Dianna 's thoughts:

Yes, sometimes the best surprises come in small packages!

What started off today as an ordinary Monday quickly turned into not just a pleasant surprise but signified a moment that quite literally has changed my life……….I received my medal from my very 1st trail race, the Bernheim Half Marathon Trail Race in Louisville which I ran/walked/climbed/cursed and loved on June 1st.

What’s a city girl like me doing driving 5 hours from Chicago to Louisville to run in the woods?

It was about the adventure of the spirit, the belief in myself and the challenge of a lifetime for this runner girl.

Trail running? Oh yeah…there is nothing like it! Cannot compare to road racing! Apple & oranges, my friends!

To tackle a mountain by this girl from (flat!) Illinois, no less! Oh yes, yes I did!

Ever ran or at least walked up a mountain? No.

Ever ran on a trail? No.

But I have now!

The serenity of trail running is like no other. Relying on your instincts to pull yourself up that incredibly steep incline while your quads & calves are screaming is hard to describe. Never giving up & pushing yourself forward gives you a sense of accomplishment. It gives you the confidence to tackle your next big running adventure.

Quite simply, the hardest thing I have ever done.

I would do it again.

Or, read on my blog post:

**Note: This race was not only a Half Marathon, but a Full Marathon as well. Try it if you dare!!!
