Hello again! This past Saturday, Riccardo and I headed for the mountains for a little weekend getaway. A night of camping, a bit of trail work, and a 23.6 mile (38km) alpine run along the Heather Trail did just the trick. It was a challenging but extremely rewarding weekend. Growing up on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, I was always intimidated by the magnitude and mystery of mountains. Flat terrain, paved roads, and "short" distances were my comfort zone. This past weekend I came to realize the beauty in the rugged and undulating miles. Thanks to a couple of awesome ladies who let me join their training run (thanks again Jenn and Miruna), I came to the realization that, "Yeah, I think I could do a 50km." Perhaps after the Victoria MarathonI'll set my sights on my first ultra!
Colin Easthope showed me the Brandi Carlile tune below a few weeks ago. Oh the harmonies (swoon)! I thought it'd be just perfect to share with you.
Happy Friday. Enjoy!
