Okay, so I thought long and hard about this one and well, here goes. I need a redemption race. I know I can do this distance (50K that is) so I need to prove to myself that I can finish and finish strong. I talked with many of my friends who are more seasoned runners and they all said GO FOR IT! I also consulted with my coach and chiro. Well, my coach was supportive and I think my Chiro's words were something along the lines of you are crazy, but I think i prompted him to call me crazy, so there is that.
This was the original race I wanted to do, but it didn't fit into both Mel and I's schedule. I have decided to give the 50K distance a second chance and try this race. It was a bit pricey to enter late, but I just can't end this year without a success in this distance that I have trained so hard for! 50K take two!!!!
