Antelope Canyon 50 mile Race Report - My Motivation

Options
Hi All!! I just wanted to share with you my amazing experience last weekend. I lost 120 lbs and have been able to do and see things I never thought possible because of it. Any of you out there interested in running an ultra marathon one day should keep this one in mind. It was amazing, beautiful, terribly difficult, and awesome!

    Thank you @sundog10, I still enjoy marathons but I've got some scenic ultras lined up that I'm looking forward to as well.

    Thank you @rodarose. This area was extremely beautiful. It's was in Navajo land, so I'm grateful they allowed the race director to hold this race there.

    That's amazing, well done! You should be so very proud.

    I had the pleasure of walking through Antelope Canyon in 2013, and it was breathtaking, as was the surrounding area.

    It is gorgeous in there! It was still a bit dark when I went through there so the photos I took on my phone didn't turn out too great but I agree, it was breathtaking.
