I know, I know, I haven’t posted for the past 2 weeks. It has gotten super busy around here, and in my defense, I’m really not used to having “planning a wedding” in my schedule. Not that I’m complaining 🙂
Jen and Tonic commented that she wanted to hear all about my 100 mile race last year, and since I know not everyone lives the life of an ultra runner, I will have to write a separate post about that. Training for and running a 100 mile mountain race is really a life-changing type of experience, and can barely be described with words. Every time you hit the trails for a long period of time, you learn something about yourself. You learn how tough you are, what you’re really dealing with on the inside, how weak you are, how beautiful the earth is – the number of epiphanies you might have within one race/run is truly astounding. And it is something I’m proud of, and I’d love to share more of my trail running experiences with you soon, including details about Western States 100 last year.
With that said, here is my yummy easy sandwich recipe for the day – to energize you all for your runs & workouts today!
