Even as I move towards new goals this year it has still not set in that I ran 54 miles in the Mount Masochist Trail Run last November. To even be more honest when the race is spoke about with others some look at me strangely because they just don’t get why anyone would want to run that far not to mention running on the side of a mountain. This I can understand :)
To my surprise I received this month’s issue of Ultra Runner Magazine ( thanks Nick!) and was so excited to see my name in print in the mag. Even Bob’s was listed in another event for his 100 mile Ultra. I quickly called Bob and left this silly voicemail in my excitement. Seems that by seeing my name in print it somehow made it more real.
I would encourage anyone to embrace the trails. The events are like no other and those that toe the line are some of the most “real” people you could want to share the miles with. It is in the trails that I realized my real passion for running.
Last night Scott and I joined a local cycle team. TEAM HARPER
We are SUPER excited about this for so many reason.
One – It is something that we can share and do together.
Two – Team organized events to support charity organizations throughout the year.
Three – Being part of a team and group that encourages all levels of riders.
Four – Beer. Do I even need to explain this one? lol! This year is already so different from past years and goals. Having a goal to complete an Iron event in November is one thing but growing in other areas of our community is exciting. Very exciting. More on come …..
