This past Saturday I was supposed to become an official ultra runner by running around 31 miles at the Greenland 50K but instead I ran almost 16 miles on a very hilly trail and called it a day.
|I ripped a hole in my foot and didn't finish the 50K but I did get this sweet pic!|
Overall this race is really nice. The course is beautiful but a real kick in the butt. There is probably a reason that the majority of racers are local....they can breathe. The race is well organized and I hope to be back next year for a race titled- Bean's 50K redemption. New shoes will not be worn.
While I am disappointed I am not an official ultra runner yet (plans in the works on that one) I did enjoy the time I was out there and got to do lots of other fun stuff here in Colorado.

I love Colorado and had a ton of fun but I am excited to return to my Georgia peeps and other upcoming adventures!! Thanks to everyone for their well wishes and support on my 50K attempt. I am going to keep them on hand for my next ultra attempt!
