Now that the weather around Las Vegas has become more tolerable it’s the perfect time for camping, so last weekend my boyfriend and I traveled to Valley of Fire to do some hiking and sleep under the stars. Early Saturday morning we loaded the car (dog included) and headed to the park. We would be meeting up with friends later but after hearing that the campground fills up fast this time of year we decided to go early and increase our chance at get a site.
Saturday I completed my first ever obstacle course race. I had wanted to do a Dirty Dash for a few years but never committed to doing it so when I saw that Terrain Racing was coming to town I decided to pull the trigger and sign up. I had never heard of the organization but the registration was pretty inexpensive for this type of race so I took the risk (Tip: when you register they have a countdown to when the price will increase…I registered in April and despite the counter the price never went up before race day, so don’t feel pressured to rush into it!).
This past weekend was the inaugural Ultra Santa Fe trail race, held in the Santa Fe National Forest of New Mexico. The race included four distances: 50 mile, 50 kilometer, 13 mile, and an uphill 1 mile.
