Mary Oliver

Rest in Peace Mary Oliver. You inspired me and made your readers slow down and be in each moment. From poems about the joys of dogs off leash to the sadness of every day life, you taught me to live in each moment.

What Winter Warrior is teaching me

On this day of finding out if I get in to Leadville Run 100 I will write about what I’ve learned from Winter Warrior:

  • Get up early and wear a headlamp to get my miles in
  • If I need to do some in the morning and some in the evening that’s okay, just get all the miles in.

The rules state that I must run or walk OUTSIDE every day in the month of January.

I track my mileage everyday using the STRAVA app on my phone or download Suunto data.

I’m going for Gold:

Bronze = run/walk 1 mile each day
Silver = run/walk 3 miles each day
Gold = run/walk 5 miles each day

All for a Winter Warrior Hat

This is the prize for running/walking/hiking 5 miles everyday in January.

I also got Jeff to sign up and we are a team. Jeff has walked at least one mile every day despite getting a cold on Day 3.

Our team effort looks like this as of today. We are in 76th place.

This is where I am as of this morning:
