50 Mile Race Coming Up
Time for a Flagstaff stop-off on our way home, but not before waking up to the first snowfall of the year. On Saturday, I woke up to a winter wonderland! I looked out of the RV and saw a beautiful view - snow covered the ground, our Jeep and the mountain behind the KOA Flagstaff campground.
Last week, I ran 52 miles while on vacation in Yosemite and Bakersfield, California. Back at home in Texas, I've put in 3 days of running: a 9, 6 and 10 mile run. Tomorrow, I hope to run 5 miles. My neighborhood park is nice, but I've missed running on the beautiful Yosemite trails like I did last week. At least I don't have to watch out for bears now!
I ran the Pass Mountain 50K trail race in Arizona on November 12 and my next race will be held on December 10 and it's going to be a long one...
50 miles is the longest distance I've ever run and my next race will be my second time to stand at the start line of a 50 mile race - the Brazos Bend 50 Mile Trail Race in Texas. As usual when racing in Brazos Bend State Park, counting the 'gators will be a good distraction!
