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!!
