Nobody cares if you're not a good dancer. Just get up and dance. The same holds true for racing. Whether first or last, we all cross that same finish line. Just get out there and run.

Hitting The Trails

I posted about doing my first trail run here, and I am sure you were wondering why I would do that. Well, the wonderful people from The North Face Endurance Challenge contacted me and gave me the opportunity to participate in their race that's coming to the Atlanta area in October. I'll be honest with you, it definitely out of my comfort zone, but like I tell B all the time... "How do you know if you'll like something unless you try it?"So, here we go, I'm trying it and getting ready for The North Face Endurance Challenge 5k, I chose the 5K because this is my first trail race and I did not want to over do it for the first race. So, stay tuned to hear all about my new adventures in trail running.

Check out this video about the race.

Trail running is great. Just go out there to have fun and don't worry about how long you take. It also makes you very strong.

I think you'll love it! My 3rd race ever was a 5K trail. It was so much fun. I felt sort of just free. It had a completely different vibe from the road races I had done. Dang, now I want to go do another one. I'd join you, but Atlanta is a bit far away! ;)
