5 peaks # 4 – Nakiska/Delta


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 πŸ™‚ 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!Β  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 πŸ™‚

And now I am starting a brandΒ  new training regime.Β  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.Β Β  I have a lot of work ahead of me to get stronger & faster for next season!Β  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!
