|Today we ran 24 miles of the 50 mile course we are running in 3 weeks. The Hodges 50 miler. Everyone will be running the same race. That makes it so much more exciting.|
|This is part of course. I have grown to love this course. I used to cringe at the thought of running here because its was so hard for me but slowly it getting easier and my heart has grown fond of Lake Hodges. I have good time here.|
|So about my run today. I got my butt kicked a bit , I spent a lot of time way behind my group but I loved every minute of it and the cool guys I ran with. It was a good run day. I also feel thinner after all the food I ate the last three days...|

|Happy Monday. This is my favorite picture from this weekend. Thank God for I-phones how did we take pictures before them. I have been thinking about my word on my runs. If you don't know what I am taking about go here. Ali Edwards is a Rock star in the world of memory keeping her take on writing down your own story and scrapbooking is simple but beautiful. For the last 4 years I have picked a word that I felt I wanted to live by and tried to incorporate into my life. I really believe that it has made my life juicer. I think I have my word for 2015. I am not 100 perfect so my last couple of runs I have just thought about the word and let it sit with me. If its the right one I will know very soon. |
Holy Cow Mike got a Go Pro so if I can figure it out I will try to use it very soon. I have a 70 mile week ahead of me and I am eating well drinking lots of water so all that is left is me putting in 100 percent and by Sunday I am sure that will mean just showing up and putting one foot in front of the other. I have lots of thoughts of what races I want to do next year ?? So many fun events to work and train for. I honestly have to say I love running and how good it feels to be able to go outside and run around for hours at a time. Life is good.

|Today is the middle of the week again. Its crazy how fast time flies. On this day I am taking this little guy to see Santa.|
|Here we are Carmen and me. I really love her she is a special being with a very beautiful soul. Just kindness and love come from her. She was very sick.|
|I love this picture because even Jack knew she was special. He felt it so he tried to feed her with his bottle and then just laid on her lap. My little boy knew his aunt was extra special. Nice|

December 4 . I am officially signed up for two races so far for 2015. Two 50 milers (deep breath).
I am excited and when I typed tow 50 milers I got butterflies in my tummy. The kind that make you smile.
I will be running The San Diego trail marathon and 50 mile race. It takes place January 17, 2015 and the course looks to be flat and really close to my house. The race director is a very cool guy Paul Jesse and he is also a really good ultra-runner. There are still spots left so if you want to run this one go sign up.
|Then on May 9 Th I will be running the PCT 50 miler . This is going to be my mothers gift to myself. It has a 13 hour time limit so I should be fine. I am excited because as I am sure you know the PCT is magical and it has so much history and it is a dream place for me. I am a mom before anything else it is what I was born to do but getting to run this race its for the Gloria that loves to run. Every one should have something they just love to do for themselves. |
Happiness is different than pleasure . Happiness has something to do with struggling and enduring and accomplishing.
