Alternate title: Comfort Zones are overrated.
I spent the last 30 hours fairly far outside my comfort zone. I did a few things I’ve never done before – one of which included a worm and a hook. But I’ll tell you all about that in a post next week once I’ve downloaded the pictures.
Anyways, right at the moment, I’m feeling a little bit “I am woman, Hear Me Roar”. So, I am going to capitalize on that and commit to running the North Face Endurance Half Marathon on June 2nd as my 8th half marathon this year.
Who wants to join me?
The North Face Endurance Challenge offers something for everyone: 5k, 10k, Half Marathon, Marathon, 50K, and 50 Miles! According to all my local friends, unless it rains (which apparently turns it into a total mudfest), this is a good first trail experience. Since I’ve been running a bunch of half marathons this year and some of them were on dirt/not technical trails, I figure this is my next step.
I said 2013 was going to be epic. Apparently “epic” includes doing things that scare me. Guess I ought to get in a long run this weekend… though I did hike up a tiny mountain yesterday…
Disclaimer: North Face offered me 50% off for declaring my intentions. As you might guess, I would run it anyways and would be blogging about my adventure even without incentive…
