More running needed

I have come to the realization that if I am going to properly train for this 40 miler I am going to have to get out of my comfort zone.  On Saturday, I ran 3 miles in a new trail near my husband’s favorite local climbing spot.  It was pretty technical and there were leaves everywhere.  So needless to say, there was some tripping but luckily no falling.  I convinced myself to play it safe and repeat a loop several times instead of venturing out and running the 5 mile loop I had intended to complete.  Admittedly I was intimidated.  I was running without a phone on a new trail alone and I had just dropped off my husband and sons at a climbing spot a mile away so if something were to happen to me, they would be left without a car or a mom.  I felt like a wimp.  But now that I am writing this on,  I know I did the right thing.  I just need to plan better and get my phone fixed.  Now that I know where the trail is and what it looks like, I can plan better.  So I am excited to get out there and finish what I started.  I am not really sure how I am going to go from conquering a 5 mile trail to a 40 mile trail but we will see.  It made me feel a bit better that I had to hike to meet the family at the boulders so I did get another two miles in and check out this dope picture I got a the end:

Tomorrow’s election day people.  I am excited to have this craziness over and hopefully welcome the first woman President.  Now that would be dope.

Happy Monday!
