    good Eagle Island 3 mi

    Did a lap with my friend Frank who came into town for the race and a few short loops with people just to keep them motivated.

      Glad you got to hang out with Frank! Wayne brought the little girls out to cheer on Emma.

      That's so nice of you to brag for her. Good luck to women around you with that man cold. My husband has a man cold right now too.

    Glad I got out today. It was so warm we could have been in booty shorts and no shirt! I'm also glad my watch crapped out today so that I could reset it so that won't happen on Friday.

      You're one of the toughest people I know!! Looking forward to this adventure and lots of fun times!!! This will be my 8th time towing the line at a 100. 1 DNF at my last time racing this exact one. 6 finishes. This weekend to be determined. But one thing's for sure.... I want to give what I've got, no matter how unprepared I am and to make some wonderful new memories with you and our fellow crazies in the process!!! I'm looking forward to our hug when you pass me!!!! 😁

    great Mt Heinen from Irish Creek 10.1 mi 05:05 30:09 pace

    Good times with Christie and Derek. We had more gain in 5 miles than we will have in 50 miles at the race next week! Beautiful day to be out.

      Yay! I'm so excited the gym in Kuna has a sauna. I'm going to try sitting in it for a while after yoga on Monday.

      I think it makes a difference at races. It teaches your body to sweat efficiently, trains your mental toughness, and it's easy! My heart rate gets up to the same level as spin just sitting on my butt.

      I still have 7 paid for classes at Hot Yoga and noticed my body was much more adapted to the hot weather when I was doing that and the dry sauna sessions. I'm going to head back in there next week I think and start using up my sessions to get my body ready in case it's warm at Buffalo! I got a sunburn my first year there. Anything is possible,
