I'm currently training for a 50K race. That's right. It seems crazy, doesn't it? Some days I think it is. I'm so busy with work and my children and everything else.
But here's the thing. I'm not getting any younger. And I want to do a marathon. But I want to do trail running. I find too much road running boring. I just love running in a forest on trails. It's very therapeutic for me. It's peaceful.
For some reason, there aren't any trail marathons that I have found. Trail races seem to jump from 25K to 50K. A marathon is 42K.
That's why I'm doing a 50K. I've also done several 25K now, so I feel like it's time to move to the next level.
I may never do it again.
But I'll be an ultra runner. (I love the sound of that.)
