Wellington Urban Ultra

Two weeks ago, with minimal training, I completed my first ultra marathon. 63kms and over 3km of vertical. The race took me around Wellingtons beautiful trail network. It is amazing to have these trails so close to home.
It was the first running of the event and it went off without a hitch. The whole race atmosphere was great and was so well organised. I hauled my sore ass over the finish line in 8hrs. My quads are still a bit sore, probably thanks to the lack of stretching and/or training.

Now thats over I'm looking forward to some lower mileage training runs and getting back into some enjoyable lunchtime runs. Something that will let me run daily without feeling broken all the time :-)

I think the next ultra will be a bit longer and a lot flatter :-)
