Inspiration to go for that 50 miler! - Video

The American River 50 miler race is touted to be a great "first 50" but I had reservations because it's so flat and has so much bike path... however, this video draws me to it because it looks like such a well organized and supported event.  There's definitely something to say for crowd support.  And not to mention that there are so many first timers, there must be support in the air...

So it's got me thinking about next year!.... LET'S GO!

A Reminder...

A well written post that touches on thoughts I grapple with in regards to these recent events... I've spent many hours running on these very trails.  And was recently longing to head over for more exploration... because there is a peace I find on trails... but there are also dangers.  Dangers, to a certain extent, are always present... where do we find that balance ....

"Fear is also a thief. It steals the present moment from us, snatches away our ability to feel that comfort and joy. And it was threatening to steal my most sacred place."

Darkness: how ultrarunning can strip away our emotional barriers

Inspiration Video - Lake Sonoma 50 Mile

This race is described as "relentless" and probably NOT a good first 50 miler... but it sure does call to me....

I must also mention what an awesome job JourneyFilm does.  Always.
