There’s No Place Like…

… the Bay Area in February apparently. This “winter” (if it can even be called that) has been incredible.  Although we really, really need the rain (we have had the driest couple months in a long time after the craziness that was December 1st), it’s been so nice to run around on dry trails through […]

Wednesday I turned 50k years old.  Normally I don’t refer to my age in kilometers, but this year it seems appropriate.  To kick off the year of the 50k, I took a vacation day from work and headed to Marin with Chris to show him around Muir Woods and Mt. Tam.  It was another incredibly […]

To The Top, Again

Back in February, I took my friend Kerry to the top of Mt. Diablo as part of her Bay Area Bucket list.  I hadn’t been back to the summit since that day, mostly because I was training for AR50, then recovering from it.  It’s a pretty tough run, so I never wanted to risk being […]

Before, During, After

Before… Brand new pretty gore-tex shoes being tested for the first time (and little did I know how tested they would be!). During… A reward of beautiful views of the CA coastline after climbing some messy muddy hilly trails. A visit to the magical Muir Woods.   All on a preview of the North Face […]

To The Top

My good friend Kerry is sadly moving away in a couple of months, but the awesome part is she has created a “Bay Area Bucket List” of things she wants to do and see before she leaves.  She has been checking them off left and right and I was lucky enough to get to join […]

Longest Run {Yet}

Today I ran 28 miles, which is the furthest I have ever ran.  For now. It was anything but easy. I have every other Friday off work which is making ultra-training life so much easier with these crazy back to back long runs.  It gives me an extra day to actually have somewhat of a […]

I have to admit that after yesterday’s 24 mile run, I was a little intimidated about going out and running long again. 18 miles long. Actually 18 hilly trail miles long. There were most definitely points in yesterday’s run where I highly questioned my ability to run 50 miles on April 7th. 24 miles felt […]

Today I had 14-15 miles to run on trails.   Today I really wanted to run farther, but I was a good girl and listened to my training plan that said this week is a cutback week even though I wanted to ignore it. Today I met up with my friend Jojo to run in the […]

Weekly Recap: A Week of Trotting

What a fun week of running!  This is seriously the best time of year to run, I can’t get enough.  This week was pretty much overcome with Turkey Trots, well at least the weekend was, so a week of trotting it is!  I was pretty much able to hit all my base building goals this […]

A Glimpse of What’s to Come

Since registering for my next big adventure, I have been reading up a lot on how exactly one trains for a 50 mile run.  Pretty much the main thing I have taken away from anything I read is back to back long runs is the best way to prepare.  Back to back long runs?  Count […]
