My puppy BIlly and i getting ready to hit the trails this morning. She turns out to be the best running mate! Super fast, and never stumbles, unlike me.
I just signed up for the Mid Mountain marathon in Utah – Park City in September. Anyone every done this one? Check out the elevation profile, haha, this will be a monster! But regardless, i feel totally inspired by Scott Jurek’s book EAT & RUN.
Now we just have to find some decent hills to train on in Houston ….
This is gonna be so much fun! Gifted fools together with the super cool shop “sparrow and nest” in the Heights, Houston, will do a series of fun pen pal workshops. For both kiddies and adults! Make your own pretty stationary and make a lot of new pen pal friends!
Yay, my new Gifted Fools note cards are in and ready to travel around the world by snail mail! Great for a quick little note to a friend or a thank you. Send some love and cuteness in an envelop today! Also great as gift for Mother’s day or for your special pen pals.
This is a great read! I “like” to consider myself a mile junkie but holy cow, the insights in the training of super ultra running hero Scott Jurek are just unbelievable in duration and pace! And all of that on a “plant based” diet. Very, very inspirational and also great recipes.
I have been doing the plant-based running thing now for a year or so and love it. Feel strong and recover fast. Awesome to read that Scott Jurek describes the same advantages!
Saturday i ran the Huntsville trail 50K Hog’s Hunt and it was a blast! Starting off in the dark with headlamps was a new experience for me. Yes, there was some stumbling and no it wasn’t pretty but oh well: didn’t spoil the fun. Trails were in great condition, weather was nice and great bunch of people. The beet loading proved to be successful again! My friend and i got second place female. Yay!
What’s next? Yikes: don’t know!! Any good (ultra) suggestions?
