Just wanted to share my accomplishments with you all!! I have been training for a marathon since June. My training plan called for a 2:50 min run or a 4 hour hike(time on your feet) I decided to sign up for Surf the Murph Trail run, the 25k. I have NOT trained for trails, a few runs on a golf course in my back yard to get used to my trail shoes. SERIOUS KUDOS to the strength plans in RunSmart !!!
