Supposed to be another nice sunny day! Tiff wants to ride again if we can work it out. Easter at the in-laws later.
We dyed eggs yesterday with real food - beet juice, pom juice, tumeric (yellow), onion skins (orange), spinach (green). My beet juice was watered down so that did not work, pom juice either. The spinach turned the eggs a streaky, light army green which Gabe really liked but not Grace. Tumeric and onion skins worked great though.
Foot was sore yesterday, wore the brace more. Wore it on the bike and my foot actually felt better after the ride. Weird. It is tricky to get the brace on just right but when I do it is pretty comfortable. The only things I know - my foot gets sore with time on my feet, ice makes it feel better.

2014 Happy Trails

April 19, 2014
Inspires : 1

Decided to run on Nordic trails on course for Ice Age 50k. Per usual, got a later start than I wanted or I would have probably gone 24. Did two loops of the 9.2 trail, plus went off on horse trails and Ice age for a a few extra miles. Those miles are a bit of a guess because I forgot my Garmin!. Loop actually had every 1/2 mile marked. On Ice age I guessed low (11:30 pace) so might me a tad longer than this. Beautiful day that started in upper 30's and ended at about 60. Course is challenging, but nothing worse (and probably not as bad) as I what I train on at Lapham. Probably took the beginning a little too fast and severely under hydrated (6 bottles for 22 miles), but all in all pretty pleased. Only walked up a few hills including only one on second loop.

Positives:
Stopped in to Habitat Restore spur of the minute and found a dresser for 1/2 off for the spare bedroom, so the price was $25.
Found a pretty necklace to wear with my new dress tonight.
Fought (and won) the urge to text/email/call M when I was feeling melancholy after running across old pictures of us during happier times  UPDATE Everyone should know that while I didn't contact him, I did pray for him.  
Felt a peace descend on me when I entered the church this morning.

Let the 2014 Season begin!

Stats taken a while after run and before dinner, %water 59.9. As planned, ran the Half Mary+ course that I did last month. This time and despite some sleep issues, I was feeling pretty good about running. Sunny skies, nice temps, and bit of a breeze to cool me down just got me feeling good about running! And it's good I felt this way as I wasn't so chipper after a not so great night of sleep. But, I think the sun and warmth woke me up. So, I running along at a nice pace of sub-9 and getting down as I went along. But, I knew that wouldn't keep up completely with all the hills on this route. So, I just paced myself but I did run down the hills instead holding back this time. I at last got back to my car but was short of 13.1 and so ran just a bit more which really took me on the same route as before. Good run and then I set a spell by visiting my friends Jenn and Jon who lived not too far away as they recently returned from a CA vacation.

The one thing I have to be mindful o[...]

The Bearwallow Beast is going to be ugly this year. My foot is still not up for real world running, let alone 1600 feet gain. :)
 This has been a pitiful week for training. On my honor, I will try, to do my best... this coming week.
