getting back at it

OK so it seems that we have neglected our blog. It's true. Life has taken us in so many directions something had to give.
Well, I will try my best to bring the blog back to life and share running antidotes, race day mantra's and other training and life's important lessons learned.

We have a weekend full of racing adventures planned. This Saturday is the White River 50 Mile trail race, down near Crystal Mountain, WA. Iliana will be running her first 50 miler! She is well prepared, nervous, excited, and scared all at the same time. I'll be there to help her throughout the day crewing her. Which means I drive around like crazy trying to catch her at a few aid stations for a brief minute or less wish her well and encourage her to get going on towards the finish. The race starts at 6:30 AM.
On Sunday I'll be racing at the Whisky Dick Triathlon, Vantage to Ellensburg, WA. This weekend will no doubt test both of our abilities, between driving done on Friday afternoon, all over Saturday, come home unload, repack head to Ellensburg, wake early head to Vantage, back to Ellensburg, rest a little then drive back home for a nice restful Sunday evening.
Wish us well.
