Runners High

For years I didn’t think this actually existed. It was a way for the avid runners to trick the beginners into thinking there is some special reward for the punishment of pounding out miles. I always thought it was some secret club I could never belong to. I mean I have been running for a while now. I wouldn’t call it training for a marathon style, but I have always been an active person and enjoyed the satisfaction of...

January Training Update

Ok so I thought it was time for an update as it’s been about a month since I registered for the Squamish 50 50km trail race. I am still feeling very excited about the race which is a good sign.

Ultrarunner?

Oh my goodness, what did I just do? Ok so I just signed up for the Arc’teryx Squamish 50 50km race August 10,2013.  So far my amateur running career (if I can be so bold as to call it any kind of career) consists of a 10 mile and a 13 mile in 2009 and then a  full marathon in 2011 and 2012.  Just looking at the list on this page makes me realize I don’t really take baby steps when it comes to things like this.
