Trail Tuesday 3/21

A few week's ago during my 20 mile run I had a magical moment on the trail. During the second loop of the trail, I came across a clearing and could see a lot of birds diving for fish. Upon closer inspection, I came about a foot away from a Great Blue Heron, which loyal readers know is "my bird". I was so in awe of it and was almost afraid to take a picture because I did not want it to fly away. That moment gave me extra motivation to finish my run as strong as ever.

Earth Day 50k Training Update 3

This past week was the first time I felt challenged beyond what my body was capable of. I started out the week feeling great after the long run, but by the end of the week I was exhausted. This week's lesson was in rest and recovery.

Earth Day 50k Training Update 2

The balancing act continued this past week as I somehow managed to adjust to a new job, morning running, and a 20 mile long run. I might be crazy, but I am actually happy that the clocks jumped ahead last night as now I can get in some runs after work.

Earth Day 50k Training Update

What a week! I started my new job, became a morning runner, and ran one of my longest training runs in a while. Needless to say, I am exhausted! I am still working on balancing a new job, training for my first ultra, and everything else in life, but I know that each week will get easier.
