Finally after being able to string a few short runs together this week I feel like I am digging out of the pit of injury that I have been in since early July.
Now that I am finally running agin I can’t help but think about BIG goals.
What has been on my heart for years and I want to ALL IN on is running a 100 mile trail race. I am not sure if one will happen in 2021 for me because everyone from 2020 will be rolling over and you just never know what life will throw at you but I am going all in to make it happen in the next couple year. I would love it to be the Leadville 100 but I am open to other races if I can’t get in.
I had really wanted to run a 50 miler this year, it was my big goal. But with quarantine, no child care and an injury that goal has had to be postponed. But I really don’t want this year to end without at least running a marathon.
With everything cancelled or unsafe I am hoping to run a virtual marathon in December (anyone know a great one connected to a good charity?)
In January I am hoping to run the Arches Ultra 50k if things are safe enough by then. I ran the half marathon back in 2019 and loved it.
Then we will see where the year leads and what races I can get into.
I am calling this All In because going from couch to 100 mile is going to everything I’ve got. I plan to do everything I can to achieve this goal including: strength training, stretching, rolling, learning about nutrition, working on form, learning as much as I can along the way and sharing it here!
So come along with me, what BIG goal are you chasing?
