I will admit that I have been keeping a
little secret. Kind of.
I MIGHT be running an ultra marathon. Next month. I may or may not have known this for about a month or so. Shall I explain?
An older man who goes to my church ran on the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail in PA with his brother for years when he was in his ‘prime’. They decided to make their running route into a race in the 1980’s. A 77 mile race. The race can be split into a relay, ran individually, or one can complete a 50k.
Jim’s Uncle and I do long runs together whenever we can. We both decided to check out the trail on Saturday morning to see if we wanted to run the 50k next month (we were going to do the relay but can’t find anyone as crazy as us to do it too….). We planned to run from mile 1 to mile 19.
We ended up running 24 miles. It was an accident. We got a little lost! But it ended up being fun.
Thankfully I had some FUEL!
I was a little bit afraid because my long run last week was only 11 miles. 11 miles to 24 miles is a BIT of a jump. So I will be on the look out for ANY pain.. plus I will be taking the next few days off to recoup!
Just thought I’d let everyone in on the possibility of a 50k (30 miles) race next month..
Should I do it?!
