–Well I am back and celebrating a glorious birthday week! I’ve still been in recovery and restoration mode after my last ultra race. So taking time off from work this week could not have come at a better time. Cheers to good times with friends and family. Plus beautiful patio weather down in Texas in the spring time.
–For those of you who have been keeping up – the wonderful race directors over at the Hachie 50 miler so graciously let me defer my race entry to next year!! I ended up having some personal life stress things that I desperately needed to tend to. So everything really worked out in my favor and I am so glad I will get to run Hachie FOR FREE next year. They even sent me a shirt in the mail.
–We make plans sometimes, and often times God laughs. I am so thankful as I get older I have learned to truly roll with the punches of life. And really be at peace with the decisions that I make regardless of how it looks but how things truly benefit me and make me feel. Races will always be there…and some days you just have to let go…and let flow.
–I really go through chapters of my life with running, and I see ultras as a really personal thing as opposed to something I do to be uber competitive with others. I truly come out of running a lot of these races with a lot of introspection about myself and that in itself can be a beautiful thing.
–I am glad I got to run this 50k and then this 50k trail race right after. 2022 has been a great year of racing comebacks for me. And teaching lots of classes at Life Time. I am just happy I am still able to do all of the things I love without injury and do them quite well.
–The birthday staycation was fun though this year. I got to have my drink with my umbrella in it and cherries on top. Family and friends and good times were had with the people I adore most.
–I do think another mini vacation is due in the yellow Jeep! I may have to make another trip down to the beach or some fun Texas destinations. Maybe I’ll throw another trail race in there at some point.
Feel free to rant/rave/share how your week is going?
We are so close to the weekend I can taste it. I think we will have some good running weather too.
