A lot of things have happened since I last posted. For one, I got a laptop. I have wanted one for a long time and I am very happy with my Macbook Pro. This is my first Mac and I am adjusting to it quickly. Since I last posted, I ran a trail marathon where I was reminded that I had neglected my long runs. It was a painful reminder. I walked away with an age group win, so I was quite pleased with that. Last week Matt and I went to Texas to run the Rockledge Rumble 32.5 miler, and I managed to win the womans race. Of course I was happy, and staying with Tom Crull was icing on the cake. Tom is the race director of the Rockledge Rumble and also a great friend. I met Tom on a training run on the Western States trail several years ago. We have been best friends ever since! Speaking of Western States, I put my name into the lottery and the drawing is on December 10th. As of this morning, there are 1700 applicants. Chances of getting in is probably nil. Oh well, there are many 100s that are beautiful and worth doing, so I won't be real disappointed. My fingers and toes are all crossed as I write this though. :)
Have a wonderful day and do something that makes you feel happy!
