Pic of the Day: The Final Countdown

Carbon Canyon Park (North Ridge Trail)

This morning’s run: Carbon Canyon Park (North Ridge Trail).











In only 32 days (1 year later), I will find myself back at THE place that sent me away, perhaps defeated for that day, but with a renewed spirit and soon-to-be best friend.

Going back will be an important milestone – a second chance to finish what I started, and of course, to celebrate one year with someone I absolutely adore and admire.

Having said this, it is ALL focus from here on out until race day. 30-day plank and ab challenge in full effect, daily foam rolling, early morning running, a full night’s sleep (gasp), and finally, putting together the perfect Halloween costume for the contest.  I want this race so badly and I am willing to be on my best behavior until then. I just know it will be worth it.

    Hey Tracy, as many have been doing, I’ve been following your progress before today and today, race day. I’ll just say this: You’re a fantastic runner, and you will cross the 100-mile finish line victoriously in due time. It’s a process and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you’ll succeed. Today was a great day from an experience perspective, which will only propel you to the podium. Keep the Faith… believe. :^)

    • I have always said that getting to the finish line will take every single ounce of energy and and determination. On this day, I truly felt I could barely get through the finish around mile 20. It just wasn’t my day and I wasn’t about to spend 100 miles out there suffering, just to inflict more pain and potential injuries. Live to run another race. Thanks J!
