Random Thoughts Thursday.

So my very 1st trail race of 2020 is this Saturday! I am equal parts nervous and excited, y’all! It should definitely be a good one!! East Texas, tall piney trees, heaven. It is a woodsy wonderland for sure.

However I’ve definitely been feeling a bit taper crazy since scaling the miles back even just a bit. I did not super taper for this race (I’m also still teaching my classes at the gym) but I’m still feeling a bit cranky. Less miles = less endorphins! And the gloomy weather lately has not been helping!!! So glad the temps in East Texas should be full of bliss and sunshine. Much needed. Check out this great forecast. I mean it really is going to feel like springtime this weekend.

I bought the cutest Skechers yesterday. These will definitely more for short runs. But I think they are just too perfect especially for spring.

After my 33 mile trail race in 2 days I am thinking about signing up for some short races. The only other race on my radar right now though is the Hachie 50 miler! I keep getting distracted by ultras, y’all. I may never run a marathon again. HMMM.

I actually want to run a mardi gras race though. This one is a fave on my calendar. Colorful beads and miles are my jam.

Share your random thoughts with me today!

  1. Your ultra marathon posts always make me think about one day running the perimeter of Manhattan (where I live)! It’s about 33 miles around, so I would probably have to do it in chunks with some rest in there… maybe someday.
