Well, I completed my last 5 peaks race on Aug 18… I actually end up missing the 5th race on Sep 29 as we will be in Costa Rica.
The Nakiska/Delta course was a great track – for me as a novice/beginner runner 🙂 A lot of flat, and a giant ~2km downhill in the middle. Which was great because I showed up that morning thinking it was 12km – which was tough enough to accept – when I suddenly learned it was 14km. Deer in the headlights ensued.
I made it. I finished 64th. . . Out of 65! It was a blast, and I am very happy that I pushed myself to “go big or go home”… What a way to end a season 🙂
And now I am starting a brand new training regime. I felt like I haven’t been able to make any improvements in my running for a couple years… so I’m obviously not doing this right. I have a lot of work ahead of me to get stronger & faster for next season! I’ve started training with Stenia Health & Performance. One of the first things they did was recorded me running. I have some, uh, room for improvement.
Wish me luck!
