This weekend was an adventure to say the least. This beautiful soul @heatherrosescott flew from San Fran to run @runforwater 50k with me 🏃🏽♀️Well, what started out as a 50k with a 5am roll call quickly became an 'apparently' converting meters into feet would have been helpful and looking at the course map might have been an indication that this trail race was no joke. Insert sad face 😞 We didn't make the first 25k lap cut off time (missed it by 34 mins) due to the unexpected 'summit of Mt. Sumas and crazy vertical. So what do crazy ass #trailsisters do🤷🏼♀️ We run the 10k course to add to our 25k. Unbeknownst to us, yet again, 2000 more feet of climbing 😳 We ended with a total of 22 miles, over 6100 ft elevation gain, a shitton of belly laughs, trail thoughts and one liners, sore quads, a kick ass beautiful day on one of the most gorgeous courses ever, a solid training run for Squamish, raised $$ for an amazing cause (SAFE & CLEAN water for Ethiopia), and a long lasting friendship with this chick. Oh, and we were the only 2 females for the 50k #girlpower 👊🏼 I would say that's a victory 🏆. . .
