I did not go into 2015 with the intention of running so many races. I knew that I would do a spring and fall marathon but all the in betweens just kind of happened. Running can be an individual sport but also very social. Given an opportunity to travel with running friends and run my first Ultra was too good to pass up! AND I have no regrets in doing so. I found out that my mental strength was quite strong. This of course boosted my confidence for bigger goals.
I remember just prior to running my Ultra I thought I was going to take it easy in 2016. Allow myself to recover fully and give my body a rest. If I could just get through running this race then I would likely slow down for a bit. Ummmm, so that didn’t happen!
