2017 UltraLadies Spring/Summer Program

February 19, 2017

 

Welcome Ultra Ladies 2017

Thank you for bringing us into our 23rd year! Without you this would not be possible.  

 

If you are reading this, you might have at one point in our 23 years, run with the UltraLadies, at least once and wed like to share with you some our new happenings!

 

As you know, Nancy has been providing UltraLadies with training at no cost, until this point. No one knows better than yourselves, how valuable her years of Ultra Running experience has meant and many you have stories about how her training has made you successful at reaching your goals.  Im interested in hearing these stories in the coming weeks.  

 

We are asking that you invest in us this year so we can bring you even more coaching and beautiful running experiences.

 

When Nancy planted this seed in my head about joining as your Event Director, it went from seed to sequoia in about 20 minutes… on a trail, of course! Hahaha Our business plans meshed seamlessly and we are anxious to share them with you. We have so many beautiful places, distances and finish lines to share with you!

 

I have been fortunate to finish many Ultra distances and have experienced first hand the benefits that trail running brings for on and off the trail. And what I’ve learned is my success’ would not be a success without our community of Ultra Runners surrounding me every step of the way. You have a very tight knit community that supports you and and I look forward to introducing you to your first Ultra or simply introduce you to a new trail.

 

It’s not that you can’t do an Ultra without training but how many mistakes are you willing to make, how many dnf(s) (Did not finish) are you willing to encounter, how much down time from injuries are you willing to sit out, how many times will you get lost on a trail and how many finish lines are you going to cross without your friends there to support you?

 

Look at these awesome benefits:

 

• Follow a proven training plan for the 50K

• Weekly training with the UltraLadies

• Ultra Ladies technical running shirt

~ ARROWS: Trails will be marked with minimal flour arrows. You will follow the same arrows out and back. There is no guarantee that you wont get lost. Hikers

may erase the marks; other running clubs mark their own arrows also; fatigue may cause you to miss an arrow. Pay attention to landmarks to avoid getting lost or better yet, carry your own bottle of flour and make your own arrows (seriously)!

 

Remember, if you want to follow our arrows, you should stay behind the arrow marker.

 

~ RUNNING IN THE HEAT: There is a lot of concern being expressed about running a 50K in August. Actually, running a half marathon in June can be more problematic than running a 50K in August because our "June gloom" weather doesnt adequately prepare us to run when the temperature suddenly spikes into the 90s on race day. As the weather warms up, we will be running in the heat and the best way to handle running in the heat is through gradual exposure to the heat. The more you gradually expose yourself to heat, the more your body will begin to sweat for cooling but at the same time will spare electrolytes. Be aware to carry enough fluids including hypertonic fluids (with electrolytes added). Wear a shade hat and light colored clothes and use water stops to wet your clothing. Overall, when running in the heat, be aware to slow your pace down to keep your engine running easy. If you have access to a sauna, it will help you become heat acclimatized; just spend a little time in the sauna each day.

 

~ RATTLESNAKE ENCOUNTERS: As we are well into rattlesnake season, it is good to review what to do if you encounter a snake. Be aware that in the cool hours of morning and evening, snakes may be sunning themselves. In the hot hours of the day, snakes tend to avoid direct sunlight and may be resting under rocks, logs, bushes, or even in shady sections of fire roads and trails. Note to self: when running on fire roads, especially keep an eye out when running through shade.

 

What to do if you encounter a rattlesnake on the trail? First, keep a wide distance. A snake that is not coiled generally wont strike so you can usually safely walk around the snake keeping a distance of about 5-feet between you and the snake. Uncoiled snakes can often be enticed to move along by giving a couple of squirts at the snakes tail from your water bottle, from a safe distance away. Never throw stones at a rattle snake; this always going to aggravate the snake. A snake that is coiled, rattling, or has its head lifted off the ground is capable of striking. Snakes are known to be able to strike to a distance of about ½ of its overall length. On a wide fire road, you can usually safely pass around the snake however on a narrow trail, It is always best to leave the snake alone and find another route or just wait it out.

Happy trails,
