Project Reverb: 30 Days


30 Days:  They say it takes 30 days to make or break a habit.  What did you start?  What did you quit? 

I started eating Paleo. Specifically, no junk, no sweets Paleo, also known as The Whole 30

I read the book It Starts With Food. I acknowledged the fact that I had been unable to moderate my sugar intake. 

I took the plunge. What's 30 days out of my life? What did I have to lose?

It was eye-opening, fascinating and honestly? It wasn't that hard. 

I never went hungry. 

I had never felt this good, in so many ways.

This habit stuck.

Project Reverb: Inspiration


What inspired you this year? How do you think this inspiration will impact the year to come? 

Pacing Katie K on her third loop of The Wild Oak Trail 100 inspired me. Suddenly, my mind was intrigued with the possibility of doing a truly challenging ultra, maybe even another 100 miler.

I think I'm ready to tackle a hundred in 2014. Look out Vermont!

Diagnosis: Insanity!

Project Reverb: Brave

Brave: What was the bravest thing you did in 2013?

The bravest thing I did this year was toeing the line of the Laurel Highlands 70 Miler. I didn't think I would be able to finish, having struggled all Spring with my race nutrition and resulting cramping. 

Starting a race might not sound all that brave, but another failure would have crushed my running heart. There was a lot riding on this race.

Thank goodness for friends! They make it easier to be brave.
