Where does this leave me? I'm happy, I haven't once said "I'm pissed that I have to work and that I can't run". I have been training for this race but having another 50k in three weeks means I'll be ok. I have become a little older and a little more mature as of late, I can always run I won't always have those special moments in life. Trail running has taught me how to enjoy the little things in life.
Moving forward I will enjoy some time on the bike this week before going back to the trails before my 50k in Massachusetts. I have plenty of work to do before the 50k so I will continue to enjoy training and more importantly I will enjoy life and a great life moment on Sunday.
