About Me

Hi, I'm Whitney! I am a middle of the pack runner who discovered the fun of triathlons in 2009. Join me in my adventures in life and training. I run with the Rush Running team and enjoy the fun that comes with such a supportive group of friends who understand what running means to me. I'm newly discovering road biking and the fun that it entails.

Before and After... The long run

Our Grand Canyon training plan included a long run of 5 hours on trails a few weeks ago.  My longest run time wise prior to this was 4 hours at the War Eagle Trail Run 25k.  Distance wise my longest run was just the 25k which I had done in both a road race and trail race.

Here's are some quick pics we took before and after the run.

After- pointing towards the West and the Grand Canyon! 

The run went really well and I ended up with 19 miles covered in the 5 hours. We run/walked through out.  I snacked on Feed Zone pizza rolls which I really enjoyed. I mixed up my nutrition drink and accidentally made them way too weak thus not getting many liquid calories but staying hydrated.  Overall a great learning experience.
