Aktualisiert: 3. Apr. 2022
Chiemgau Trail Run - 21km, 1300hm
Wow… What an experience!
About five weeks ago, on the train from Trieste to Venice, I randomly decided to sign up for a half marathon trail run race…little did I know that the half marathon I chose was part of the Salomon World Cup Series "Golden Trail Series"….Oh, well.
The week before the race, I felt extremely nervous, doubting my body and myself.
"Can I even run that far and that high?"
Well…it turned out:
It was tough- physically, and mentally- but I am grateful for the experience of having run this race.
During the race, I kept thinking about how proud I am of my body for letting me be part of this, running through mountains, up trails, and down steep roads in the mountains I grew up close by.
Trailrunning has already challenged me in so many ways during the last months, and keeps challenging me… I am curious to see where it is going to take me.
