Phase 2 of 4 nine week training phases is now complete which means that my training for my first 100 mile trail run is now half way over (see my Phase 1 recap here)! It’s crazy to think that 18 weeks ago I set sail on this journey and that I only have 18 weeks… Continue reading Training Phase 2: 100 Miles
After my awesome 100km trail run this spring, I decided to make the jump and signed up for my first 100 mile trail run late this year. The 2018/2019 run season is the last run season of my 30’s and what a better way to round out this decade than with my first century run!… Continue reading Training Phase 1: 100 Miles

In case you missed it, you can read about it here or listen to my podcast interview about it here (link in the post). Looking… Continue reading I’m Going to Run 50 Miles!
Yesterday I did something that I never thought I would ever be able to say! I ran my first ultramarathon! According to Wikipedia, an ultramarathon, “is any footrace longer than the traditional marathon length of 42.195 kilometres (26.219 mi).” In yesterday’s case, it was the Prickly Pear 50k, a 31 mile trail run.
