As the new year started, I decided to jump right in and enter another 100-mile race, the Rocky Raccoon 100, held in Huntsville, Texas. The 2005 Rocky Raccoon 100 was the first 100-mile race that I ever successfully finished. (My first 100-mile attempt was a DNF at 2004 Bear 100. I ran 87 miles). I had a great experience at Rocky in 2005. It greatly boosted my confidence that I could actually become a real ultrarunner.
