I was given notification last month that I’m racing the San Juan Solstice 50 Miler in June, but by making something commemorative, it feels truly official. I’m not entirely sure why…perhaps the permanence of this post will hold me more accountable to tackle this thing or the process of creating it is preparing me for the what will be a significant increase of my already determined commitment to mountain running. ⛰
Training has been steady since Laugavegur 55k in Iceland last year and I’ve run a number of ultras and endurance events, but this race will for certain take me far outside of my comfort zone—requiring my getting to a place I’m equally scared as shit but excited as hell to visit. This was absolutely my bright idea.
An edit to commemorate the pending sufferfest.
