It was my first race (road or trail) so there was an abundance of incredible memories for me. However it would have to be meeting the incredible people who’ve inspired me on my running journey over the past year and seeing Dora’s idea, come to life, bringing uncontrollable joy to so many people was beautiful.
Because I believe in the work that people like Dora are doing to make running both on road and trail more diverse, opening up a world to everyone. I’m new to trail running so my first race had to be special and it truly was in every way possible.
In late Feb 2020. I finally stopped listening to the negative people and laced up and started to run. Instead of listening to the “you wont” I started using the mantra “I can”…. Then I ran consistently for a year and can’t imagine life without running! Now it’s a source of inspiration to others and therefore one of the proudest things I have done.
The freedom, the escape, the variety of choosing a route depending on your mood and also knowing I can do tough things, but most of all the love of the community.
