  • Heyyyyyy everybody! Had a few minutes at work so thought I would pop in and say hello and see how you are all doing. I've been good - training my face off, working, raising kids. Not much has changed except an increase in intensity and the super fun teen years with my daughter. :) I have a lot of racing scheduled but we'll…
  • @Avidkeo i am glad you are okay!
  • Was able to *mostly* catch up. @Tramboman consistent as ever! @Scott6255 i hope your feet and calves are better soon! @quilteryoyo i am in AWE of how well you are doing! You are so fortunate and I am proud of you for all the work you did prior to now, which has surely made all the difference @noblsheep if somebody bought…
  • So many race reports! You’re all doing so well! Remember this time last year when we were all devastated? Things are looking up! Really enjoyed reading up on everything - best I could, between things. Still hate this job but I’m doing it because some money is better than no money. I woke at 3:30 this morning instead of 4.…
  • How am I ALWAYS 100+ posts behind?!?! I had two rest days since the race last week and this morning was the first one where I felt more like me. Almost 100%! Also I GOT ACCEPTED in to the On run crew ambassador program, which is great because it means free gear etc! Woo hoo! Still working this new job while in search of a…
  • @polskagirl01 @Teresa502 it was the ozark highlands 50k
  • @Scott6255 thanks! I’ll never do another race that has that dude as the director again!
  • It was so hard. The elevation was 5000 feet. ALL. DAY.
  • @martaindale you still crushed it because you did it at all
  • Already 131 posts behind! Here is my race report from Saturday. Today and tomorrow are rest days thank God. It was close to 5000 feet of vert ALL day. Lots of DNFs, lots of people puking, lots of people laying on the ground... but I finished. And I never got sick or stopped moving. By FAR the most difficult ultra I have…
  • @ContraryMaryMary i love this so much! Thanks to all for all the birthday wishes! Yesterday was one of the very worst birthdays of my life. For lots of reasons. Didn’t want to celebrate anything because everything had was cumulative and by the end of the day, i just wanted to crawl into bed and stay. Did some race prep…
  • Thank you for the birthday wishes!
  • Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY @Tramboman !!!!
  • Heyyyyyyyyyyyyy!! I got a job - started yesterday - it’s remote and guess what, I cannot. Stand. Zoom. A lot of the time, I am waiting for other people to get access to files and watching them learn how to do it. I am still gunning for another position that’s much better - I heard from them yesterday and it sounds like…
  • Catching up! It's been what? A day? 100 posts behind?! @AlphaHowls Good to see you! :) I still haven't eaten crickets. :) @TheMrWobbly EXCELLENT WORK! BRAVO! STANDING OVATION! @Faebert @quilteryoyo @Contrary_MaryM @kgirlhart and everybody else - thank you! I have already taken my anxiety meds so I can't remember who all…
  • 791 POSTS BEHIND! Let's see, where did I leave you? I did do the 100 miles on New Years Eve, totally self-supported. I completed 101.01 in 23:02:55. It was one of the hardest, most amazing things I have ever done in my life. And I am so glad I did. I also lost my job and have been spending all my time trying to pick up the…
  • Oh! Not including today's mileage (I am not done with today yet), I am at 2145.9 miles for the year! Surpassed my 1200 mile pledge and have now surpassed the 2020 mark. Just keep going, I guess. :)
  • Morning! Checking in - 168 posts behind! Lord. I feel terrible about that because it's so hard to keep up and respond to each of you individually. Still running. Still miss you all. I am on day 2 of the Aravaipa Across the Globe event. That's kind of all I can think about between the kids and work and their therapies, etc.…
  • Thanks, everybody for the falling well-wishes! @eleanorhawkins I am so, so, so sorry. How are things today? @Teresa502 CONGRATULATIONS! I had to skim - I was hoping for an easy work day but nah. it's been crazy annoying and stressful. I did get to work from the hospital yesterday - My daughter had surgery - it wasn't the…
  • Checking in! Skimmed. It's almost Christmas! Ran an ultra distance Saturday - fell pretty hard. A little rough around the edges but I mcgyvered a sling around the fifteenth mile and finished it that way and still got a PR. I think I am basically fine. I have darker skin so it's hard to tell what's bruised and what's not…
  • Only 64 posts behind today. @Quilteryoyo I am so so so sorry. I'd like to echo what @rheddmobile said. Your presence here is a gift to all of us and I am so grateful for you. TN isn't that far from me - if you need anything, I will wear a mask and deliver! I swear to catch up soon. I love you all - @quilteryoyo you were in…
  • 159 posts behind. @quilteryoyo I am so, so, so sorry. I will be praying for you. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you.
  • @quilteryoyo great news! We have no news yet Still running at 4am - not a soul in sight. I touch nothing. Today i had red leggings and a white top. I am a candy cane 😂 @eleanorhawkins i got a notification that you commented on a post that i am tagged in but i don’t know how to find the post! I believe the international…
  • I’ll never catch up. I’m sorry. 120 posts behind. Ran an ultra Sunday. Got to push my my friend to his first ultra distance! Yay! What a moment! What my legs really needed after that was the two hour drive to get the kids! 😂 Still going. Still grinding. Signed up for the Indiana Trail 100 in Oct 2021. The dream was never…
  • @rheddmobile @katharmonic YESSS it will be all right! Now I can just focus on time and preparation and training. It's allllll gonna be just fine. And. I can still run! That's not gone! And hopefully my brother and his wife will get through this just fine!
  • Morning! Millions of posts behind! Update: My brother's wife got covid! So indy is OFF! Not over, just postponed. So @polskagirl01 when you said something like, "maybe consider this a sign of xyz," Yeah. I can overcome a lot of things. I even enjoy "wrassling," a lot of things just to see ( @Tramboman ) because I usually…
  • @noblsheep Terrified for me too, same as @tramboman. That sounds horrible. But also. It sounds really fun. @Tramboman A FOOT of snow?! I was looking at some photos of Courtney Dewaulter running in the snow in Colorado in the mountains in basketball shorts and a long sleeved shirt and trail shoes. I just keep wondering how…
  • @62Rich @Scott6255 @quilteryoyo Yes, yes, yes. I despise the cold. As in, i can't think of many things I hate more. It makes me angry, to the point of being livid. I know, it's weird. I half-jokingly say, "I am an island person." I am half Portuguese. Please just let me have the sun and warmth. For the asthma - I have two…
  • Morning! Wrapped up November with 240.59! Im in for a minimum of 200 again for December. it was 23F this morning. Fartlek. Felt amazing and the cold wasn't at all what I thought it would be. Everything around me was frozen yet I was not. Everything was in sync and clicked. It was probably my best 4am run up to this point.…
  • @quilteryoyo @polska_girl @skippygirlsmom @Tramboman LOD time is 12/28/2020 0500 There is no not doing it now. I don't have to make it to 100. Though I am going to try. To put you a little at ease, I will not be entirely alone. There is a running community in Indy also. I have reached out to them. We'll see who shows up. I…
