It’s that time of the year again: time to start ramping up for the summer running season! After a wild year of big races in 2016, and a wedding to plan this summer, I’m keeping my commitments to a comfortable minimum.
I’m psyched to switch it up this year and participate in the Anchorage Mayor’s Marathon on a relay team – Team Salmon Run! With friends Emily, Jess and Jocelyn we’ll divide the four legs of the marathon and have way more fun than slogging through 26.2 alone (trust me, I know).
Our four runners are taking inspiration from four salmon species: dog, silver, king and pink. I’m pink salmon – wardrobe is already ready.
To get ourselves motivated and to start building that team spirit, we went out for an easy 2 mile run Saturday morning through the APU/Goose Lake trails in Anchorage. I love spring training.
