[RC] 100s - Larry Miller

I did my last 100 in 1991.  As I was coming into the 75 mile check, all I
could think of was why are you doing this to your body!!  I was 51 at the
time.  I applaud anyone who does a 100.  They are tough on the rider and the
horse.  Everything hurts and your horse thinks you are crazy.  BUT when you
are done, there is a great feeling of accomplishment.  I distance ride
because I love to ride, I love having a well conditioned horse, but above
all, the whole experience is supposed to be fun.  When it is no longer fun,
then I quit doing it.  I am not into punishment to prove a point.  I may not
be doing 50s anymore unless someone can develop a pain pill that allows no
pain to come thru!!  If I am limited to doing 15 mile novices, so be it.  At
least I am still coming to trail camp, I am still seeing old friends and
making new ones, and I am STILL riding.  Jeanie
