|This is her running to the "finish" area|
|Belmar crew - Mo with Colfax, me, A, Dulce, Paula, Andy, Laurie and Sue|
|Dang, I blinked! This is why I wear sunglasses!|
|I was running well enough that I didn't stop for any pictures other than this one - so pretty!|
|Dark, dark, dark|
|I feel obligated to say that this can was empty - although I did have some of it when Westfax was pouring|

Thursday (11,617 steps) - Finally headed back to Belmar for run club.
I had thought that I would be walking to "taper," but at the last minute we decided to start with a run and see how we felt. Meredith joined Dulce and Matilda and I (A ran super speedy with Laurie and Annette). It was pretty darn chilly, I was glad I had worn long sleeves. Andy had made some pineapple-fanta-alcohol drinks, accompanied by jell-o shots. Those were tasty.
Headed to Rocko's (for the first time in months) for some nachos.Friday (8,514 steps) - Nothing!
Saturday (68,836 steps) - Bear Chase 50K!
After I picked up A at Cattail we went back to the finish line. I was finally hungry after running and we had Flippin' Flapjacks (pretty much the best pancakes ever) and sausage. We stuck around until the wind picked up - then we decided it was time to head home. We didn't get home until 6:30 and by the time we showered and had dinner it seemed like it would be a good idea to go to bed.Sunday (8,003 steps) - Up even earlier because as much as I tried to negotiate arriving "late" for volunteering, I was told I needed to be there by 5:15 (we had gotten up at 4:30). We didn't arrive until 5:30, but it was enough time for us to get set up with packet pick-up.
Official time - 1:05:45
Overall place - 109/239
Gender place - 58/157
Division place - 1/2
|A with Jen, her hero!|
Monday (5,650 steps) - Turns out that it was a good idea to schedule A's make-up gymnastics class for this night as it was POURING all day and we would have skipped running North Table anyway. As you can see I literally did NOTHING all day.
- 126,534 steps (thank goodness I ran an ultra. Three days I didn't even hit 10,000 steps)
- 37.6 miles run
- Zero anything else
