I have done something insane! I've signed up for the Wild Idaho 50K Endurance Ultramarathon. www.runwildidaho.com The race is 8/6/2011. This has cut 2 months off of my training plan for a marathon and I'm doing MORE than a marathon. Nothing rational in that thought process but who cares...I'm only living once and I don't know what I'm capable of until I try.
Drinking coffee on the way to the race start the morning of the 50K.
It was cold and it had been a very cold nights sleep. I had no idea the joy that awaited me on the trail....no idea at all!
My final sprint across the finish line
Finish time of WIFKER - Wild Idaho 50K (first ever 50K) 10:23:10 - 08/06/2011
The salt on my shorts I wore during the race. No road running ever left me this depleted.
I was hooked. I would do this again and again and again! I knew that this trail ultra was not my last and that I would be back for more.
