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.

May 28, 2010


Ok so Pam and I have been seriously MIA from the blogging world, well at least I have been!  I haven't even stalked Facebook in a month.  I have been sssssooooo busy!  In my last post I talked about my vacation to Lone Pine.  Well I took 4 days off from work to take that trip and it took me til just this week to finally get caught up.  3 weeks for 4 days!!  HHHHHMMMMMM

Anways, this will be a quick catch up posting.

Since my trip I've golfed 3 times. First was at Cold Springs for their member/guest day
Then with my Twilight League at Cordova GC.
Then Mother's Day with my hubby and mom and dad at Sun City Roseville.

I have run with Pam only 3 times :(.  We had a really nice 12 miler out at Twin Rocks on May 8th.  The weather was beautiful and the trails in great shape.
This past weekend I was up in Grass Valley for the Nevada County Relay for Life.  This is a 24 hour event to help raise money for the American Cancer Society.  For the past 4 years I've made and donated a quilt to raffle to help raise money.  You can see the quilt in the pic.  I take my granddaughter, Justice, with me as it's our annual "camping" trip.  We spend the night out there in a tent.  Loads of fun!  This year, however, was very very cold.  We actually got a tad of snow before we got about 15 minutes of rain.  But that was it for wet weather, which was nice, because we were expecting a day of rain.

Every year, Justice draws the winning ticket.  This year the winner was Gwen Corbett.  Gwen is the woman who donated the fabrics and pattern to me this year.  She is also originally from Camptonville, CA.  Which is pretty cool because my team is the Camptonville Buddies!!  The quilt has gone full circle.

Running certainly has taken a back seat this month, which is a real bummer.  The weather has been so unpredictable with lots of gloomy rainy days and along with my heavy workload, has caused me to be in a terrible funk.  I'm hoping to get out of this real soon.

Today I head over to a quilt shop to work on a quilt with my friend Mickey.  Then I'm golfing this afternoon with my hubby, Mark.  We haven't really golfed together all season except on Mother's day.  So it's a golf date for us.

Sunday I'm doing the Western States Training Run with Pam.  I'm really nervous about it since my longest run since Folsom Point is the 12 miles I did with Pam back on the 8th.  Now I'm heading out on Sunday to do 20 miles.  Yikes. All I can do is just put one foot in front of the other and be ever so thankful that we are expecting 80 degree weather this weekend.  NO RAIN! YEAH.

So get outside people and enjoy this awesome weather we're gonna get this weekend.

Happy Memorial Day!
