signing up for my first 100 mile race coming up in February 2014,
I have been researching online different training schedules and trying to find
one that will work for me and my life and my brain. I've narrowed it down
to 2 different ones. They are both recommended for newbie and first timers
of the 100 mile distance. The problem is they require 24 weeks of training and
I basically have only about 13 weeks. Yeah, slight problem. Can I be
ready for a 100 mile race in such a short amount of time? Ready or not
I'm going to have to be. One of the ways I can get some good solid,
intense runs in are by running in the mountains so close to home here.
Last Saturday I posted on FB and invited anyone to join me. We got
a good turn out of 10 people and meandered all around the hills for a few hours.
We had a good time and my heart is just really happy when I get to run up
here. I feel so incredibly lucky to live so close to some beautiful
We spent a little over 2 hours out here in the weather and 8.25 miles later I got back to my car. I was ready to get my wet jacket, gloves and headband off and get into a warm car. It was definitely a fun experience and I'm hoping to do it again soon.
