I figured since it's been a while, I should update my "followers". Hahaha. My followers consist of about 5 people all of whom pretty much know what's going on in my life already. So really this is just a journal entry to remind future me how I'm a pathetic writer.
Here's the deal. I finished my first 50 miler in May. Then I decided I would sign up for a 100 miler in October. Then finishing my thesis took a lot longer than I expected, so I didn't run much in June or July. Now I'm done with my thesis and defense (just need to get some paperwork signed). Now I have time to run! I'm a little worried that I'm cutting it too close on the 100 miler training.
I did manage to run a 50k a few weeks ago - Lunar Trek Night Race. I got a PR by almost an hour and a half, which is nice! And I came in first place. Also nice, even though there were only 3 women finishers. I'll take it. But I haven't done long runs for the past couple weekends. Booo. So the next few weeks will be important for me. I've got Coleen's Sweaty Ass this weekend. As many loops as I can or want to run on Friday night. My plan is to run 30-40 miles. This will be a great opportunity as it's always easier to do the long runs with friends.
My normal long running buddy, Coleen, has unfortunately started a job where she has to work on the weekends! Not cool, Coleen. Screw health insurance, your life should be all about running with me! Of course, there's always running at night, which is ideal in this heat. But I suppose she needs to sleep at night to get up for that 7am job. So really, I just need to stop being a pansy, stop drinking vodka tonics after work on Friday and get out on the trail.
Blah blah blah. Run run run.
