Valencia Trail Race: 50K ULTRA
Ok, so I’ve OFFICIALLY signed up for my 1st ever ULTRA Trail Race! Clocking in at 50K (31 miles), it’s the SHORTEST distance that is given the official ‘ULTRA’ classification, but 31 miles is A LONG WAY FOR ME! However, since I started running for my health I decided not to put limits on myself. Instead, I put a wild goal out into the ether that one day I would run in one of those long distance 100mile Ultra Races. . .a far cry from hardly being able to run a mile back then! Now that I’ve finished a few Marathons (with a 3rd one the way) it’s time to throw myself into the land of the Ultra. This year I push myself further into my pain cave and see what happens!
The Valencia Trail Race is practically in my backyard and has a few different distances you can chose from. 10K, Half Marathon, and 50K Ultra. Hit the link under MORE INFO on the left for more details. . .it’s going to be challenging, but it also looks like it could be a TON of fun!
