Eve-ville 100 – The 24 Hours Before

                              It was time to leave for Eve-ville.  Gary, Kimberly, Shane and I were riding together.  They met at my house at 6:30ish that Friday morning 9/6.  It was an 8-hour drive.  We went to get Gary and made it to Grindstone around 3:30 p.m.  The plan was for Gary, Sheila and Jello to ride the course on...

Leadwoman – August Days Before the 100 MTB

Sometime in May or June, I started getting invited to my bestie’s 40th birthday in Florida the weekend before Leadville MTB.  I completely ignored all the invites and fun being planned because there was no way I was going.  I watched all the posts in the birthday group for months moping around that I was going to miss it.  As it got closer, it was almost like I needed to go.  I needed to get away. ...

Leadwoman – Silver Rush 50 (7/7/19) (2nd/5 events)

It was the girl’s first trip to Colorado and they couldn’t wait to get there.  We stayed in Salida.  I really liked this decision because it was south of Leadville.  It wasn’t as far of a drive compared to where I was scheduled to stay the following month.  We overnighted in Amarillo at the same place we’d stayed for Memorial Day weekend and made it for the Salida 4th of July parade and...

Leadwoman – July 2019

                  In July, I ran ~161 miles and rode ~423 miles.  This is the month things really started to fall apart in my personal and work life. I was no longer useful at home.  I was brain dead all the time.  I was forgetful.  I was sooooo tired.  I was going to bed at 8:30 right after I put the girls down.  LP and I never saw each other because...

Leadwoman – SCAN Symposium in Phoenix (4/27-28/19)

Here I am.  At the same conference that all of this started at a year ago.  Where I had learned that altitude could be acclimated to with multiple exposures.  I had a lot of training to get in that weekend so I wasn’t too sure how much of the conference I would be attending.  Fortunately, there are a lot of active dietitians that always do fun things with me at these conferences.  Off the...

Leadwoman – Life outside of training April (Wedding, Award, Easter egg hunt)

Obviously, the most important event outside of training this month was the wedding.  It got rained out.  Fortunately, everyone was planning on staying the night in Fort Worth anyways and my amazing hairdresser (Monica) and caterer (Z’s cafe and catering) came through for us!  We were married!  My stress levels were at an all time high.  My brother came through on wedding day and kicked everyone...

Leadwoman – April 2019

In April , I ran ~132 miles and rode ~302 miles.  April was really tough for some reason.  Oh wait, it couldn’t have been the 2 travel races, wedding and traveling for a conference.  It was the first time I missed some workouts just because I didn’t feel like doing them. It started with 3/31 and not wanting to trail run and that bled over to 4/1 and 4/2 where I just took days off. I also...

Leadwomen – Life outside of training in March

      The eve-ventures still had to continue somehow!  We hadn’t been doing as many fun family outings!  Or, they all revolved around training and racing.  So off to Fort Worth Botanical Gardens Lantern Festival we went.  On a school night! I had my last dress fitting and that was that!  I paid someone for the first time to clean up my yard.  That was sooooo hard for me!...

Leadwoman – Life outside of training in February

Wedding planning was in full swing.  As a matter of fact, I had procrastinated to the point where I could not order a dress from any of the stores.  But, I found the most amazing lady who was going to make my dress.  And it wasn’t even going to cost a fraction of what I was expecting.  Huge stress relief.  I found a store where we could rent the girls’ dresses and they had a blast trying...

Leadwoman – March 2019

In March, I ran ~172 miles and rode ~320 miles.  This was starting to get time consuming.  Since LP works on Saturdays so I had to drag the girls with me to Saturday races and/or let them run/ride with me at the end of training sessions.  This turned into them camping for the first time, helping hand out medals at races and doing their first trail race which they looked forward to.  I’d never run...
