Haven't...

posted anything for a while...so even though I'm wiped out this eve...a few notables...

I've decided to run the Barr Trail Mountain Race again after two severe competitive thoughts on trail runs within the past week. Could I beat my time from last year? So, since the race is 2 weeks away, this past Sunday I figured a trip up to Barr would be a good idea...maybe to help with confidence in my footing? (Staci's idea) :) Well...it was just as painful and frustrating as I remember it. Oh well. A couple Sundays from now I will be in pain, and a salty mess...but it will be fun to be with so many great people and I will indeed be ready to push myself!

The pics below are from the Garden 10 mile race. Like I said in the last sentence above...Summer race season is great because it brings so many amazing people together for one (or many) event. It's fun hearing and watching people go through weeks of training...in and out of the store for various things...and then being able to see them finally reach their goals. This really does help to keep me motivated to continue to push myself past what I think I can achieve running wise. Speaking of motivation...off to bed...a run early in the am before work and on tired legs...ugh...I mean, yay!

Oh, I wish I could be there to cheer for you from Steve's deck on Ruxton. :(
