It's been a long time since I blogged but I've allowed my life aside from running to take over full force.  The past month was a whirlwind thanks to getting married.  The wedding was fabulous (wooohooo!!!!!) but playing tour guide to my family, returning to an increased responsibility load at work, and taking a weekend to wine taste with my husband have left me with zero desire to train.  I initially had a lofty goal of attempting Javelina Jundred but that is looking even crazier than it did a few months ago. Now, I am just worried about being in shape enough to complete Nobel Canyon 50K; that course is very technical and, thanks to the shifting in seasons in socal and record heat, scaring the life out of me. 

I again skipped my long run this weekend due to running errands, watching the Olympics (I love watching and devoted my evenings that past two weeks to that), and being lazy with the hubby.  I have been getting out in the heat for short runs but 4 - 7 milers on a bike path are nothing compared to a trail ultra.  The next next few weeks are busy thanks to friends' weddings and showers; while I wish I could just run away from responsibility and hit the trails, I just need to suck it up and force myself out the door when I have the time without allowing myself to find excuses.  Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck! And more importantly, congratulations on your marriage!!!

    The heat has been tough, hopefully it will cool down in time for some training. It's really been brutal.

  2. Congratulations! Getting married is great but does send one's regular routine down the drain. I got married on 14 Jan this year and my 1st half of 2012 was the lowest mileage I've done in 9 years. All worth it though! :)

  3. Training goes in cycles. As ling as you're not like me and have a one year down cycle you'll be fine. enjoy life!
