Countdown to Leadville – 37 days

Oh my gosh – 37 days until race day!

Every day I’ve been reading my race plan and I thought I would post an inspiring sentence from my race plan document. I’ve been adding to it for the last six months and now that race day is so close I want to remember these motivational quotes from past racers that are part of the race plan.

I’ve kept a blog since 2005. Thanks to my friend Tim, who has always helped me keep my domain name and WordPress CMS up to date so I can blog. This is my third blog.

While I love sharing (sometimes over sharing) stories on my blog, the main reason I write these blog posts are really for me to remember everything that happens. I love reading the posts over and over in order to stay motivated. I read my blog several times during the day from work and on my phone. Over the years I’ve deleted pictures or lost phones with photos so I read the blog posts to remember friends, places I’ve lived and visited, and re-read race reports.

Here’s today’s motivation so I finish Leadville 100 Run:

It only takes one positive thought to keep moving.

Leadville 100 Goals

This is me at the Leadville Marathon:

Serious, focused, staring at the ground – Zombie.

But come August 17 – I have two goals: to finish and to be the happiest person out there.

And while training for the next 8 weeks: – I will run and bike and train with joy, love and gratitude.

Repost / Mid-year goal review

This photo is so true. The original post from December 2018 really struck a chord. Seriously, my goals of running a 50 miler and 100 miler started years ago. I think the first time I thought about a 50 was 2014 when I crashed on my tri bike and decided to only run.

I signed up for a 50 miler and then couldn’t do the training.

DNS (Did not show) – however, not my first DNS.

Now, 5 years later I finished my first 50 miler and I’m seriously ready for my first 100 – all in the same year.

Here’s to finally meeting goals and my new mantra for 2019

Take  each adventure as it comes and be open to all possibilities.
