hitting the trails


hitting the trails

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.

EAT & RUN by Scott Jurek – Great read!

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!

Ahhhhh! now i wanna run a 100 too! (Some day!)

Have a great Sunday!


These shoes never disappoint!


These shoes never disappoint!

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?

Have a great week!
