I’ve been sitting on this idea for a while and commitment has been minimal. But, the “what’s next?” itch lingers in my mind. Of done endurance mountain bike races, marathons, half marathons, so now what? At first it was going to be a 15 mile backcountry snowshoe race, but it was canceled. I know I have wanted to seek out more running races that were trail specific as I’m not much of a road racer and of course the trails call my name.
Today I committed. Today I committed that this would be the year of a 50k trail race.
- It’s a trail race
- It’s not 50 miles
- But, it’s over 26 miles
- I’m turning 30 and each mile represents a year?
- Why not?
So, I need ideas. Anyone run a good first 50k trail race? Or heard of some good ones? I am think July or August.
