Don’t let the distance scare you

While browsing some runners blogs and websites I came across these paragraph by Karl King – not sure who he is, but I think it’s classic:

When my longest run was 13 miles, a marathon seemed nearly impossible.
When my longest run was 26 miles, 50 miles seemed nearly impossible.
When my longest run was 50 miles, 100 miles seemed nearly impossible.
When my longest run was 100 miles, 50 miles seemed like a nice, long training run.

Don’t let the distance scare you; run from aid station to aid station and the distance will take care of itself.
