Leadwoman – Pedernales Falls 60k (6/22/19)

The following weekend, I headed down to Austin with the girls to race and stay with Coach Steve and his wife Kat again.  We talked a lot that weekend about what the rest of training should be like.  I was supposed to race a night race that weekend. LP was going to have to drive down after work that Saturday to come get the girls from the race and take them back to Steve and Kat’s.  But, Uncle Steve...

Leadwoman – Leadville Marathon (6/15/19) (1st/5 events)

              I went to Leadville for the first time this month to run the marathon.  This was the first of the five events.  I went alone.  It was at this race I realized the layer of stress that bringing the girls caused. It wasn’t until I didn’t bring them that I realized this.  This would become important for the later races.  My friend, Eugene, was there...

Leadwoman – 24 Hours in the Canyon (6/1-2/19)

The first weekend of June, I loaded up the girls and we went to Palo Duro Canyon for 24 hours in the Canyon.  This was a bike race.  I had done 6-hour event 3 years ago and won.  By a pretty big margin actually.  I was not in as good of shape on trails this time around so my goal was to ride 6 hours first day and 6 hours the second day.  As the name indicates, you can ride for 24 hours straight if you...

Leadwoman – June 2019

In June, I ran ~161 miles and rode ~342 miles.  By June, my running body was feeling better and I got my running mileage back up.  This meant less time on the bike though.  It was such a balancing act.  June was a series of back-to-back traveling to do events. And lists.  Lots and lots of lists.  For camping, for road traveling, for plane traveling, for racing.  Even with all the lists, I still...

Jemez Mountains 50k (5/25/19)

On memorial day weekend, instead of going to a party I’ve been to for at least 7 years straight, I packed the girls up and we headed to New Mexico for a 50k.  This was a key race for me since it would be my first at altitude.  We overnighted in Amarillo.  At this point, my stress levels were just continuing to increase.  I had very little time to do anything but work (some) and train (a lot).  So...

Leadwoman – May 2019

            In May, I ran ~126 miles and rode ~523 miles.  In May, I was still having some pain running (hence, the lower run mileage).  My yoga studio was going to be closing down so I wouldn’t have that anymore.  My warming up before running religiously evolved into dynamic stretching also.  I was stretching in the shower.  Stretching during breaks at work.  It...

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...
