenge to benefit Two Top Adaptive Sports Foundation

Tomorrow morning, I’ll head to Whitetail for another Saturday of ski-and-toboggan training (hey, just because they gave my my license doesn’t mean I’m an experienced driver). On Sunday, though, the most strenuous thing on my agenda is getting my skis tuned ahead of the 100K Vertical Challenge to benefit Two Top Adaptive Sports Foundation on Monday. Thinking about doing 107 runs in a single day at this point is a little bit like staring at the course map of a marathon once you’re already tapering—terrifyingly hard to wrap my brain around, even after preparing myself as best as possible. Luckily, since I’ve been signing up for crazy stuff like this for most of my adult life, I’m aware that this means I’ve picked the best kind of challenge—one that stretches my idea of what I can accomplish, and feels slightly out of reach but not out of reason.

I’ll be Tweeting throughout the event, and will be sure to update this blog when I’ve limped back inside after I finish. For now, check out this terrific Frederick News-Post story about the event … and wish me luck!
