-Brooke and I are representing Utah up in here with our Stately shirts.
-This is just a portion of my friend’s Beanie Babies collection. I bet her full collection is worth millions.
-I caught her. Our almond butter love runs deep.
-Granola is one of those foods that I can’t stop eating once I start. This stuff is bomb.
-I swear Brooke grows at least 2 inches every time she leaves. At least shel still falls asleep in my arms, I don’t want her to ever grow out of that.
-On Sunday a few of us baked about 120 potatoes for a baked potato bar that we put together. It was a huge hit. Who doesn’t love a baked potato topped with cheese, sour cream, broccoli and some green onions?! FYI it takes a very long time to bake 120 potatoes.
-Runners really do make the best friends.
-Josse loves to eat hard-boiled eggs the morning of a race. I just cannot understand this. My stomach can’t handle anything but simple carbs the morning of a race.
-Our Bachelor treats from last night. Bachelor people—> Who do you think is going to win?
One of my favorite friends that I met when I lived in California just finished her first 100 mile race. She is the kind of person that you wish would just always live next door to you. Brooke and I miss her dearly. I asked her to write a little bit about her experience running a 100 mile ultra!
“The Jackpot Ultra 100 miles!! I endured the extreme temps, fought the heat exhaustion and I accomplished what I set out to do in Vegas. The most challenging part of this ultra was that it was a loop course and each loop was 2.3 miles. I did the loop many many many times;)
My faith as well as the love from my family and friends are what guided me and gave me strength. When things get tough in a race, I put it all in God’s hands. That is how I am able to always come back whenever things get really tough.
Having an amazing crew and the pacers that took care of me (especially when I found myself sleep running) was so beyond helpful. I am not sure what is tougher when running 100 miles, the physical aspects of running in 85+ degree temperatures (twice) or the mental aspect of running at night? Perhaps both. So blessed to have had the opportunity to run the Jackpot Ultra and FINISH!!!”
Who has done an ultra? Which one(s)? What was your experience?
Ever been out running in the middle of the night!?
A food that you can’t stop eating once you start?
Who watched Bachelor last night? Thoughts?
