Day 51!!!

well we got through 50K on saturday and ran 5 at Jerry’s Peachbud last night. it was a good weekend! the weather was a bit on the warm side on saturday but certainly not as warm as it has been in the past! the course is great and my only criticism is that if you increase your registration to over 600 people you might want to provide more than 5 port-a-potties, staggered start or not. just sayin’…. glad i didn’t have to go when i got back at the end of the race! a friend mentioned that she didn’t know how i could look so fresh at the end of the race and then, an hour later after i had been sitting down, look like such shit! hahaha! that’s the nature of the beast!

i tried a new type of nutrition on race day ( I know, I know, NEVER do anything new on race day, but….) and it worked pretty well….. did not manage to keep with my plan to not eat after 6 the night before so still ended up visiting a few facilities up until the half way point. still working on the digestive logistics!!!!

i managed to run 5K with our clinic on Monday night and walked a lot yesterday as well as the race so we’re on the road to recovery. plan on running a bit of trail today as the next race (the Limber Lost Challenge 56K) promises to be a challenging one. onward and upward!!!
