Just 80 days until race day, I am getting really excited about Run Rabbit Run
But also a little scared from the website: “These are not beginner’s runs. The uphills and downhills are fairly steep. You’ll spend a lot of time at an altitude of nearly two miles. There may be snow, rain, sleet, wind, or then again, it may be hot. Please do not try to run this course if you’re not completely prepared.”
Can you ever be “completely prepared” for a 50 or 100 miler? Maybe, I just want to show up ready to give it my best.
Given that the race is so technical I have been thinking a lot about trail shoes. I ran a giant hole in my last pair of trail shoes so I have just been running on the trails in my road shoes (Hoka Clifton 5)
I have stepped on a rock a couple times and wished for more protection so I have began to wonder if I should get into a new pair of trail shoes.
Do you have a favorite? Anything good for long distances?
