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 – Hell’s Hills (4/6/19) and Red River Riot (4/20/19) (Character Building)

  I had smartened up somewhat now and knew better about running too long on trails.  For Hell’s Hills, I signed up for the 25K.  It would be a weekend alone.  I stayed at Coach Steve and Kat’s (about an hour from race site) and they fed me well the night before the race.  It was Kat’s birthday dinner! It was predicted to rain.  And rain it did.  It pretty much rained the entire...

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...

Leadwoman – February 2019

In February, I ran ~143 miles and rode ~240 miles.  So many people were so encouraging.  By now, I was letting it leak a little bit what I had signed up for. But, it depended on who asked.  If a runner asked, I just told them I was training for Leadville 100.  If a cyclist asked, I would say Leadville 100 MTB.  It was a pain to explain the whole series and quite frankly, most people didn’t...
