Doing the marathon went well but it reminded me that I don't like racing on the road anymore. During those dormant years, I ran the The Deadwood Michelson Trail Marathon and loved it. And I recently moved to mountain bike/trail running country. It's here that I quickly discovered endurance races on trails and realized that this is what gets me excited. Very excited. I'm not young anymore but I still have a lot of adventure to experience. So to focus my time and energy on a dream of the past doesn't make sense right now. Moving forward into new challenges does. It's where I want to go. Where I need to go.
This year's agenda: Dirty Kanza 200. Carson City Off-Road 50 miler. Tahoe Trail 100k
Note: I was trying to sell my 2005 Felt S32 triathlon bike and someone mentioned it was overpriced and obsolete. Funny. Maybe I really don't want to sell it. It would be fun to know if an obsolete gal and her obsolete bike could compete with the best out there. Maybe next year.
