–This week has been quite busy as I scale back the miles in preparation for my next fun run / trail race at Brazos Bend State Park!! As most of you who have been reading a while know, this is where I ran my 2nd 100 mile race some years back. I am thrilled to go out there and have some dirty fun and kick it with my trail running compadres.
–I’ve been enjoying using my ultra races as training building up to the Hachie 50 miler. My last 50k a few weeks ago went well, and I recovered rather quickly (thanks Normatec) so I am hoping for the same down at Brazos. All I need is a sunshine, pretty run shoes and some hydration and this ultra runner can go a very long way.
–The Texas bluebonnets are back in business baby! I love my Texas state flower. They have been popping up just about everywhere.
–It is something really special for me about running a race in the springtime. I won’t get too deep but I strongly feel a connection with running ultra miles during my birthday month. Hachie 50 is actually on my birthday weekend this year so it will be a good time. Fun running, deep talks with run buds, introspective thoughts while on foot. Yes, all about all of this.
–As my low key (but extremely high key badass) homegirl Ash recently said…
this is truly how I feel about ultras and running these days. Without a doubt it is a beautiful thing when you have something you are so passionate about that it resonates down deep in your soul. And there is not a soul in the universe that can take that joy away from you.
What is igniting your soul today? Have you had your coffee yet?!
Extra shots of espresso today are my absolute jam.
