Race Recap – Chuckanut 30km Trail Race

On Sunday, I raced in my longest distance trail run ever, a 30 km race held in Bellingham, WA, put on by the Bellingham Trail Running Series.

I had been eye-ing this race for a while, we didn’t have anything happening this weekend, I’m always up for a states trip *cough* shopping *cough*, I’m always down to try new race venues, and I wanted to get in some more trail running before the Arc’Teryx Squamish trail half marathon (-ish, it’s maybe 23.5 kms) race on August 11.

So, we packed up, and headed to Chuckanut Bay, approx 60 mins from our front door.

Such a difference a week makes

At the beginning of last week I found myself in a really crappy place.  I was making the wrong choices in my food and workouts, and I found myself in a nasty pile of quicksand.

5 Peaks Cypress Trail Race Recap

On Saturday morning I raced in the 5 Peaks Cypress Mtn Trail Race – Enduro Course 14 kms.

It was the wettest, muddiest, wildest trail race I’ve done in a long time, and I had a blast!!!

First and foremost, I have to give some major love to 5 Peaks, not only do they run an awesome event, every single time, but their pricing is reasonable, their race souvenirs are great, and I am rarely, if ever, disappointed leaving their races.

I think it’s safe to say that, I LOVE 5 PEAKS RACES.

This Saturday was no different…
