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.

12-2-09 Day 24 Shannon

Nothing exciting to report today. Got to the gym, did a really good upper body workout followed by some ab work. Then got in a hard 2 miles on the treadmill. I'm trying to increase my speed on these short runs. However, since I'm putting in 8 miles on Friday, tomorrow's 2 miler will be really easy and I'm gonna get in another yoga class. :)

Went to a gym I haven't gone to in a while and was dissappointed to see so many pieces of equipment label "out of order" (even benches were marked that way - huh?). I gave the by buddy up in front a bad time about it. He said they are fixing the vinyl on all the seats and that not so many pieces were supposed to be done at the same time. He promised it would be done by next week. Knowing this gym, I doubt it. Ever since it got sold to new owners, the equipment, the bathrooms, etc. have all gone down hill. But I like this little gym because it's not a "family" gym, so no frufru'd out men or women. In fact, I'm usually the only female in there as I get there really early. So I get the bathroom to myself - hehehehe.

Stay dirty


  1. good job, ms Shannon! You are doing great :) I have to admit I had NO motivation today at all, but did my elliptical anyway. I think i'm coming down with something, feel alittle feverish. Man I hope I'm not getting swine flu!

  2. Yes, good job Shannon! What gym do you go to?, no...just an itty, bitty cold. Could be the stress of family stuff. Stay postive and happy.
