so what is my motivation today?
Peaks to Prairie!
It is an adventure race that isn't until April, but I get to do it for the first time this year. There is an 8.8 mile run portion, a 43 mile cycling leg, and a 23 mile paddling leg down the Yellowstone River. No, I am not doing all three, but I am doing the run leg!
Here is what the website says about the race
Looking for some adventure to add life to your Spring training regimen? Or how about a challenge to take on with some good friends? Look no further than Peaks to Prairie, a unique Montana challenge that spans from the heights of the Beartooth Mountains to the open majesty of the Yellowstone River.
Registration isn't open yet and they haven't even set the date, but usually it is the third weekend in April. Being a part of a team makes me feel even more pressure to perform well and run fast! Makes me nervous even thinking about it.
The run leg drops about 900 feet over the length of the run, but I have heard this is a little deceptive as there are some pretty good hills in it as well.
Here is the map from a previous year. The course will be the same this year.
So my team better be committed for it this year. I want to do it really bad! Should be so much fun.
