Of course, the Ascent is my biggest running accoplishment.
What I like about trail/mountain running:
Trail running is the only running I enjoy. It is my time to decompress from the chaos of work and life. I love the mountain air with its crisp and refreshing feel. I catch myself smiling as I'm running :)
Favorite running trail and why:
There are too many favorites to count. A few are: Section 16, Waldo, and Barr.
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Again- the Ascent. It challenges my physical and emotional state of being.
Running pet peeves:
My biggest pet peeve on the trail is people who don't have trail etiquette and are rude.
Other hobbies and interests:
I enjoy almost everything outdoors: Rock climbing, mountian biking, snowboarding, snowshoeing, etc.
I also love to dance, drink coffee or wine with friends, read aloud to children, and spend time with my mother.
This year's goal is to really make improvements in my Garden of the Gods run. I've only run in the race once before and I was completely unprepared. I plan on beginning my training early and continuing up through ascent day.
