Well as the title of my blog suggests, I want to be an Ultra Runner!!! I want to cover distances and smile with like minded folks beating the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks out of themselves just for the fun of it!
So, I signed up for my FIRST 50K! The Buckeye Trail 50K!!
It may be early in my running career (it will be 2 years in April of 2010,) but I know I can do it. I'm looking forward to the challenge and the training leading up to it! And best of all, my best friend and Sis, Jess, is going to run it as well!
This will be Jess's second running of the summer Buckeye and she kicked butt last year with a time of 5:38:50 for her SECOND EVER 50K. It'll be great to see here at the finish and chat about our training as we get there... She's one heck of a runner, clocking in 70 some miles this week!
So, the training begins. I have the Pittsburgh Marathon on May 2nd on my way to my first BT50K! Great way to get my distance up then concentrate on the trails!
I'll keep you posted!
Stay safe, keep your soles to the ground, and keep moving forward!
