Thank Goodness It's Spring
The tiny garden that's growing bigger every season. Strawberries, chives, rhubarb, parsley, sorrel, mint, squash, peppers, nasturtiums, various seeds (we'll see if they will grow)
Spring has arrived in Teton Valley, for the time being. Although some might see that statement as negative, it's just realistic for the area. It's entirely possible that it will go below freezing again and/or snow. Until then there's so much to do!
My cold is going away and I'm getting some sleep. I think I'll be fine for Saturday's race. Camping is going to be pretty plush. Air mattress, 6 person tent, sun shower, etc. I may text a post or 2 from my phone during or after the race.
Just so you know, doing races is not an attempt at winning or beating anyone. I'm a very solid back of the packer (that means finish in the bottom 30%) BUT I do want to finish. This 50 is actually 51.8 miles and has 13,700 feet vertical gain. It will be a challenge for me just to finish. My other goal is to finish this race without crying. I stink and walk as much as I run most of the time. I am consistent and persistent though. I think my lack of ambition for speed has kept me virtually injury free as far as running is concerned! I guess being a bad runner has some benefits.
Just got a BOB trailer for commuting. Here I've got my purse and jacket in the yellow bag and trash to take to the dumpster a mile away bungied on the trailer.
Very, very short video. Ignore Travis talking. Turkey pecking at my ring.
