If you are anything like me, the though of a 27 mile training run doesn’t elicit fanfare and cheers. When that dreaded “27 miler” came up on the schedule, I looked for a different way to get in the miles. What better way is there to train for the marathon distance than to run a marathon? To add some variety, and a bit more challenge, I found a trail marathon that was close to home. Since I had never run at over a mile high, or run a marathon in the dirt, this was going to be an adventure!
