I will be doing the Freak 50K at Run! Woodstock on September 6th! I’m both excited and nervous! I ran 14 miles on Saturday on trails with some friends and it was GREAT! I honestly loved every step of every mile.. EVEN the steps that were walking instead of running!

I think it’s safe to say that I LOVE trail running! (I think I’ve decided that when I buy a house one requirement is that it needs to be within 30 minutes of some trails!) So after enjoying the 14 miles on the trails I decided that it was time to fully commit to my training. As you know, I’ve been ‘excel committed’ for a few weeks, but now I’m officially committed!

SO it’s officially! I’ll officially be an ultra runner come September!! ❤ ❤

Seeing as I didn’t pick my packet up on Friday, I’ll be venturing early in the morning to pick up my packet before the start of the race.

Since I start my race at 8:45am, I plan on getting to Ford Field Park around 7:30am. Giving me a solid 1 hr and 15 minutes to pick up my packet and use the bathroom. Luckily since the Half starts 45 minutes after the 10k and 5k, I’m hoping that the bathroom line won’t be TOO long!

For once I’m actually running this race with a few friends! Planning on carpooling so that I’m not there alone! Check out the route!
