Beyond Big Sur

Right around my one year runniversary (since I started running 5+ times a week), I'll be running here:

All photos are from Matt Hagan and are AMAZING.

Kinda nuts, eh?

I signed up for a trail 50k up at Sun Mountain in Winthrop, Washington on May 19th, 2013. It's going to be incredibly challenging and humbling, but I am hungry for something different. I love trail running here in Portland. I love nature. I love traveling. I like hills (I didn't say love!). So why not combine them all? My only goal is to finish and try to have a blast! I'm a slow poke, but I don't think that really matters if you bring something positive to the table and a good attitude. Will there be tough moments? Yeah, I'm sure of it. Will I finish? I sure hope so, but if I don't, I'll learn from it. At the very least in the potential moments of adversity I'm going to remind myself how far I've come and just breath in the scenery.

  1. Holy crap. That is at once beautiful - I LOVE trails and terrifying - I HATE hills. I have never run a trail race, but train on a trail near my house a lot. What an incredible view it will be the whole time.
