It was a fairly boring day in our lives, we had many things to cross off the to-do list. It was also a rest day from running. Even though I think the rest was good for my legs I could tell my day just wasn’t quiet as good without my daily dose of endorphins.
I think life would be easier and it would fit my abilities better if I would just stick to half marathons (which I DO love), but there is something about the ultra that keeps calling to me.
Ultra Running Memes gets me…..
Cannon had school today and Emmy had a playdate with some of her little friends. It was nice to see some friends that I haven’t seen in forever.
The rest of the day was just grocery shopping and attempting to trip plan.
Originally we were supposed to go to Disneyland this fall but with Covid-19 that is obviously not going to happen. We then decided we wanted to still get out and do something so we planned a road trip to Lake Tahoe, the red woods and the California coast. Because it’s 2020 and we can’t have anything nice California is devastated by forest fires. The place we were supposed to stay in Tahoe is likely going to be closed and even getting across the state to the coast seems difficult and possibly dangerous.
I feel terrible for everyone on the west coast dealing with their states being on fire on top of a pandemic. I have been thinking about the firefighters a lot.
So now we are left with just a week to figure out what to do. Scrap the trip all together? Make a trip up to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone? Tour Utahs national parks? What would you do?
Emmy definitely represents my mood about all of this.
Do ultras call your name?
Any trips planned for this year?
