The mountains are calling and I must go.

I love training in Yosemite. I'm lucky it's a 3 hour drive ;-)
My friend Julia and I spent 4 days training and playing in and around Yosemite. Woo hoo

Ohlone wilderness 50k aka 100 miler for me

I am to report my calf injury was never an issue.
I decided to just run 100 miles since my energy was very low from 70 miles on I was down on calories and dehydrated. It was very hot and dry and I had a serious bloody nose which I haven't had for maybe 20 years. I had to lie on the trail to get it to stop.
I rested a lot in the heat of the day in the shade. I would get up a climb and rest. I am very happy with my accomplishment. This was my 10th Ohlone 100 miles finish.
I finished in 35:10. I had great pacers Michelle and Kathy. Also thanks to Jerry and mike for helping transport my
I volunteered for 8 hours yesterday at the race. That was a blast! Congrats. To all the runners and thanks to all my friends who support me.

Live Life, Love Life

Back to running after a calf strain, thought it was worse was on crutches and a splint for 3 days. Was not allowed to run for 7 days or work because I'm on my feet all day. It meant no Miwok 100k. I started running Monday and have been running every day. I am actual in taper mode for my Ohlone 131 which starts Friday the 18. Looking forward to that. I feel blessed and thankful it was not as bad as originally thought ;-)
