Coming off the Bear Mountain 50 km Ultra Marathon in New York, I am sore and tired all over. That race was one of the toughest I have ever done due to the hills and rocky terrain. But, it tested my fitness level and mental toughness. I just reminded myself to suck it up. 🙂
Knowing that my goal is to conquer the Bruce, I know it is important to get a full 80 km training day on the trail. I pick my date – May 24th. This run will help me navigate the maps and get comfortable with unknown territory. I decide to tackle the Bruce Trail from Belfountain to passed Crawford Lake. I am pumped and ready, getting all my support people in place and gather up some running buddies for parts of the trail.
The real beauty in training for something like this lies within your ability to seek help from others. I am so very lucky to have some great friends, who think I am crazy for running so LONG – but value my intentions! In the past, I would ever ask help, but now I know it only makes you stronger and wiser,
The Houston Family is one of those AMAZING families who have been the greatest friends anyone can ask for! Them, along
Here are some pics of this great day. I felt loved, supported and free!
