I’ve just capped a 90+ mile week for the first time since last spring. What joy to have the time and health to put in miles!
Since my last post George and I have been to NY and back for Christmas and while I was away, my laptop was also traveling to CA to have the screen replaced. Yet now everyone is back at home and communications resume!
My life has been full and head full of thoughts too, yet I shall keep this post uncharacteristically brief!
George and I have been working on updating the New River Trail 50k website. It’s slowly getting there! Registration will be online this year opening on January 20, yet not with Active.com, but with a different company called UltraSignup.com. It will cost less for runners and offers some great features ultrarunners will especially appreciate.
I am also working on updating my blog. As always it is a work in progress, and as much as I loved my old “jumping in the Gorge” header photo, I moved it to the bottom of the blog to make room for the photo above taken in Doughton Park in March of 2009 during one of our fun adventure runs. It was simply time for a change!
I will be running with Montrail again next year and look forward to the shoes and races and working with the company as it continues to stabilize after a few years of difficult adjustment. The Montrail blog has moved and is now located Here.
At the end of next week, I’ll be traveling to the Bandera 100k in Texas. The terrain is supposed to be quite tough and technical-I think it will be fun! While in college I worked on a Dude Ranch in Bandera TX and used to take long walks in the Hill Country State Natural Area where the race is being held.
Go outside in the cold, the rain, the ice, run hard and eat good food! Spend time with loved ones! Feed the birds and play with the cat! (Sometimes even stay under the covers!) Have fabulous experiences and then some!
