My legs are recovering well. After the pain and ache subsided from my race (there were lots of pains and aches) it started to hit me that I ran a 100k. I'm pretty excited about that. With goals of 100+ mile races in the future I've had a tendency to look at the 100k as a step toward another goal. But this week I've been able to reflect on the fact that a 100k is a big deal too.
I've gone through several personally tough months recently and it's difficult to express how grateful I am to have running. Running reminds me I'm alive.
In other big news, recent warm weather has melted the snow off the lower elevation trails! Sadie and I are very happy. Saturday, we went out for an easy run with the wonderful smells of spring.
Sadie's about the happiest thing in this world when she's on a trail.
It doesn't get much better than having dirt underneath my feet.
South Africa is only a few weeks away and I'm getting pretty excited about that. So excited, to be honest, that I try not to think about it.
