1st Place overall Female in the PCTR run Grand Prix series...
I went to the awards party this morning with Joe and Mylinh. I was first place female overall in the Grand Prix series. I will try to defend my title this year.
We did a 7+ mile ran after the party.
Tomorrow we will be running the Tellas Rock 50k, while everyone is eating crappy food and sitting in front of the T.V watching a bunch of guys tackle each other. We will be having fun running in the Ohlone wilderness.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and congrats. to all the other runners in the PCTR series.

Take all opportunities to break old habits and old patterns as this is a time of rebirth and re-invention. Sometimes patterns are hard to change so perhaps the easier way to is to discard them altogether. Certainly there will be mini-endings and beginnings around this time, so don’t hold onto the past, allow new situations to be drawn to you and to flourish. Evolution, like the passage of time, is not within our control. So go with the flow and allow yourself to be guided.

Congrats on 1st place! BTW, sitting in front of the TV eating crappy(?) food and watching a bunch of guys tackle each other is more fun than you make it sound. I plan on getting 15 miles in on the AT before I plop my behind on the couch. And my food will not be crappy!

Good luck at Tellas Rock.

Congratulations on your award. You deserve it.

Are those Inov8 Flyrocks you are wearing? If so, I'd like your opinion of them. I own a pair (one of many models I own) but am afraid to use them on a long run.

i'm going for a nice long run, then am going to sit on the couch, eat some good food and enjoy the football game. i'm not going to worry about what others are doing.
