[RC] 100 milers - Budler,Cindy - Afrox

Someone might have already said this(haven't finished reading all the
digests yet), but the reason I love 100 milers is the speed. I have accepted
that my goal in endurance is completion- I just cannot push any horse I ride
to complete a 50 miler in the speeds required to win, especially out here
where winning speeds are all in excess of 25km/h. I just am too chicken, too
conservative and too damn scared of what those speeds might do to my horse!
So, where can I be competitive? In 100 milers!! Have myself and my horse
fitter than most others, really work harder and understand more about
metabolics, nutrition, and the management and pacing of my horse and put it
to the ultimate test. 100 milers are more difficult- this is where all the
management really shows , but luck is a s ever always a big factor. I have
only done a few 100 milers on my previous horse, but NOTHING has ever and
will ever eclipse that feeling of completing a 100 miles on a horse that is
sound and happy and still spooking at the finish line!! And  a bonus is that
really back of pack "slow" speed that gets you nowhere in a 50 miler can ,
with a bit of luck and tactics , put you in top 10 for a 100 miler!
