Happy Tuesday, trail friends. Prior to this weekend, I could not remember the last time I ran an ultra distance. Some combination of writing a book, having a baby, and aging poorly has kept me from venturing past the 26.2 mark in recent years.
However, the inspiration I get from covering this sport has provided such a dose of weekly motivation, that I slowly but surely managed to rebuild my tattered body. And this weekend I ran from my house to the top of the highest mountain in the Northeast, a journey of 36.8 miles.
It’s my hope that in these weekly updates about our crazy sport, you too find the motivation to challenge yourself. And if so, we want to hear about it—leave a comment below and let us know what stories have inspired you the most and what adventures you’ve undertaken as a result.
