With the big game coming up tomorrow, I’m sure many of you will be whipping up tasty appetizers. Guacamole is hands down one of my favorite inventions. Ever. Sometimes I spread it on warm corn tortillas for a healthy snack, although for game day parties serving with tortilla chips is a must….
Such a relief to start back running this week and finally feel that my legs are back under me for the first time since UTMB. Running is so much fun.
The Hardrock lottery on Saturday was, of course, a disappointment for me—-I’d be so psyched to join that field at the front—-but so it goes. As such, my 2014 plans have solidified a little more. I’m planning on heading out to Moab in February for the early season classic Red Hot 55K as a tune-up before the 125K Transgrancanaria on March 1st. I haven’t decided about April yet, but I very much expect to race Transvulcania in May, maybe Zegama, and then probably another crack at Nolans 14 in June before Speedgoat and UTMB in July and August. TGC, Nolans, and UTMB will be the focus efforts for the year.
“Dogs hate us more than they hate mailmen. Hills try to stop us, but they only motivate us to push harder. And yes, we do buy expensive shoes, but not for the sake of fashion. We wake up with the sun, we are already ready for the day when others have just awaken. People give us odd looks when we order water with our dinners. We’re called crazy on a daily basis. But these are all parts of our lives. Because we are runners.”—(via truerunner)
