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.

I did it! - Shannon

After last night's meeting with Diane and Pam, I got the push I needed to finally get up and go to the gym.

This week's running schedule is to do 2 miles on Tues, Wed, & Thur, then Saturday will be 5 miles and on Sunday Pam and I will run 10 miles from Auburn to Cool. We are also to do yoga at least once a week.

So as I said, I got up this morning and got to the gym, I was only able to do 1.75 miles on the treadmill (yuck) because of time limitations, but then I did 1 hour of yoga. It feels good to be back in the gym, not that I did anything strength-wise, but I still did something. Now I just need to stick with it. But with Pam and Diane on my side, pushing me along, I know I'll do it. No excuses.

Now it's time for work - another yuck!


  1. Shannon, good job on your run! 1.75 miles and an hr of yoga is a fantastic start :) And to get up as early as you do is amazing. I ran 4 miles out at Twin rocks, followed by some yoga poses/stretches and core work. Now I'm sitting on an ice pack cuz I got a little R upper hamstring spot that is mildly sore. I'm going to use the ice liberally whenever I feel a twinge of pain.

  2. Yeah - glad you were able to do some yoga as well. Ya no injuries, missy. Keep up the ice work!
