Run!

Rambling On 21

I haven’t rambled in a while.  😛

I’m so glad it’s Thursday but I needed more time in this week.  Does that make sense?  I may have over extended myself in November and didn’t quite figure it out until it was too late.    I also didn’t manage my time too well.  That’s all on me.  And it’s not like I was spending it running.

I had an interview today.  Second time I’ve thrown my name in the ring for something in a little over a month.  This is a leap.  I want it.  So of course, before my interview I realize I forgot to print off an extra resume.  Then just before I go in I notice a huge hole in my new heels.  WTH?!  So, of course, that’s on my mind for most of the interview- keep your foot angled in a way that hides the hole.  Grrrrr.

Run Laughlin is this Saturday and I’m super bummed to miss it for the second year.  I’ve never been a bucket list race kind of person but I really want to do this race.  If you’re in the area, you still can and save 20% with BIBRAVE20.  Then tell me all about it.  😉

Not that my leg could handle 13 miles right now.  I took 7 days off.  No, wait….8!  I just had to count on my fingers.  That’s not a good sign.  Maybe I need some sleep.  I haven’t been sleeping well either.  Too wired.  See what even missing my measly running miles does to me???

I am so behind on your blogs-I’ve read, I just need to comment.  I think my computer and browser hate me right now, I have maybe 30 tabs open?   It’s ridiculous.  My plan to get all squared away by end of day Thursday.  I can do it!  🤞

Ever run a race in 2 states?

How about 2 times zones?

I first heard about Run Laughlin about 2 years ago.  It first jumped out at me because it was one of the places we would vacation or drive by as a child.  If there was a lake nearby, odds are we spent some time there at some point.  It sounded like a great trip for me and my dad for memory lane but I couldn’t make it work with my schedule for 2016.   Boo.  Sadly, it’s not in the pocketbook in 2017 either- but I can dream right?

LAUGHLIN

I mean the race boasts views of Lake Mojave, the Colorado River, the Heritage Trail, the Davis Dam and the Black Mountains.  Lake Mojave and the Colorado River take me right back to childhood- I grew a up a lake baby- swimming before I could walk.   Family vacations were spent in Nevada and Arizona but I haven’t been back in years.  More like decades.  😛

The race starts and finishes in Laughlin, Nevada but miles 8 and 9 take you over the Davis Dam… and into Arizona.  How cool is that?   And because Arizona remains on Mountain Standard Time all the time- the time on your watches and phones may get screwy.  While I think this is equally cool- the mileage data nerd in me wonders what it does to your mile splits? 🤔  But it gives you an awesome story to tell!


Even better- if you are looking for a last minute half marathon PR for 2017- this course boasts a net elevation drop of 433′.   Now there’s a good hill in the beginning but that just makes things fun right?

Dang, now I wish I was running this even more.    Hmmmmm.
