Mom made some pasta salad and chicken. Then cut up some strawberries.
I ate wayyyy too much and my stomach still feels awful haha.
Ever since I read “My Life on the Run” by Bart Yasso, I fell in love with Ultra Running.
Since then I have read:
Ultramarathon Man – Dean Karnazes
50/50 – Dean Karnazes
The Extra Mile – Pam Reed
I knew I wanted my surgery done because I always had this dream of running ultras and obviously I needed to be able to run more than a mile. So it was a no brainer that I wanted to run the rest of my life.
Each of these 3 runners have ran Badwater. The true test of the running body. The hardest ultramarathon around.
Ultimately I want to try this out. To be able to say you have done this would be incredible.
Obviously I won’t be attempting any ultramarathons for many of years.
My future looks like this:
college: college racing obviously
post college: half marathons, marathons and other road races.
then post kids probably will be ultra running, or when I want a break from competing for speed.
I really love endurance things. I love to see how far my body will go, which is why I loved the half marathon so much. I definitely look forward to doing more running like that.
Q: What are your ultimate goals in life/running/or whatever you love to do?
