Can we say HILLS!
What I think comes next.
There were a few good suggestions on what I could have been thinking I "could" do next on my last post. I loved the "3 a day" comments. But what I was wondering "if I could" was,
Could I run for 100 days?
Is that insane?
Others have done it. There is a website.
Okay it doesn't seem like it's been updated since January 2009.
Do you think they came to their senses?
Okay that is a lot to
consider and weigh in with your opinions and thoughts.
Point to remember:
I have a 21k trail "challenge" race June 19th ~ doing it.
I have a 50k trail race July 10th ~ doing it.
If I use the websites "any run separated by 6 or more hours" I am already at 46 runs.
I could easily finish before the Ultra.
Let's hear what you think!
A final note:
Mel at Tall Mom on the Run is hosting a Scape Sunscreen Giveaway.
Can we talk sunscreen for a minute? I just had some worrisome news from my dermotologist. 4 out of 6 spots removed were "bad." I take full responsiblity for this. As a child my mother wasn't preached at about sunscreen like we are now. So when I was too little to do it, people weren't really told they should. Heck, people still smoked cigarettes without warning labels on them too!
It seems I was a child through an era of realization. Society realizing that the things we were doing were effecting the quaility of our lives. Unfortunately for my skin, the wake up didn't happen fast enough because I can remember putting baby oil on while I lay out in our back yard as a tween-ager. Yes, there were a couple years when I really did that! Combine that behavior with years and years of running. Oh, I wear sunscreen but when you run for an hour+ and wipe your face repeatedly guess what happens to your sunscreen? Yep, gone.
All that to tell you, you really need to hop over to Mel's and enter this giveaway! Today go do it now. You can always hop back here and catch up with me later. And if you win some great sunscreen you'll maybe be catching up with me while enjoying being just a little bit healthier.
Now go do it. You can thank me later!
