14:23 minute miles, that's all I have to do to run 100 miles in under 24 hours.  No big deal.   It seems so slow like nothing but 100 miles is a 100 miles.  I was trying to figure out what my pace for the race should be basing things off of my 50 mile races.  My first race was a rails to trails flat course with a pace of 9:50 and my 2nd race was a more technical trail that I'm told is more technical than the rocky raccoon.  My pace was 12:04 for that race.  100 miles is a full 50 miles farther than a 50 mile race but isn't the last 50 miles all mental.  I feel like mental is were I'm most strong.  I definatly handle pain better than the general public but compared to other distance runners I'm probably a big wuss.    I chit chatted with the guy who says he'll help me out with the pacing for the rocky raccoon.  Talking about what my pace might be.  I didn't want to scare him off by telling him I find cursing and dirty rap songs very motivating when I'm in pain and would rather die than run anymore.  I think he might be down with it though.

From my new running Journal.  I'm loving this quote.  I certainly don't think I'm a great but I really like the work a lot aspect of the quote.
