Whew! It has been a whirlwind of life the last month! I sure have missed my blog, and all'a you guys and gals who bother to check in :)
So, since we left off back in August I have...driven (i.e. been the passenger in a vehicle) to Iowa, Chicago, Iowa again, and then Colorado with Geof; slept in the back of our truck in a Wal-Mart parking lot; paced good friend Brian G. up and over Hope Pass at the Leadville 100; signed up for our next 100 mile run (we're heading back to Rio Del Lago 100 in California in November!!); started school (physical therapist assistant program); lost my brain, then found it again after surviving the first week; woops, lost said brain again the next day but luckily located it once again; organized my heart out; met our lab cadavers; run a WHOLE BUNCH, even done speed work more than once (what the WHAT?!); cut off 8 inches of hair; done some jumper photos; ran into a moose on the Great Western Trail, and eaten a lot of sardines.
That's a whole lotta stuff!
Basically, my excuse for the next 18 months is going to be...school :) Bear with me, please. I promise it will pay off in plenty of entertainment and write-y stuff!
Meantime, we are still chipping away at the mileage, gearing up for RDL100, where we are aiming to set a new 100 mile PR for both of us. We'll be running together and have our sights set on 22h:30m :) There, I put it out into the universe. Done and done. I like when people explicitly state their goals, so I am going to practice what I preach :)
It is September 2nd, holy cannoli! Mmmm, cannolis :) Wasatch 100 is next weekend and I plan on being envious of all the runners toeing the line whilst observing the fun from the trail.
