Back in the saddle (running shoes) again!

Standard

Back out to the trails!
This past weekend, after a 2 week hiatus, I got back on the trails after my first 50 mile trail race. And it was worth the wait… It was beautiful since we’ve had so many storms and rain, the waterfalls were in full force!

We ran a point to point, a friends generous wife got up early and dropped us off at the furthest point and we ran back to our cars. From Pantoll to Ross, a 14 mile trek around the North side of Mt Tamalpais.

It’s time to start thinking about my training and race plans for 2015… It’s going to be a busy first 5 months!
February 1st is Kaiser Half Marathon, on Super Bowl Sunday- such a fun race and great way to test out the speed in the beginning of the year.
April will bring back to back marathon weekends, Boston Marathon on the 20th and Big Sur Marathon on the 26th (I’m part of the Boston 2 Big Sur group)
Then 3 weeks later we have a great group of running friend heading to run the Grand Canyon, Rim 2 Rim 2 Rim. An epic 46 miles and 11,000 feet of elevation change each way.

Happy Holiday week and go get in a run!

Anyone else already planning their training for 2015?

Anyone else use running as an excuse to escape the house for a bit, free of family and some time alone?

Yes please! 🙂
