Double Dog Daring

I decided if it's not too late to register for it(and I can either register in a non traditional way since I no longer have home internet)...I am going to attempt the 100k Dairyland Dare. I really need to nip my self doubt in the bud and challenge myself. I have been filling myself self with too much I shouldn't I couldn't.

Wish me luck!! At the very least the training will help my body become better conditioned.
