      "Finish and don't die" are great goals. :-) This has happened a lot to me, So now I run races here the RD treat everyone the same and so do their volunteers. Awesome 50k!!!

      It feels good to cross a finish line again, doesn't it? It was honestly hard for me in the final miles of my marathon this weekend since I'm so out of shape but what kept me going was a sign that said, "One day you will not be able to accomplish this goal. Today is not that day!! " As you know life can change without notice. I try not to take things for granted. I was happy to high five kids, enjoyed seeing all the people cheering us runners on and it was wonderful to cross a finish line once again

      I told Christie this morning I should become an aid captain at the Frenzy and set out crusty PBJs and dried up quesadillas for the front of the pack and break out the GOOD STUFF for the back of the pack!! It really is too bad, everyone pays the same entry fee.

      I wonder if that puts a lot of stress on your organs if it's the same day since I'd think you're dehydrated going in already? I'm not sure. Just was curious.

      Platelets are produced in your bone marrow mostly. Not sure how that would be effected. I drink like a fish so dehydration isn't really an issue.

      I was super annoyed at those two!! Let's do this again AND let's add some track work! I love when you come up with specific workouts like this!! I like pushing myself and having specific goals to target and it's fun to do it frequently enough we can compare efforts to see how flipping AWESOME we are getting!!!!

      Thats why I like it so much! Both of my best 100 milers had a heavy dose of this. One was Western States and it was hot, which helped. But the one that really helped was in March when the highs were only around 60.
