Starting Wednesday, I'll be taking on the first two. Sacramento offers little in the way of elevation, but we sit in a valley where the foothills and mountains are within driving distance. As with the half marathon, I'll be participating in a Fleet Feet training group, this time for trail running.

Clearly, we're meant to be.
The training takes place over three months focusing on two races, Blood, Sweat and Beers (had me at beer) and Run on the Sly. Some of my former hiking trails will now be where I spend my weekends running. Summer Saturday nights may be more low key than years past, but in the end, fingers crossed, I'll have the confidence to take on the hills of the Death course.
P.S. I never thought I'd be wearing North Face on my feet. Hoping these shoes do the trick and I don't have to go through three pairs to find the right one like I did for the road!
