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.

12-3-09 Day 25 Shannon

So I woke up late this morning and seriously did not want to get out of bed. It was soooo cold this morning!!!!!!!! Usually when I wake up late, I throw in the towel and tell myself, well now you don't have enough time to get in a good workout, why bother going?! Then I go back to sleep.

Well with Pam and Diane on my hills, I can't use that excuse any more! So I got up, rushed around, and got out the door and to the gym. Yesterday I indicated that I wanted to do an easy 2 miles then yoga. Well with only 25 minutes until yoga, I had to run hard to get in my 2 miles. I did it! Phew.

Well let me tell you something, doing yoga while extremely hot and sweaty is not an easy task. It probably took 15 minutes to finally cool down enough to enjoy the yoga :). Definitely need to make sure I have enough time to cool down before yoga from now on.

Tomorrow is my long run on the trails with at least one other FTR. Donna has agreed to run with me - yeah. I haven't run with Donna since we were apart of the now defunct River Rats running group. She is faster than me, but she's a really neat person, and I know she will slow it down just for me. Plus she's bringing her newest doggie, Cream, can't wait to meet her.

Stay dirty.
