Like my training runs I like to start slow; in this case it's been a crawl. So I guess I better get my Headlands race report up. It was a wonderful experience but I had to take some time off after the race to regroup mentally more than anything else.
Don't get me wrong, I've been running. But without a formal goal in mind it's been freeing; a vacation of sorts. I have been focusing on running fast and easy - getting back to that feeling that got me hooked on trail running to begin with.
My "vacation" couldn't have come at a better time. I've been asked to join Team Traverse Trail Running. I know that some will question my decision and the team in general. But I do believe the motives of the team are good and direction Brad and Josue are taking it will benefit the trail scene in central Texas in many ways. I have promised myself not to let it get to my head. I support the team and our actions will prove themselves. Hopefully we will do well in races but more importantly I hope we are able to help give back to trail running and the communities who graciously allow us practice our sport.
That being said, I have to make some decisions soon regarding my plans for this winter/spring season. Fuego y Agua is weighing on my mind but I've got to make sure it fits in with the family and work plans. Plus if I do it, I don't have long to get ready for 100k with 2 3,000' climbs.
Well that's what's on my mind... next up... Headlands 100 race report.
