Stable Boy had glanced through the race prep page which recommended you be able to run 7 miles. He assumed the race was just that-a 7 miler.
Yesterday he was talking to his brother and was stunned to discovered the race is actually 13 miles long. That is almost twice as long as what he thought he would be running. That's a half-marathon. That's a half marathon disguised as an obstacle course!
Stable Boy is pretty fit and has been working out everyday, but he has not been training to run 13 miles. Somebody (not naming any names here!) is going to be really sore in a couple weeks!
