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.

11-29-09 Day 21 Fun in the Sun - Shannon

So I haven't posted in a few days for various reasons, no real good reasons, except life getting in the way - no biggie though, right?

Fri - Day 19 - rest day. Traveled up to see my MIL and to get our X-Mas tree from the Downieville Lions. It rained all the way up, but blessed us on the way back by being dry. Had a great day, although I found Friday, being at MIL's the hardest day being wheat-free yet. Her home is the comfort food home, with all sorts of yummy stuff all over the place. But, I stayed strong and true, although it was REALLY hard!

Sat - Day 20 - Long run with the FTR's and my buddy, Pam. Pam was feeling strong on Saturday, and I had a hard time keeping up with her. We did a little over 7 miles running from Karen's bakery out and back. It was a good run. Windy but gorgeous! Spent the rest of the day working on bears, and I got to spend some time with my youngest, Skyla. That was really nice.

Today I headed out to run the Brown's Ravine trail from Sophia Pkwy to the Marina and back. Hubby, Mark, went with me and fished the lake while I ran the trail for 4.67 miles. I can say that the detoxing from going wheat-free has officially set in and the marina outhouse never looked so good before :). Today's run felt really good and I enjoyed it tremendously! The weather was perfect and it was just peaceful. Reason #5 why I like trail running - free therapy!

Not sure what tomorrow brings yet until hear back from Diane. Maybe rest or maybe 2 miles. I'll let you know tomorrow.

Stay dirty!
