Growing Old Aint for Sissies!
Thursday found me flat on my back on a gurney in the ER. This stomach, back, feeling really tired thing, became unbearable and I decided to give my friends in the Emergency Dept. a visit. Lot's of Morphine, Zofran, and Benadryl later, and a butt load of tests found me okay. Soooo I guess I need to quit complaining and suck it up!!! It's time to move on with my bad self. This growing old ain't for sissies! This picture of me is just terrible, but I just had to post it. Always something..... For all you Morticians...STOP! I'm not dead yet! I just look that way! After seeing this picture, I needed a confidence booster, so I made my way down to our local Walmart. I really felt dumpy and frumpy when I walked into that place and walked out a different human being. Actually, I strutted out of that place. I have nothing to complain about. End of story.
With only a week before Leona Divide 50, I am just a tad bit nervous. I am going to take it easy this week and see how I feel. I am anxious to run on a course that is new to me. Another 50 miler in preparation for BH. Exciting.
Congrats to my BFF Suzanna Bon for her 4th place finish at American River 50 today. She finished with an awesome time of 7:30.20!! Way to go, Suz!
A big shout out to my sponsor First Endurance who supplies me with all my ultimate endurance nutrition. I received a box today and it felt like Christmas. Thank you First Endurance!
Today was a big money day. College Tuition, Property taxes, a new Gas Grill and face moisturizer!! Whoo hoo! I hope your day was as exciting!
