So I decided not to run the ohlone 100 mile run i do ever year and finish with the 50k. I am running out of time and in reality I have so much to do. Yes, I'm sad;( but I know in my heart I made the right choice. I don't even have time to run the 50k tomorrow. But I will show up and run the first 10 miles at 5am to check ribbions. I will then wait for the runners to pass through the first aid station. Me & Ju will go back home finish packing our resupply boxes. I hope to be back to the finish line at 3pm.
I wish all my friends good luck at the Ohlone 50k.
I got my hair braided Thursday took 8 hours. I realized after it was done they were way to thick and heavy. My braider Sydney used way to much hair. But I didn't think about it at the time. . I loved the way they looked but I knew there was no way in hell I could fastpack 2,666 miles with all the extra weight on my head. I would of been cutting the braids out the first day on the trail. Not to mention if I got them wet my head would of weighed 10 pounds ;)
So I went back yesterday for 10 hours to have them taken down and redone.
Now they are perfect.
I beleive this all happened for a reason and I was not meant to run the Ohlone 100 this year.
My higher power was telling me rest and get everything ready for the PCT. The Ohlone 100 will be waiting when I return. Yes, I plan on running it in September sometime.
