PIKES PEAK MARATHON- ALSO HOST OF THE USA MARATHON TRAIL CHAMPIONSHIPS...THIS SUNDAY!!!!
I am waiting patiently for the opportunity to hit the trails in race mode once again. This weekend I will be joining many others as we battle it out for a national title (including my newest team,TeamColorado http://teamcolorado.blogspot.com/ . This would be my 3rd one of the year if I were to win! My body is still trying to catch up on speed endurance but otherwise, with therapy I have little leg pain. Feeling strong and confident means nothing on the great Pikes Peak though. This mountain can make you dig deeper than an ultra marathon. I will embrace the challenge! This past weekend, my hubby Wyatt, and the dogs Bo and Zoey set out on yet another test run up Barr trail.
The run went well...my speed endurance has improved and I look forward to dominating the downhill once again! I also discovered the BEST new flavor of GU ENERGY GELS... Salty Caramel!!! Getcha some! seriously...what a tasty treat (even during the day when no one is looking) hehe. *** Also, a quick shout out to Steve Konjura as he embarks on his first 100 mile journey, the Leadville 100! Go get em Steve!
