Rockin the Fruitarian diet

Day 14 , finished Hurt 100 on my fruitarian diet and PR'd my 50k time.
I'm going to keep with it, since I'm feeling great.
Lets see how I do this weekend at Fort Ord 50k. 3 ultras in 3 weeks. I'm going to run a good time. I'm feeling fantastic ;-)

"Some people create with words, or with music, or with a brush and paints. I like to make something beautiful when I run. I like to make people stop and say, "I've never seen anyone run like that before." It's more then just a race, it's a style. It's doing something better then anyone else. It's being creative."

Guess who PR'd her 50k time a week after HURT 100? Yep me !!
I was 35 when I ran 5:30, now at 48 I ran a 5:21.
I'm unstoppable.
Fremont Fat ass 50k. I think it was the energy from my magical Hurt bracelet that helped! Woo hoo

“The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall. ”

I DID IT!! I finished HURT 100 after 5 years of only completing the 100k option and 1 DNF, I am back up to badass status! And boy does it feel good to put the Hurt on Hurt.
I decided to go into this race as if it was my first hurt 100, go in blind with an open mind and run it with every part of my heart and soul. It worked.
I kept focused and positive had an awesome crew and pacers that kept me moving and knew the only option was a finish. Thanks Jerry & Donato for getting me there.
Also big shout out to all the volunteers who helped out.
And of course my little guardian angel Rocky Ridge. He was there every step of the way.
Finally my 7th HURT 100 mile finish 35:15

“Know that everything is in perfect order whether you understand it or not.”

I'm in Hawaii for the HURT 100 miler.
This will be the 13 time I have run the race with 6 , 100 mile finished. 5 , 100k finished and 1, DNF.
I am here with Andy for the first time in 4 years but that's ok. I am letting go to the life I had with and only good can come out of this for me. I gave so much driving back and forth to SoCal the last 4 years and 11 months. I'm so over it and him.
I need a positive and loving guy in my life's know he will come. I will continue on living and doing what I love run.
Please send me positive vibes this weekend I'm going to need them and all your energies to get me through this.

I realized today that I'd been the only one holding our relationship together because the moment I let go, it fell apart completely.

This week has been a whirlwind of emotions just trying to understand what went wrong.
I hoped Andy would change or try to at least make some effort to save what we had.
That is what hurts me the most, he gave up and was willing to fight for me, for us.
So I had to let go.
I am missing our fun times we shared and those funny things only couples understand , like the funny names we called each other.
I miss the Andy I first met. This past year we were never on the same page let alone the same book ;-(
I know my higher power has a plan for me. But for now I remain a little lonely and lost.

Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a teardrop.

I don't have much to say but I'm super sad its over after 4 years and 11 months I will be flying solo. I will take time in my life for me and work on being the best I can be.
I hope 2013 will be my best year yet. It's weird to say I'm single after being a little family Andy, me and Truman. Now it's just me and Truman.
