|Another road trip? Really?|
For life time marathon #55, I returned to roam the rattle snake invested trails Sycamore Canyon. Up and down hills that never seemed to end, I plugged along. I started out with four layers because it was so cold at dark o'clock, but by 10am, Mr. Sunshine threw rays of warm shines at me. I had to peel most of what I had on off. If it had gotten any warmer, I probably would have had to complete this marathon naked, which wouldn't have been a bad thing because it would have scared all the rattle snakes away! In any case, what got me through this brutal trail race was a couple of Marathon Maniacs who kept me laughing throughout the 26.2 miles of trail hell.
|Trail hill. Yay.|
|These two kept me plugging along on the trails.|
|I asked for an action shot, and Jean Ho delivered!|
|Finally got to meet ultra runner Rachel Spatz. She's ultra cute :-)|
|Dale Dale on the trail.|
I'm so happy to get this done because it brings me one step closer to reaching my goal of 52 marathons in 52 weeks. Like I said, as I get closer and closer to the goal, it gets harder and harder. With only a few left and a lot at stake, it's do or die. I have to finish the mission. Any DNF at this point and it's GAME OVER.
|Titanium Score Board: 48 down, 4 to go.|
48 down. Really? Wow, that just sounds so surreal. ONLY 4 LEFT!!!
