Lesson Learned ..

I am training for an ultra, my first, a 50k on the beautiful trails. This past Sunday I ran 10 miles and felt great .. so I thought I’d go out the next day and run a 20 miler I had planned with a friend. The 20 didn’t go as smoothly as the ten .. I started feeling it at mile 15. Between the trails, elevation climbs, the not-so smart 10 miles the day before and fueling I began to crash. I struggled to finish and made my way to the car .. where I wanted to just get home to shower and take a long nap! The feeling is horrible and this is not the first time .. but hoping the last. Lesson learned (for me) .. Don’t run 30 trail miles in 24 hours (because I’m not yet a well trained ultra runner) .. hydrate and fuel properly before, during and after and you will feel amazing!!! Today’s 18 miles on the trails were like night and day from my twenty miles. Not one time did I want to just “be done” or want to sit and scream! Yes, my feet hurt and I was ready for a shower .. but I finished strong and it made me see that I can and will cross the finish line. So as I start 2014 and log my miles as I #RunThisYear .. I will stick to my detailed training schedule and proper fueling – all the while remembering that I don’t ever want to feel that way again! I only want to feel amazing as I cross the finish line! Go out today and run, walk, ride or swim your year – whatever you do – be...

I Will “Run This Year 2014” … and not only in miles!

I Will “Run This Year 2014” … and not only in miles!

Happy New Year 2014! Wow, hard to believe that another year has come to an end. Why does it always seem to speed by? I am not quite sure I have ever really made a New Year’s resolution .. and if I did, I am sure it didn’t last very long (seeing as it’s not even in my memory bank). With that — I chuckle! My memory at times seems to be as fleeting as the weeks of the past year! Just ask my teens and dear hubby! It seems I always have the same “goal” — and that is to be in the best shape of my life. However, for me this year my goal will not only to be physically in shape, but spiritually and mentally as well .. and to be really present for this years journey. Oh yeah .. and to be really organized and on task – for this I ordered a “Life Planner” — because I want to finally “run my life”! My road to becoming an “athlete” may have started out slow, but it has had very steady progress and is something I think about at least 10 times a day! Getting out there and running some days seems so easy .. and believe me some days not so much! For me running is so much more mentally challenging .. this I know for sure! I have made so many friends through the running community and this year I am looking forward to expanding my “community” virtually! I have taken the plunge and joined an on-line community running challenge perfectly titled “Run This Year 2014” – Head on over to http://runninghutch.com/runthisyear/ .. and see what it’s all about! I ended 2013 on a great run note with the completion of my fourth marathon and began training for my very first Ultra marathon – a 50k in March! I look forward to many more miles in 2014 .. and I challenge you to Run This Year and as for me .. I will also run my life!...
