Trail Running

My sister-in-law is trying to talk me into doing an ultra marathon trail run. Logan Peak. 28 miles across mountain peaks. 7261 feet change in elevation. Does that sound insane? I'm excited about the trail running - reduced overuse injuries, change of scenery, and an intense workout. But I'm a little nervous about the 28 miles when I haven't been training for long distances.
Have you ever tried trail running? How about an ultra marathon?


  1. WOW sounds ULTRA INTENSE...but SO WORTH it!
    Pace yourself and GO FOR IT!
    2 words...fluids and FUEL!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement and the advice. We'll see if I can get with it enough to train properly!
