My year-long journey to complete my first Ironman Triathlon.
Sunday, January 10, 2010
I'm not sure why I am so drawn to trail running. It could be the just the raw aspect of being in nature and exploring, which is exactly my spirit.
Trails, especially, with lots of elevation change, are very tough and challenging. I hit the best trail system in Nashville this morning, Percy Warner Park, and it once again kicked my rear end. It's like I'm a beginning runner on trails.
7.62 miles in 1:32. 12 minute miles and every one was earned. I "presumed" that I was in decent running shape. Decent on the roads, not close to decent on trails.
StumpJump 50K in October is looming mighty LARGE on my horizon. I have lots of practice/training to do.
