2021 URE Marathon

 





Yep...  I pulled the trigger on this one after the Uwharrie 40 miler I was going to sign up on November 1st was put on hold...  That race will likely still happen in February but this is scheduled for Saturday March 13th 2021.  As with most life events for me, I need things in my schedule to at least stay focused.  Okay,  this has not been true either.  I have really fallen short of needed training several times in the last 5 years and have been lucky most of those times to cross those finish lines.  My time clock is sort of ticking so it's time for me to get more serious again.  Let's do this!





I decided to sign up for this virtual challenge.  It had various challenges of different distances to complete in the month of January.  I may have chose more than I can handle when I decided on the 150 mile challenge which you can easily do the math to realize that's a 5 mile a day average.  I knew January was a terrible month for me to stay motivated so this would definitely help as I hate to throw money out the door and I'm a sucker for challenges.  But first, I need to get in shape in December so I can.  Oh my...













Just an update... I'm struggling and way behind pace but hoping to double up mileage without injuries...  hopefully I won't need an ultra my last few days to survive this challenge!



In January I basically did a half marathon every Saturday...
