Eight More Days!

No running for me this morning. When I looked at the clock it said, 5am and my body said YA RIGHT!! Five hours of sleep doesn’t cut it, so I guess I will be hitting the gym tonight.

This morning I was inspired by Meghann and Kath’s bowl of yogurt and cereal.

monday 037

  • 1 container of Fresh and Easy Yogurt
  • Handful blueberries
  • Half banana
  • Tbsp flax
  • Few tbsp of Bobbi’s Granola Greatness
  • Handful of Puffins
  • Tbsp of PB
  • Drizzle of Honey

This bowl was perfect and I think it should hold me over better then a plain old bowl of cereal.

Today I wanted to share with you all the race that I have been working on.


So… the Wild West Relay is quickly approaching…actually, it’s in 8 days!

For those of you who don’t know about WWR, here’s the lowdown:

  • 200 miles, 24 hours
  • 12 runners per team
  • 36 legs total
  • 3 legs per runner
  • From Fort Collins, CO to Steamboat Springs, CO
  • 2 SUV’s packed with granola bars, peanut butter, stinky people
  • Lots ‘o hills
  • Lots ‘o elevation
  • Really, really challenging terrain but it promises to pretty amazing

We gathered runners from all over the blogosphere and then some! Here’s our team, the Dangerous Dozen!! 10 girls and 2 guys!


We also have two of my lovely friends driving out with me to volunteer for us, thanks Sandra and Carly 🙂

I am runner # 2 so my legs are 2, 14 & 26. Check out these maps! The elevation is CRAZY! I will be running a total of 19.1 miles.





Being the Captain has been a  hella stressful little overwhelming, but fun at the same time. From planning the packing list, hotels, transportation, and all the race details I haven’t had to much time to actually think about the RACE!! I guess I am not looking at this as a race but as a time to see COLARADO for the first time and meet some pretty amazing people!

We leave this Wednesday night for a 15 hour road trip to Fort Collins, CO. I am so excited and I know that everything is in place and now I can focus on the RUN!

Anyone have any ideas about how our team can creatively uniform itself?? Crazy sox? Hats? We need ideas!!!

Hubby’s Random Fact: Every day, the average person swallows about a quart of snot.

WOW, that’s crazy have a great Thursday Friends!
