So I finally decided to take the leap and create a blog. With the help of my fellow Janji Corps Members I decided to go with WordPress. Definitely a good decision. I will basically be using this as a gateway into my training, diet, and general thoughts throughout my training process for my 50 mile ultra marathon.
I will be doing The North Face Endurance Challenge in Utah.
Only 215 days until race day, now to some people that might sound like a lot, but when you’re trying to get in peak performance to not only run 50 miles straight but also do it at a maximum height of 10,000 ft there’s something to be said for patience when it comes to training.
I would say today was my first real leap into the training I would like to do regularly. I started out the day with a 6 mile run (on a treadmill, no way in hell I’m going to even attempt to run in Boston with this crazy weather right now) then hit up a spin class and did an extra 3 miles. My ultimate game plan is to add 10 miles per month so by the time the race rolls around I will be more than comfortable with the distance aspect.
Luckily I have the support of not only my friends and family but also my coworkers and fellow Janji Corps Members which is amazing. It’s like a never ending support net, few people are that lucky. The vegan community also has my back because I will be doing my training 100% vegan. I actually got extremely lucky and found some Odwalla bars that are vegan which is a perfect source of protein for my training!

Well I think that’s enough rambling for me today. There’s plenty more where this came from amigos. Good night and may tomorrow bring light feet.
