More Traveling and Starting the Taper!

Hello Friends! This will be the last post until June 6th, as I will be traveling and in intense training all next week. Okay, so not SO intense of training…the training is in Disney World…but I will be jam-packed the days that I am there.  Our first 24 hour race of the season will occur…

Training, Training, Training, and Food Rationalization

Another solid weekend of training is in the books. We jumped around in the mud on Saturday on some very sloppy, so even more extra technical, trails. This is a before pic. Just picture this plus covered in mud and very wet and that is your after picture.  Seriously, I have to get better about…

Back to Our True Love

Oh, the excitement! Living in Louisville, we get a sort of “second Christmas season” around here…it’s called the Derby.

No Excuses and Onwards to 48 Hour Training!

Well friends, I did not have it in me on Saturday. I missed my goal time by 9 minutes and truly I have analyzed that race every way to Sunday and so has my lover boy. We just cannot figure out why I didn’t do better. No excuses. Yes, it was very rainy, but it…
