As of 03/15/2014

Beautiful sunny weekdays and pouring-down-rainey weekends seem determined to solidify my dislike of running in the rain.

Training with a 15k kick off!

Last weekend a friend and I ran the Seattle Hot Chocolate 15k.  We froze our butts off, but this was my friend's first 15k (really her first distance over 6 miles), and she did so well! 
It was also my first time running a race with someone which I really loved.  We will be doing a repeat with our next race - St. Patty's Day Dash on 03/16!

Today was a lot.

It's time for bed. 
Bed because today was a lot to handle in one day: one of my team gave her notice, and my partner got laid off today.
Yep, that's a big day.
I am really hoping that I can lump in the sprained ankle,  call that the three strikes and be done with it.  Because Wednesday at 8am I am taking my 7th test required for work, and I am terribly nervous. 

So instead of fretting,  I am going to tell a secret.   I am dreaming of a 100 mile run... It's mad I know, but as they say, if your dreams don't scare you they aren't big enough.   This year I am running my first ultra (49k or just over 30 miles).  Next year. I hope to run 50 miles, and after that??? Well, we'll see where my big dreams can carry me.  :)  Yes, this is a much nicer focus for the day. 

Night night!
