I wrote the point form version of my race recap yesterday, and while it was easier to organize and cut my race down into sections, it really didn’t fulfill my need to blog. The reason I blog first and foremost, is to work through the emotions of an experience and grow as a person. Secondly, is to inspire others to realize they can do so much more than they think they can. Thirdly, is about my experiences helping others. What works for me won’t work for everyone else, but it can provide ideas, insight, and can help others with their own preparations or races. While point form was easy and concise, it just isn’t me, and such a big experience deserves a novel long blog post.
So, grab yourself a coffee, and have a read on my experience running my first 50Miler, The North Face Endurance Challenge, San Francisco Goretex 50 Mile race. Yep, that’s a mouthful of a race name.
