August 22-23 2009....


... I will be hauling my ass over Hope Pass twice! Yep, I decided to do Leadville this year. Not entirely sure I was sober or sane when I made this choice, but why not! Unfortunately after living in Kansas for 9 years I am now a flatlander and will have to figure out a work around to training on BIG, LONG hills. I will be going to Leadville in June to stay with my friends Mac & Angela, so a week of training on the course will be good and I guess this also means my parents will be seeing me a whole bunch this summer too! If I can go run up and down Pikes Peak a bunch of times that should help too, oh yeah, and lots of gym work. PHEW. This is going to be MUCH more intense training then Rocky Raccoon!
And the best part is that I get to do all my recovery in Australia. Erik & I are headed to OZ to visit his family and take a much needed vacation together. So for 4 1/2 weeks we'll be backpacking around visiting friends and family down under. Happy Dance!!!

I'd like to say I'm jealous of you for Leadville, but I just can't get excited for a 100 yet! And that's a kick butt one!

That is all good.

Leadville! Wow...You will need those drymax socks. (I love 'em. I even reserve one pair for "leisure" wear. Just because they are so awesome.)

oh yes Lori! I am a total Drymax convert now, I won't do a run without those socks! I've been wearing all my other running socks for leisure wear 'cuz I feel so bad about spending so much money on them and now not wearing them!
