Feeling The ‘Spring’ In My Step

So May 30th is the Blackfoot Ultra, in which I am registered for the 50km distance. In the last couple of weeks I’ve endeavored to pick up my training, which was slow to start due to ski season (skiing took precedence on most weekends). Now, due to inconsistent race training, I’m a little concerned about how well race day is going to go. My last couple of training runs have felt quite good. However, I just haven’t been able to log the kind of mileage that is necessary to perform well at an ultra-distance race. I’m still going to run my ass off and I anticipate that I should be more than capable of finishing the race.

Now, with that, here are some images from my recent trail running excursions, which is really why you came here.

Happy bagging.

I like both of these photos of me on EEOR so you will put up with seeing two near-identical shots.

What better thing to do with a Sunday than conquer a ~23km run on the Prarie View Loop via Quaite Valley.

This would be why it's called "Prairie View"
