The Missoula Marathon – Preparation Continues!

Entering a Fun Race to Get Ready for The Missoula Marathon!

 As many of you know, I’m entering the Missoula Marathon for the first time as a Half-Marathon runner. This great race has been around for a long time, and as a local, Montana resident, it will be so nice to actually be a participant.

Enjoy Montana

Due to healing my broken wrist and the snow and ice outside, I’ve spent the last, few months training inside with the Jeff Galloway method. This involves a lot of weight training and stretching.

But now, the weather is getting warmer, and it’s great to run outside… and increase my training level.

Enter the encouragement of my Montana friends.

Get ready for The Missoula Marathon!Since many of my friends know I’m not a runner, they are providing a lot of support. And, we’ve all decided to take part in a fun run to help prepare for the Missoula Marathon… the RC Mudders for Conservation in Ravalli County, Montana!

It’s the first time this run has taken place, and the proceeds help with conservation education efforts in the local community. These include “educational materials, outreach activities, classes, and grants that pertain to wildlife, soils, water, forestry, and of course noxious weeds.”

But, more important, this run is going to be a lot of fun for the entire family!

Basically, adults run through a 5K course where you go under and over all kinds of obstacles and run through muddy areas. Kids 10 and under can participate in the “Munchkin Obstacle Course” which includes 10 different courses.

The Ravalli County Weed district who is putting on the race is encouraging participants to where costumes and avoid wearing loose items that can get lost. I know I’m going to wear older clothes that I don’t mind getting dirty!

The race takes place on June 16th so I have some training to do in advance to get ready. The cost is currently $45.00 for adults and $15.00 for kids. When you register, you’ll get an event t-shirt, medal and wrist band. You can check out all of the specifics here.

This is a great, local event that helps the community.

Plus, it will help me get ready for the big, Missoula Marathon.
