–What a WEEK it has been on the work front! But alas I am squeezing some time to myself in. I’ve been doing some dark runs lately and I enjoy changing it up. Just call me Chelsea “change it up” TheDancingRunner Ross.
–I am RACING THIS WEEKEND (say what?!) and I have to say this is going to be a much needed time on my feet, ultra fun run!! I’ve already seen the course, and I am excited to get out there with some of my friends. My good friend (who used to take my spin class back when I taught at 24) is the race director of this race. She’s also a badass ultra runner! Should be some good times.
–I am doing the baby ultra (just 6 hours) there is also a 12 and 24 hour run. I kinda like ending the year on a ‘baby ultra’ note. I will get a feel for this race then if I end up liking it I’ll return next year for something longer.
–On Cyber Monday I did some shopping and signed up for MY FAVORITE RACE the Hachie 50! That is one race I do not mind doing over and over again.
–As much as I enjoy the 100 miler distance – I mean I did do it, twice – I will say that is one race distance that you do have to change it up to enjoy. For me at least. I do know lots of trail runners that do the same races multiple times, just to get the different buckles and bragging rights. I am a believer in once you’ve done the HUNDO you can just say you’ve done one and people (your average Joe) will be more than impressed.
–One day I may run another one, but I think eventually I’d like to do the 24 hour race (running for time as opposed to distance) and get more than 100 miles in on a flat, fast course. Hopefully the ‘rona won’t get worse and I can set my sights on that for 2022.
–I will say that this without a doubt made me giggle yesterday. Omarion is an r&b singer for those who don’t know.
Share some randomness with me about your day!!
My fellow hundo runner peeps- I know I have a few out there…like you Ash…anyone out there enjoy doing the same 100 milers over and over again?!? Maybe there’s something about the familiarity of it and knowing you can finish.
