Well, my trip to Bright for training for the Buffalo Stampede Grand Slam has come and gone! How time flies when you're having fun! It was a great weekend; the weather was warm and I had great company.
On the Saturday I started from the bridge that Morses creek goes under and ran out and back. Sunday I ran from Eurobin Creek picnic area to the top of Buffalo and back. The best thing about it was not only was I out getting some practice on the course, but I actually got to SEE the course. I have done the 75k race twice beofre, but never have I seen the beautiful views! Because I was going slower than in a race and without the single-minded focus you need, I actually saw the beautiful location. I was in total amazement!
These were just some of the beautiful sights to see. Honestly, if you've never been to Bright or Buffalo you need to get there! It is awesome!
The training was good, but I still don't feel that I am back to my old paces. I still feel a bit slow...it all takes time I guess. I have to be patient! In the meantime, I just need to enjoy the fact that I am out there in the beautiful bush that I love!
