I found out earlier this week that I did not make the cut for the American River 50 miler. While my family has rejoiced in the news, I am disappointed. I do believe that everything happens for a reason. Most of the course is washed out from the recent deluge of rain and I would have spent 27 miles running in mud that is at times more than a foot deep. I am not afraid of mud, but I cannot even fathom 27 miles of mud.
The question is, what’s next? I am looking to run another 50K sometime soon (any 50K race recommendations fitblrs???) and go for the 50 miler this fall. Stay tuned…
Yesterday I attended my first yoga breath class at UpDog Fitness. My dear friend K had warned me ahead of time that it can be pretty intense. All I can say is wow! I have never experienced anything like it. I HIGHLY recommend checking out a yoga breath class.
