The Race that Wasn’t

I was really looking forward the first annual Wolff Sports 85K Trail Ultra on August 23rd, but sometimes life gets in the way and other things become more important than running a race. I won’t elaborate, but let’s just say it was more important that I stay home that weekend. In any case I am looking forward to running the event next year on August 15th.

I have been continuing my training, shifting from training for a long trail race to running a marathon, namely the Adirondack Marathon in Schroon Lake, New York on September 28th. The course should be quite beautiful, especially if the Adirondack region is in it’s Autumn splendor. I don’t have any specific goal for the race, I am flying over from Germany just two days before the race, so may have to deal with some jet lag, but its a course to enjoy, so I won’t be in any hurry anyway.
