I’m just going to say it… how is it the end of January already? It feels like we were just ringing in the new year yesterday. I’m excited for the weekend and ready to head out of town to run some trails. But first… I need to do some clear the air. I’m Runfessing in the new year – January 2018.
Sometimes I miss having family local that cheer at my races. The hubs just doesn’t get it, and I’ve come to accept it… don’t get me wrong, he is supportive – just in his own way. My biggest fans are glued to the tracking apps and cheering me on from afar. I find that I look forward to stepping over those tracking mats just as much as looking for the people I know lining the course.
At the recent Trail Racing Over Texas sign-up-a-thon I may have gone a little sign-up crazy. I registered for 3 races that night! I’ve got 4 trail races on the schedule this year! My race schedule is filling up nicely … and I’ve even signed up for some volunteer shifts at some races.
While I was signing up for races, I decided on my next big scary goal – a 50k. I’m going to run the Brazos Bend 50! You may recall last year I ran the 25k at Brazos Bend. I’m thinking it’s a good course to try out ultra running!
Knowing that I was planning on signing up for multiple trail races this year, I thought it would be good to get more trail shoes. Oh… and I threw in an extra pair of everyday sneakers. I LOVE the everyday sneakers… I’ve even worn them to work a few times (oops, dress code violation).
I recently had this greens dish that my mother makes… it was so good. I decided to make it myself and looked at the ingredients in the can of greens… low and behold there was bacon fat and pork parts in it! I’ve since veganized the recipe (coming soon to the blog).
That’s it for me… what do you have to Runfess?
