Hill Country Trivium

Hill Country Trivium 2019


I will be running another 31 mile ultra marathon this weekend. I have run the Hill Country Trivium, the hilliest course in Texas, before. I am ready to run the steep hills in this scenic course.  This will be the first time I have run a 31 mile race a week after another one. I am looking forward to the challenge of this race.

I have ran this race last year, so I am not facing the challenge of a new course. The other runners and staff are all supportive and friendly, so the atmosphere will be extremely positive. This course has the steepest hills in Texas, so that will challenge my legs. I will also need to work to maintain the same steady pace. That will be tough for the last 5 o r6 miles, because that is when I often want to speed up at the end of an ultra. As long as I can maintain the same steady pace I should finish in around 5 and a half hours.

I will give a detailed and intersting account of the race on Monday.
