51 hour birthday run!

Why run hours for age? Why not miles?
Me; because it's to easy to run 51 miles, running 51 hours is more of a challenge 

Mission peak 
Pacers that came out during the storm, Chris & Gabi
The party is about to get real . Fun with friends 
And just like that in a blink of an eye I was done 51 hours and 138 miles later.
Happy 51st b-day to me.
I don't get older, I just get better 😊

Quad Dipsea my 18th finish

I said after finishing this race the first time, 18 years ago I would never run it again. 
It's funny how you forget and the years click by. And somehow I just kept running this race.
Had a good run
Finish number 18 in 6:56

The Dirt Doxie ran his first 50k

That's right TruMan ran a 50k. I'm pretty sure he may be the first mini dachshund who has run that far.

Life is all about the journey

Heading out on the JMT from Whitney to Yosrmite on July 6th. Hoping to go under 6 days 6 hours unsupported. That's the plan.

If you can dream it, you can do it!

Life can be so busy at times training , working , training, working .
I like giving back to the trails i run.

Saturday I will do trail work in Sunol for 8 hours with my friend Phil. It's part of running 100 miles and 200 mile races. We do trail work.
We will head out after to go pace & watch at Western states 100. It's fun to be there giving back and not racing.
I enjoy those times.
I hope you all have a great summer. Next up for me the 224 mile John Muir trail. I will go unsupported and push for the record. I'm not feeling fast and haven't really trained much for it so we will see what happens the woman's unsupported record is 6 days 6 hours.
I start July 6th😳 under 7 days is always my goal

Mini Dachshund runs a marathon 26.2 miles

Yes you read that right! My dachshund TruMan all 9 pounds of him ,ran a marathon on a gravel trail in 6:17.
He ran and raised money for a Doxie named Sunshine that was abandoned in the cold and snow near a dumpster she is being helped by KARF a senior dog rescue Kentucky. She is in the hospital and has fought for her life. TruMan raised $807.00 to help with her medical bills. She is doing much better and seems to be getting better everyday.

He could of run it faster but his pacer me ,was slow from running the 50k the day before and Coldwater rumble 100, 5 days before .

He was so strong and never slowed down I was the one who was slow.
Just because a Doxie is small does not mean they can't do epic shit. 
TruMan has come a long way in two years since i fostered him and adopted him. He could not walk around the block because he was afraid of the world .
Now he's running wilderness trails with me.
He is my inspiration , he has taught me that having short legs means nothing overcoming all obstacles is in our mind.
I hope he can motivate you to get out and run. The DirtDoxie is amazing!!
