Memorial Day training weekend is almost here on the Western States Trail. It kills me that I won't be there. I had played around with the idea of going up and hiking/jogging from Foresthill to the River. I figured I could do that and still enjoy myself. But then reality set in and I thought about it for a few minutes and I know that it would not be the smart thing to do. I would most definitely get caught up in the excitement of things and it would be hard not to run and the possibility of hurting myself is high. So.......with much sadness, I will stay home and do a hike/joke thing closer to home. My Doctor said that I could run on a paved surface or treadmill as long as I don't fall. I don't think Foresthill to the River is what he had in mind. :)

I am lucky enough to be sponsored by La Sportiva shoes. Yesterday I got a new pair in the mail. They are the Quantum trail shoe. They have a funny wavy sole and they are ergonomic, adaptable, shock absorbing, stable and lightweight. I can't wait to try them out!
My daughter Courtney had surgery today and had her Tonsils removed. A big deal when you are 21 years old. I feel so bad for her because I know it's going to be a painful and uncomfortable recovery. Hopefully, she will be a healthier person without those gross Tonsils that constantly get infected.
To everyone heading up to the WS trail this weekend, have a BLAST! I will be there in spirit!!
