After the run (January 20, 2018)

Clear skies and actual warmth from the sun helped to ease the winter blues just a bit.

Just a bit.

Real feel of 8.


PMS and the cold
I’m so cranky
I may implode

This is what winter does to me.

2017 started out great. I was running a lot of easy miles in the mountains as I prepared for the Zion 100K. Running-wise, I was in a good, happy place.

After Zion, the trails seemed to turn against me. Along with all of the amazing views, swimming holes and trips to BurritOh! and Mudhouse, it was a summer full of ticks, yellow jackets and poison ivy.

Fall and winter brought me two sprained ankles, bursitis and the flu (which I’ve still not completely recovered from).

Even though I’ve not been running much for the last three months, I ended up with just over 1500 miles for the year, which is a record high for me.

2017 races:

Hashawha Hills 50k

Zion 100k

Conquer the Cove marathon

Zooma Cape Cod 10k

West Virginia Trail Trilogy 50k


Running Highlights:

Zion: the race, the vacation, meeting Cory Reese.


Conquer the Cove marathon (and jumping into the lake afterward!)


Swimming holes galore. Including an awesome new one that Emily and I discovered.

A running weekend in Boone

Zooma with my cousins!

And some non-running highlights


Looking back, 2017 was a pretty good year.

Happy 2018, everyone!

My first run in the mountains since the Trilogy and I sprained the same damn ankle again. Had to limp back to the car. I am so angry. And sad.
