After that horrible weekend and week last week I feel like I have come back good this week so far. I do not know what it was but I have been feeling good this week and also having a better time of it getting out the door.
I know working at such a great shop like TC Running has been a big lift to me. It is such a pleasure to have all the great people coming into the store and being able to help them out. Look for a little of my influence soon with our trail shoe section to get bigger as time goes by. I know that the amount of trail shoes one store sells is not much compared to road shoes but Adam and I hope to have a better than normal selection for people.
Or maybe it has something to do with the fact I signed up for the Madcity 100k road race which is two weeks from this Saturday ? I went around and around on what to do. There was one side of me saying I was not ready for this then there was the side saying to just do it and put no expectations on myself. What ever the reason I decided to do it. I knew it was going to work well as far as my work schedule and there was just something inside of me pulling me that way. I do not have a goal for the race other then to just have fun with it and get a good LONG training run out of it. With Sonya also running it will be fun to run with her for some of it. We have never been able to run a ultra together so it should be fun !!! I know they are doing a web cast on the race from there web site. So if you are interested go to the Madcity 100k web site and check it out.

Wednesday 3/26- Ran after work from work. I was not sure about this since I have only once run from there and I was going to be by myself in the dark. It all worked out good. I only took 2 wrong turns and in the end I was happy about it since I was feeling so good. It was a super nice night and I had super great tuns flowing on the ipod. I like the rolling hills by work and look forward to seeing much more as time goes by.

Friday 3/28- I ran from home down by the lakes with Evan and Summer riding her bike. I was so much fun to have the two of them with me on such a great afternoon. I look forward to more of this.
