This is my back...


This is my back.
This is my back one week and two days after the Ultra.
This is my back one week and two days after the Ultra without bodyglide, Body Butter or Vaseline.
This is my back one week and two days after the Ultra without bodyglide, Body Butter or Vaseline after 33 miles on the trails.

Don't let this happen to you.


This public service announcement was brought to you by my failing memory, race day nervousness and a seemingly twisted desire to inflict pain upon myself.



Something I didn't forget was to bring along some recovery socks! 
But mine are completely shot.  I need a new pair.
Marcia at running off at the mouth is hosting a Sigvaris Recovery sock giveaway. 
I am all about compression.  This proclamation coming from the former naturalist runner.
I have seen the light and compression is the way to longer distances with less down time.
Head over and visit Marcia who is not really on a runnbatical because she is still running! 
If you know her race schedule you know why.

  12. Dang, that looks PAINFUL. I bet that REALLY stung with that first shower post-race. I know I'm cringing out loud in the shower with those chafe wounds from the dreaded sports bra. Seems like I always miss a spot, or discover a new spot that requires anti-chafe cream.

    Don't worry... it'll soon be a battle wound to be proud of. :)
