Olympic Trials Bound

Someday I'll update the blog more regularly again, but for now I want to share how excited I am about heading to Eugene tomorrow! I'm going to spectate for the Olympic Track & Field Trials, staying with a bunch of fun ladies, and hanging out with tons of runners. I'm a huge fan girl and love cheering for others in general, and it'll be awesome to see track races on such a big stage.

Add the fact that I spent this past weekend running, volunteering, and spectating at Western States and you could say I'm riding high on running inspiration right now. I will definitely do a post about Western States soon, it's my favorite event and this year was better than ever.

All of this has come at the perfect time, too. I realize I didn't update my goal decision; I'm now training for Tamalpa Headlands 50K on August 27 and not for the SF Marathon. That's what my body and brain wanted right now, and I have no regrets on that decision. However, I was having a really rough training week before traveling to States, and I'm happy to say that a weekend surrounded by the ultra community left me feeling renewed both mentally and physically.

Happy July 4 weekend - I'll be back with more on States and the Trials soon!
