After reading all the great recaps and tweets about The North Face Endurance Challenge – California, it sounded like an awesome challenge. I wanted to run it.
The North Face Endurance Challenge has a couple of race lengths – 5k (3.1 miles), 10k (6.21 miles) , half marathon (13.1 miles), marathon (26.2 miles), 50k (31 miles), and 50 miles.
The events take place in the Marin Headlands, the course features scenic views with some drastic elevation change.
Guess what I did? I signed up. Duh. 50k. Go big or go home, right?
This will be my first 50k AND first trail race. I’m scared, nervous, excited and can’t wait to run it!
Now it’s time to read every article and blog on training for a 50k…
Do you have a favorite blog for training for an ultramarathon?
Usually I would be posting a recap of the San Francisco Marathon. However I was unable to run it this year due to an IT band issue. Instead I’m posting the recaps of my fellow AWESOME San Francisco Ambassadors.
