Run 50 miles? All in a row. In one very long day. Funny, right?
I thought so too, but for some reason, I decided that I had to try an ultra one time and what better place than the trails in my backyard.
In early May, I will be tackling Rock The Ridge, a 50-mile endurance challenge in the Shawangunk Mountains.
Rock The Ridge supports a great cause.
This event supports Mohonk Preserve’s mission to protect the Shawangunk Mountains region and inspire people to care for, enjoy, and explore their natural world. With over 8,000 acres of mountain ridges, forests, fields, streams, ponds, and other unique and beautiful places, Mohonk Preserve is the largest member and visitor-supported nature preserve in New York State. It is where Glenn and I met and got married, and it will always feel like home.
Since 2013, Ridge Rockers have collectively raised over $1,800,000 to support Mohonk Preserve’s award-winning conservation science, environmental education, land protection, and stewardship programs. Let’s keep that number moving up! I've already started training, so I decided to get started fundraising too. Thanks in advance for any amount you are able to contribute!
