|Hey you ! It is me and I am checking in. So whats going on with me.|
I am feeling recovered from Noble Canyon..
That feeling goes with picture number 1.
So even though I love the long races recovering is a necessity for me. A-lot of sleep and more sleep. Jack sleeps I sleep. I also am doing my green homemade smoothie thing everyday sometimes twice a day and I am not sure if it helps but I am drinking them.
picture number 2
says I choose to believe the green drink thing helps.
Then there is picture number 3.
I had the best run today. Yes it was so crazy hot and yes I forgot my water and music but I am thinking that is what made it so great. It was 7 miles and I was soaking wet but it was so good. It was one of those runs that reminds you why you love the runners high so much, maybe the only 7 mile thing made it nice too.
SO what is up picture number 4.
I am Nervous and scared about my last race. You KNow Cuyamaca 100k. I have heard so many scary stories about it. I have heard the second loop is so hard ,maybe the second loop is crazy hard. You know how it works when people tell you it is going to be really hard then only two things can happen. It is either crazy hard or it is going to be way easier than I think. I have never ran tho space before so that also makes it intimidating but and are you ready when I finish this race I will get my Grand Slam Jacket. Please do not worry I will do a how do I wear a Grand Slam Jacket blog post. So with less than 1 week to before my next 100k I will be checking in soon…I think I the runners high thing is still with me….

|The aid stations had everything we needed. Caring volunteers ready to cool you off and yummy food. I try and only eat bananas and watermelon (my tummy likes that) and Ginger ale. This is never a good place to try new food if you ask me.|
|This was not an easy race. It was hard and warm out there. This takes a ton of work. I don't care if you are in the lead or in the back, it's 31 miles of hard work for all of us. Thats what makes it so good.|
|This is my #runningselfie|
|Here is a blurry group picture. It was a good time and the best part hanging out with all these cool people. Saying thank you to the race director after you finish because you feel so accomplished. Life as a runner is a good life.|

|This was 2012. I ran Noble Canyon for the first time. Making this my first successful attempt at finishing an ultra marathon. I was so nervous I cried in the car and then I got sick. The start was awesome. I ran with Jeff and Mike. OK we started together and they finished way before me but we ran together for the start. It was such a good time. Next Saturday I will be running my second Noble Canyon. I am so excited and today I got butterflies in my tummy at the thought of running another long race. What excites me the most is the amount of time I get to be out there running. In the mountains in nature. I love that feeling. The feeling of being free of everything. Its just me and how far my legs can take me. EEEKK If you want to ready post 3 years ago you can go here.|
|One more week to go !!! DO you have any races coming up ? do you get butterflies ?|

|Last week my dad and I went to The Wild Animal Park. It was hot. Can you tell how hot it was ?|
|We only stayed for a couple hours. We left at 1 pm because it felt to hot for all of us. In the couple hours we explored I was once again fascinated with the fact that being a child is really great but so is being a mom.|
