The last few weeks of training have gone well; I have been doing regular track workouts again since January and increased my trail running (and hill climbing!) distances again. I'd say I'm where I want to be for now, and if things don't work out I have the Eugene Half on May 10 for another shot this spring.
The majority of my training runs for this event have been with the Go Far run group, which I'm loving. I have always been a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to run groups (am I good enough? Can I keep up?), but this is no longer true! Everyone is very welcoming and my fears were completely unfounded. I've loved having the support, advice, pace buddies, and challenging group track workouts to keep me going.
