Moab Trail Marathon

8 May

I just signed up for the Moab Trail Marathon in November.

I am super excited to try a trail marathon. I was getting kind of bored with running the streets of my city, so I started hitting the many trails in my area and have found that, although challenging, I really enjoy trail running.

I think my longest trail run so far is 9 miles or so, so I have a long way to go before I am comfortable dragging myself 26.2 miles through nature. From what I can gather from pics I have seen, this is a pretty technical course. It looks really fun though. I can’t wait!

    I’m running my first 50k in October on trails and am super nervous!!! And I hear ya. I’m going to need to go for some test runs before raceday because I KNOW I will trip and fall on a root. 😉 haha -H (iamlyons.com)

      Wow, a 50k is an awesome goal!

      What I like about trail running is, I give myself a break and let go of expectations (of pace) and just run for fun. When I’m not going for a certain time, I relax and run much more cautiously. Haven’t hurt myself/fallen yet!

      Good luck and happy training!
