For quite some time I’ve felt the pull… the pull of something a little more out of the ordinary as far as racing goes. Something off the beaten path. Something that provides a new challenge. Something that gives me a renewed sense of desire to excel (in some minimal way) in this crazy sport I love.
Cross-country, trail running/racing, (ahem) ultra marathons, and other random events are quickly becoming the focus of my racing calendar. This evening I added another new event to my schedule. A 4k! I mean, really? Racing less than 2.5 miles? On a Wednesday afternoon? At 3:00 PM? I’m game! (It’s a small charitable event… details HERE. Or check out the Run Oregon race preview HERE.)
Hmm… what’s next???
I will also note that I picked up my first-ever copy of Trail Runner magazine today. Yep. I’ve got the bug!
