I got talked into signing up for my second 100 before I was even recovered from my first! :-)


     



    Alright, you're off the hook.     I guess I did fall for the peer pressure thing once.  After my first 50K (the same year as my first marathon), I signed up right away for another one two months later.  Then after the second one, I couldn't resist the peer pressure to do a third

    one week

    later. Opps. My only non-100-miler DNF.

    Ah yes, but beer is also part of a well rounded training diet....especially Guinness or good Canadian beer.

    Doritos, on the other hand, one can get carried away with if not careful.  Seems to me I recall a freight train called Doritos rolling out of control that ended up in a firey inferno in a not too distant past.
