It’s been unseasonably warm in Jackson Hole the last few weeks, but that hasn’t stopped the trail running. The heat adds another element to my training program, but with my handy watch, and weekly run schedule – I’m still determined to hit the trails, so much so, I am evening considering entering the Rendezvous Hill Climb race in early August. With the race as a goal – I hit the Wildflower trail on my lunch break. It was a hot run, and in order to keep my focus, I think about what is keeping me motivated this summer. And it’s a few things:
- Sharing this running story with friends, and being accountable every week with this blog.
- The fancy watch – I love it now, it keeps me on track, and logs all the great mileage and elevation I’m covering.
- Awareness that I am sticking to a program, and probably improving – even though I still feel slow.
- The scenery – you can’t beat the Jackson Hole trail system.
