Now, you may ask yourself why would a below sea level, slow road runner, and over weight over forty young lady like myself sign up for a trail run at 6,000 feet with real hills? What was she thinking at the time? Honestly I was thinking "That looks pretty and challenging.".
Then I hit the register button and instantly began freaking out in my mind. I remember there being a lot of panicked screaming in my head and I may have begun to sweat a little as my heart began to race. But I knew that because it scared the poo out of me I had to do it! I am also realistic and knew that I had to completely focus and get into shape.
