Nine years ago, I ran my first ultra. Now, the challenge of being a new mom is exhilarating and sometimes daunting. Our community has been essential. The need for patience is ever-present. I still love the sport. My current ultra-just looks different right now…
What I’ve come to love about the hiking lists and goals is that you can go at your own pace — or the pace your current life allows. You can spend a few months checking off summits or spread it out over decades.
For many, weekends are reserved for long training runs. I find that the weekends are also great for baking. When I decide to try a
