Here’s the Races that I have planned – both those I am registered for and those I am seriously dreaming about and making plans for accomplishing.
August 10-11, 2018 – Ragnar Trail Appalachians
One of the greatest aspects of the running community is the immediate connections that are made. While visiting DC, I was connected by a running friend in Phoenix with a running friend in DC and within minutes I was a part of their Ragnar Team for Ragnar Trail Appalachians. Ragnar is an amazingly fun event – 24 hours of running, camping, sweating, laughing, and disconnecting from the world.
Sept 8, 2018 – *McKenzie River Trail Run 50K
Last year my husband and I were lucky enough to get picked in the lottery for this amazing race. It is along our favorite river trail in the world (though we have many more to try)! Unfortunately, a forest fire threatened the course and the race was cancelled. This year, we get to by-pass the lottery and I am not missing this opportunity! Read this post to learn about why this race is so important to me.
April 12, 2018 – *Zion Ultras 100K
I will pick some race or two or three in between McKenzie River Trail Run 50K and this race, but I have been thinking about what my next big challenge is going to be. In February of 2018, I ran my first 50 miler. It was such a magical experience and it all started when I got an email letting me know registration was coming. Well, I received a similar email about the Zion 100K and it is tugging on my heart strings. I planned to run another 50 miler first, however, I am feeling so compelled and drawn to this race that I feel it is meant to be. I can’t pass up something that is meant to be!!
