NOW'S THE TIME................
And finally, I want to acknowledge that making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually, you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin. Stephen Cherniske, M.S
Andy and I had a good run at Ridgecrest 50k. I was happy to finish in under 6 hours. We finished in 5:48 if it wasn't so windy we would of had a faster time for sure.
It was really cold too.
I love running with Andy he always keeps me going when I'm having a tough time. I fell 2 miles into it so my right knee was hurting a lot of the way. This is a pretty flat course for the most part so you end up running most of it. Not like most ultras I run where you are climbing tons.
I also learned a hard lesson do not do a hard crossfit WOD like Mary two days before an ultra. Will I ever learn ;-)
I am taking it easy this week want to be really ready for Chimera 100 miler Saturday. With the weather looking bad it will be challenging ,even to the toughest of the group. Mentally you need to be ready for being comfortable with the uncomfortable.
I just need to start packing since I leave right after work at 4pm Thursday. I would love all my friends to send me those positive vibes this weekend. Oh send them to Andy too, since he's running the whole race with me and will need them.
This awesome pictures were taken by Andy Kumeda.
A special woo hoo to my friend Kellie Crowles for completing her first Ultra way to go girlie ;-) very proud of you!
