Regardless of outcome...I am always UP for the Challenge. There have been many successes and a few misses. And while I always hope for a "finish" in the end...this time I came away just as satisfied with an EPIC experience. .
22miles and 6,100 FT of climbing UP and descending down the highly technical trails of Sumas Mountain in 🇨🇦!! It was to date the HARDEST and most beautiful race I have ever ran. And while the goal was 50k and 11k of climbing...we came away 9 mi and 5 k short due to a missed cutoff by 34min...Damn.IT🤦🏼♀️ That shit was HARD! ..................... BUT what a wild and amazing run it was! A great training day for Squamish 50/50 and a good reminder that no matter what the trail throws at you, with a SMILE, a POSITIVE attitude, a lot of raunchy humor and swear words😃😈....you CAN push thru crazy hard shiz and you will are BETTER for it. .
I am so thankful for the amazing women in my life who encourage, support and ask me to push myself to be better! In this case @mvdunham5_runs Was THE MOST amazing running partner you ROCK Trail Sis! Believe it or not we've only met and ran once before...liked her so much I was willing to fly to Canada and try and climb up and down a mountain with her 😂Seriously not sure if my abs hurt from laughing or All.That.Climbing and Descending 🤔😂 ..
