Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

Stay Strong!

Wow!  August just flew by!  School started this week, and tomorrow is the first day of September.  Where did the time go?!?

The beginning of the school year marks another season in our house.  Gone are the lazy, no-schedule summer days.  It's back to routine and a schedule.  Hopefully this week was an anomaly and not the norm because I am exhausted!  Not only did I start a strength training program and some serious speedwork, but throw in a hectic work schedule and keeping up a household and you've got some very  l-o-n-g  days!  It feels like a lot right now, but things will fall into place soon.  I am grateful for the extra day this weekend, though.  After getting caught up on work and stuff, I hope to get caught up on sleep

I hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend!

Happy August!

As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end.  July was a fantastic month full of many amazing, scenic Tahoe trail runs.  While there are still a few weeks before school starts, it's time to get back into a routine and start focusing on my big race this fall.  Look out, NYC!  November will be here before we know it, so it's time to start some serious speedwork and log some long runs on the roads!

Here's one big hoorah to a great summer!
