Now that fall is here, I am looking forward to getting back out on the trails more.

Last fall and winter, I put more of a focus on trail running in preparation for the spring trail series that I ran earlier this year. I don’t have plans to run that series again at this point, but I do have some reasons to once again put more of a focus on trails these next few months.
For the third time, I will be joining Debbie and her awesome group for a Ragnar relay. And for the second time, it will be a trail relay! This time the relay will be in late April in Richmond. Why am I already starting to think about training on trails for this event? Because this time I have somehow been convinced to run the relay on an ultra team. (Okay, basically Debbie suggested it and I immediately agreed. There was no real convincing involved.)
This means that the team will be made up of four people, instead of eight, covering the same distance. I’m not even exactly sure what the logistics are for such a thing. But I know that I am both scared and excited to take on this challenge! Also, fingers crossed it doesn’t rain like last time.
What are you looking forward to this winter?
Do you have any big goals/plans for 2016 yet?
