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

Updated Race Schedule

If you've been following along, you might have noticed that I'm working hard to catch up on my April happenings!

I was supposed to run the Reno 5000 half marathon today.  But, I really don't want to end up like Kobe Bryant (click here if you don't follow basketball) -- ouch!  So, I decided to officially put myself on the DL (disabled list for those who don't follow baseball).  My left achilles is still literally my Achilles' heel (my weak spot for those who aren't up on Greek mythology).  It's more than a nag now; it's a pain!

Even though I didn't race today, I was still able to be a part of this super fun event by helping out at the Mile 6 aid station.  It was so fun to cheer on the runners, especially since most of them had their names on their bibs.  Great idea, Will & Shanna

As you can see, it was a beautiful day!  Perfect racing conditions!  And we were ready for thirsty runners.

Thanks again to the Dolan Automotive Group for the awesome support!

Lucky for us we got to practice our H2O hand-offs!

Also, congrats to all the runners!

Back to my race schedule ... to avoid a serious achilles injury, I am going to take it easy for a while The rest of this month will be all about recovery -- easy running, icing, and stretching.  My plan is to be good to go for my June races.  I've got my work cut-out for me!

New & Improved Schedule:

April - Reno 5000 Half
May - Mom's on the Run 5K
June - DeCelle Relay
& Reno 5000 Half
July - Kings Beach 10K
August – New Reno 10-miler!
September - Reno 5000 Half
October - Bizz Johnson 50K & Trick-or-Treat 5K

One last thing ... if you haven't ever volunteered at a race before, I highly recommend it.  It's way fun Plus, it feels good to give back!
