Weekly Training Summary: March 14 to 20, 2016

Week 14 of Gorge 100k training marked the start of my taper! Wow, I can’t believe my race is less than two weeks away now … crazy! I took a couple days off at the start of the week and only ran once on the weekend. To get my trail fix on Sunday, I volunteered for the Cap Crusher. I’m looking forward to some more tapering in the weeks ahead!

I started running about three years ago. Until this time i had never considered myself a runner and actually hated running. I'm not sure what changed but i'm glad it did! I enjoy sharing my thoughts, training, and experiences through my blog and encouraging and supporting others in their running journeys. Since becoming a runner, I have completed a handful of half marathons, three full marathons, and four ultra marathons. However, my biggest accomplishments have been running the Rim2Rim2Rim in the Grand Canyon and completing a seven-day, 250km stage race in the Alps. These were adventures of a lifetime and something I had never imagined that I would do even in my wildest dreams!
