Everyone knows that Memorial Day weekend is beach weekend... BUT the mountains called and I made a quick trip up to VA before beach weekend for a little workcation... I have been nothing other than delightfully surprised by these STUNNING views. Shenandoah has not disappointed. ๐Ÿ˜

Celebrated my 40th Birthday in the mountains of Massanutten Va. I had such a good time and am truly grateful #40thbirthday #celebration #grateful #mountains #massanutten #massanuttenresort#camo #camaflouge #army #terica

Just completed my second ๐Ÿ’ฏ miles. That was harder than anything I've done in my life. Fought hard all day to stay at the front. Legs were fines, body had some issues, but I manage to hold on to it to close the #MMT100 in 4th place clocking a respectful 22h03. Special thanks to my wonderful pacer who ran 65 km with me. @tomtomduhamel you rock !

DNFโ€ฆ.is a term used in ultra running that means โ€œDid Not Finishโ€. I have quite a few of those as many of you know. I like to push the edge of my running efforts and Saturday was no different. For the first 38 miles everything was feeling good when running. After that things changed and my legs were not so happy with running. I was ok with that and adapted quik. By mile 78, I probably had 35+ miles of hiking. My running energy was long gone and hiking was feeling like slow motion. Feeling exhausted I took a nap to try to regroup at mile 78 and it just didn't work. I called it a day at 78 miles tired but ok with the decision.
I have been doing these events since 2006. A DNF is all part of the game when pushing outside your comfort zone. I always say โ€œThe races always get in the way of trainingโ€ :-) The miles I spend with my trail friends training/socializing on trail is the best part of this sport. So I guess the amount of days training/socializing with friends means I have a lot of wins/finishes and that is what means the most to me. Sure it can be disappointing at first but I learned to move on fast and focus on the next event. After hanging out all weekend with many trail running friends I made over the years, no matter a DNF or finish, everyone supports each other and gives so much encouragement to keep on keeping on.

Thanks everyone for the support. Especially my crew Karen and Donny for always having everything ready for me and staying awake for hours outside in the cold rain while I slept in the warm car trying to regroup. Thanks Donny for running with me unexpectedly for a 9 mile section.

It's always running but it's some much more than runningโ€ฆ

My running/hiking stats since June 1st: 2017:
Miles: 3,296
Elevation: 661,733 ft.

Cute little guy I caught high on top the @massresort mountain ridge trail hike this weekend. He only stuck around for about 30 seconds, just enough to pop off a couple notes of his song and allow me to get a shot. #birdsofinstagram #birds #birdphotography #massanutten #virginiabirds #indigobunting
