LOVE YOURSELF...................
End your day by privately looking directly into your eyes in the mirror and saying “I love you”. Do this for thirty days and watch how you transform. Mark Victor Hansen
Yeah thanks Larry & Rob for making me this cool award. I picked up my Ohlone 131 finisher award in Sunol Thursday afternoon. I did my last long run of 10 miles ;-)
It was an awesome day it was warm.
Don't ask me what happened to yesterday or today. No heat training ran 6 yesterday and today 3 with Rocky then 8.5 with Mike.

I am ready for the next journey in my life Western states 100. I am mostly excited for all the first time 100 mile runners it's such a cool feeling crossing that finish line for the first time.

I am looking forward to Andy pacing me. I think this will be only the second time he has paced me since we usually run all the same races. Wait it's the second time at a hundred ;-)

I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. Oh and Happy Dad's day to all you Dad's.
Ok need to finish coloring my hair. Making it all Hot Pink for Western states ;-)

You are so ready for the WS100.

I'll be thinking of you as I try to finish my first Ironman.

All the best and safe travels my friend.

Hey chr15-
Thanks so much. You should do an ultra. Just find a 50k train for a few months and run it ;-)

Thanks Catra.

So I run a load already... I would say at current fitness leevl a 15mile run wouldn't be too much of a stretch (it wouldn't be fast but it's do-able)
How do I take it to the next level???

You definitely deserve that award. Congratulations! Also, I had a chance to speak to the security guard and everything should be fine from now on. Keep up the great work and I will see you on Mission Peak or in the neighborhood, neighbor.
