Spent a bit too much time on Kevin Sayer's site today.  The best is the ultrarunner jokes- I can relate to far too many of them. http://www.ultrunr.com/youknow.html

Good luck this coming weekend Jon.

Do you have a hard time focusing on anything else in the week prior to a 100 miler?

Thanks. And I plead the fifth.
