Thinking Out Loud

running + running + running | Thinking Out Loud Thursday

Wow,… Thursday…we meet again!…There is a little to talk about with Amanda and her Thinking Out Loud Thursday’s šŸ™‚


…only half crazy!

Well, I bit the bullet… I AM RUNNING A 50K!

Kansas Rails-to-Trails Fall Ultra Extravganza

predictedweatherMichelle and I will be running theĀ Prairie Spirit Trail Fall Classic 50K in Ottawa, KS in a couple weeks!

Is the timing perfect?? No, but is it ever?!…

The biggest factor that played into her first race was the heat…and it looks like historically, the average temps look GREATĀ that day!

Crossing all fingers and toes…

Yeah…I am QUITE nervous for running a 50K. After all, I did train for a marathon this summer without a marathon in mind… Mostly I just wanted the miles for my 2,016 in 2016 challenge and to keep moving for my fall pacing eventsĀ (which have already started with last weekends MO Cowbell run!!).

more running craziness……


This weekend is the busies of the fall! I will be :

  • working the pacer table for the Kansas City Marathon/Half Marathon Friday evening (come and see me!!)
  • running/pacing the half marathon Saturday morning
  • possibly meeting up with some Oiselle ladies for brunch or coffee after the race
  • taking an ice bath and putting my legs up for a little whileĀ (possibly a nap while my legs are up)
  • attending Miss Abby’s wedding
  • driving to St. Louis for the Rock and Roll Half Marathon Sunday morning
  • sleeping a little…
  • running the Rock and Roll St. Louis
  • taking in some of the post race celebrationĀ (always a lot going on!!)
  • driving back to KC to spend the rest of the day relaxing, napping, and putting my legs up

At some point later Sunday afternoon or EARLY Monday morning, I will drive back home to start the workweek grind again…

…good thing it will be a short week for me!
