First Race this Season -- Sycamore Canyon 50k
I finally pulled the trigger and signed up for my first race this season -- the Sycamore Canyon 50k at the western edge of the Santa Monica Mountains. Total elevation gain and loss is 8,055’ so this should be a good primer for the big show coming in June. Unless something comes up I’m also planning on running Leona Divide 50 mile and at least one other 50 mile “prep” race in May. I guess this means it’s time to start getting serious again. No more relaxing weekends! I just hope the rain subsides in the coming weeks so I can get back out on those trails!
