Shannon & Pam, after months of training, officially became ultrarunners with finishing Way Too Cool 2010 (3/13/10). They continue to run the long distances as they continue to challenge themselves physically & mentally. This is where they post those triumphs and also their tribulations.

11-21-09 Day 13 Shannon

Thursday and Friday ended up being very emotional for me. Because of that I didn't know "how" to post on this blog. After much therapuetic emailing with my 50k buddie, Pam. I'm feeling better about what this blog is all about.

It is understood that this blog is not only about our victories, but also our trials that we go through to reach our goal of running a 50k. Apart of our trials to reach our goal involves life, in general. Life does manage to get in the way and that will play a big part in reaching our goal.

So from time to time, there may be a post or two releasing our feelings, tensions, whatever to help get things off our chests, in order to move forward with our quest of running a 50k.

Ok, enough, now on to my training for Friday, since I didn't post yesterday. I made up for my TURD on Tuesday. Went to the gym, did 2 miles on the dreadmill and then did some ab work and lots of stretching afterwards. Oh my does stretching feel good.

Today brings a long day for me. I will run 2-3 miles this morning in my neighborhood. There is a small trail behind my neighborhood that I'll run on part of the way. I have to start out on the road for about a mile, then the trail is approximately .75 miles (it's been a while since I ran on it), then I have to run on the road back home. I think the total distance is 2.25. I guess I'll find out after I'm done. :)

Then I'm off to Auburn for a 4 hour class on long arm quilting, then it's a day of quilting with my quilting buddies - yeah - I need some down time with my quilting buddies, oh and Debbie is an awesome cook and always caters to my vegan diet - she rocks!

Have a great weekend all!
