Born to Run 100K is!
Emir and I planned this trip so long ago as our ten year anniversary trip. As it turns out we did end up celebrating our anniversary at the double Blue Ridge since it was only two days after our actual anniversary however this trip was meant to be our "real" anniversary celebration. The Double Blue Ridge was sort of an after thought and more meant to help us prepare for our first ever 100K. And who says you can't celebrate your 10 year anniversary more than once anyway?!?! The Born To Run ultra takes place out on a ranch in Los Olivos, California. Emir and I are flying out to LA on Friday morning and picking up our awesome camper van to drive to the ranch. We will be camping two nights at the ranch for the race. I'm so excited! There is a beer mile Friday, live music, tattooing, people running all kinds of distances from 10 miles to 100 miles and lots of partying after we are done running Saturday. Then Sunday we set off on our big road trip adventure to san fran, yosemite, the grand canyon and end in Vegas where we will fly home from.

We will be away for 9 days. I'm really looking forward to it but at the same time a bit nervous. We have never left the kids for more than 2 "sleepovers" as Niko calls it. I know the kids are in excellent hands with my parents and my sister not to mention my family has tons of fun activities planned for them while we are away so the kids probably won't even miss us. I think I'm most worried that after the first few days of initial "ahhh this is a nice break" then I will start missing them, ALOT!
|So hard to leave these cuties for 9 whole days!!!|
Anyway needless to say, I know this race is going to be super hard but I really cannot wait. I was very surprised at how after a couple of days, my legs felt pretty good. I'm guessing the coach Caleb "no rest ever policy" has something to do with it ;-) I even did some speedwork the other day and felt really great so I'm not too worried about my legs going into it. Is it time to fly to Cali yet?!?!
