Jesse had been scheming earlier this week, asking me if I wanted to run a race in an undisclosed location during the first weekend in October. He gave me few hints but told me I hadn’t been there before; once I was rejected from the Nike Women’s Half Marathon raffle, I decided to pester him for details.
Jesse and I are going to Park City, Utah, for Utah’s inaugural North Face Endurance Challenge! I’m so excited – I’ve never been to Utah (or any of the Rocky Mountain states, for that matter) and can’t wait to run this half marathon on October 5th in gorgeous Park City. Although the 7,000-foot elevation looks a little daunting for breathing purposes, I’m so excited to go on a mini race vacation (and not have to take any time off of work)!
As you know, we’re big fans of the North Face Endurance Challenge Championship course in the Marin Headlands. We’re excited to see how Park City’s course stacks up!
