I started the year with one BIG goal.
However I never shared that goal.
Then I spent the first few months of the year more sick than not and things got put on the back burner. Well, the race dropping my distance and changing locations and dates didn’t help either but that’s another story.
Then I circled back around. Why not? Let’s do this.
And that is a 50K.
Some of you are possibly saying hell yeah! While others are saying, yeah no, you just need to stop.
Don’t get me wrong- I am not aiming to run this thing tomorrow, or even next month. I realize this is going to take some time. I need time on my feet, miles under my belt, mountains to climb.
I also need to practice my fueling. Because well, I don’t. I may have been able to skate through 2 marathons that way but that won’t work if my aim is for dirty trails and steep climbs.
I will have time to practice my fueling over the next few months. As I have more than a few races planned that I’ve not yet mentioned.😆
At this point I am tossing around 50k races happening early 2020. Typing that year was kind of scary. Makes the race seem less frightening, ha! However that means I have a few months to get my act together. Which is good as some my options are BEASTS.
So, tell me your thoughts! Am I crazy? Any tips?
