First ultra of the year done at #traildupetitballon :) It was pretty tough out there with freshly fallen snow all over the 55km race course and temperatures below freezing point. I was excited to race even though I almost had to pull out last minute due to a stomach virus that forced me to bed a couple of days before the race. “Well, at least I can give it a try“, I thought. I started fast as if I were in my best shape but soon had to realise that my body was weakened by the sickness. On the uphills I almost died ;) The long climb up to the Petit Ballon was a real fight. Surprisingly, the last 20km of downhill and rolling hills felt super good. Suddenly I was flying towards the finish line, consistently overtaking. After over six hours of racing I happily crossed the finish line as 9th female. Next up are the Swiss champs in June at #scenictrail ! Getting a bit nervous about #swisstrailtour as well considering my sore muscles today. How am I supposed to run like this three days in a row? ;) #timetoplay #salomon #bächlibergsport #salomonrunning #runnergirl #trails #als#alsaceoncourrant #alsace #runfar #runnersofinstagram #trailrunning #optoutside #outsideisfree #outsideisfreezing #dreambig #becourageous #runfast #eatsleeprunrepeat

Took advantage of this beautiful sunny day. My little buddy took me for a walk at one of Cambria's scenic trails.
