Having been a runner as a teenager, I knew how great I felt when I ran. I didn’t like the act of running, but my mood was always improved by a run. After age twenty, running was long out of the picture for more glamourous past times.
Twenty years later, four-and-a-half years sober, fifty pounds heavier (even the dog was overweight) I needed to get moving or my brain was going to combust. Voila! I started running, and quickly discovered how much I loved the actual run, and, even more, the trail run!!!
Now I’m hooked!!!
I’m coming up on two years of running trails. I ran three ultras this year. Trail running is my passion. I love running long.
I’ve lost 45 pounds since I started. I’m still a voluptuous six foot amazon. I don’t look like a runner. I’m learning to love myself the way I am.
If I can run an ultra, so can you.
Follow my adventures as I experiment to see what works for this pokey trail runner.
