…since I’ve written a post on my blog. So much has happen since. Just a quick update on things, the hip has finally healed. It took over 8 months! That was the longest 8 months of my life. Since then I’ve completed a few major races, one of them being The Berlin Marathon. I had the time of my life out there but, would I ever do the race again, probably not. The course was just too crowded. But don’t get me wrong, it is definitely one race any marathoner should complete.
Another spectacular race was Antelope Canyon 55k!! This was the most beautiful and challenging race I have ever ran. The course takes you out to Horseshoe Bend and also into the slot canyons. Over 23 of the 35 miles were on sand!! Definitely wear some sand gaiters. These are the ones that I purchased. Raid Light Gaiters! I took them to a local cobbler and he was able to stitch the velcro to the tops of my shoe and they worked out beautifully! I did not have any issues with the sand entering my shoes at all!
Check out some photos from the race.
In the last year, I have been really focused on yoga and just trying to get stronger overall. You know what they say, it will keep you injury free. knock on wood 🙂
So what is on the agenda for 2017? I have my sights set on Fontana Half. There are a few goals that I’d like to accomplish at this race. My training has been going ok. I hope I can continue it with a little over a month to go. The other race on the list is Skyline to Sea 50k. This will be a lot of fun since over 20 Go FARian’s have signed up to do this race. It will be more exciting to see a few folks accomplish their first 50k! I can’t wait!!
That is it for now…I hope to be able to contribute more this coming year!
Until next time!
