My Bull Run Crew 😉

Me and Emmy

I completed my first 50 miler! In 11 hours. I had the best time of my life and officially fell in love with trail ultra’s. I know I will never be the fastest or even close to it- but there is something that happens to me during a long run. Sometimes it’s at mile 8, sometimes mile 25- whenever it is- I completely lose myself in the run. I become fluid motion. And beautiful. I am able to let go of everything else. It’s the closest I feel to my truest essence.

I really am compulsive by nature…

My race schedule for this year-

January- Phunt Run 50k

February- Hashawa Hills 50k

March- Suntrust Marathon

April- Bull Run 50 miler

May- New Jersey Marathon

June- NorthFace Endurance Run 50 miler

July- BURNING RIVER 100 MILER!!!!!!!

September- D.C Ragner Relay

October- Baltimore Marathon and Marine Corp

 

Now I know- it’s not suggested to do a race a month. I didn’t mean for it to happen! But every time I finish one, and I am still buzzing off it- I sign up for another. Even though I have the kids, work, school, meetings, and the house to take care of- running is the thing that balances me and allows me to be better in all of those areas. When I put down the toxic relationship and the cigarettes last August- my running really took off!

My life is beautiful

Tomorrow I am going to try(succeed) in running(completing in under 13 hours) my first 50 miler! I’m so nervous I’m sick. I’m excited… and I should be asleep cuz I have to get up at 230 am but it’s impossible. I have spent the day with my 5 year old at the e.r after he gashed his head open. He got 2 staples. And then I had to help my roommate leave- soooooo I have been alone tonight. And grateful, but feeling the enormity of my life and goals on my own shoulders. I have no one here to help me with pre race jitters and I could but I’d be settling which I refuse to do. So here I sit, exhausted, anxious, grateful and binge eating my face off.

Time to try to get 4 hours of sleep in!!!
