I decided to document my trial hike/run of the Mid Mountain marathon course that I did over the weekend.
This is quickly becoming a journey of pushing my limits. Never before would I entertained the idea of doing a marathon, especially in the mountains, until I broke past the 20-mile distance hiking in Whistler two weeks back.
The irony is that for years in private practice, I looked up to the athletes I treated...the ultramarathoners...the triathletes. I wanted to be like them.
I loved hearing their stories of pushing their limits on resilience, pain, and tenacity with every race.
Now I find myself here, at the same place they are, purely by making a choice to pursue it.
I know my decision to do a marathon a week prior to the event is a bit mad, but that's also where I see the fun in the challenge. I want to see what limits my body and, most important, my mind can overcome.
Here's a sneak peek of my journey leading up the big event.
