I’m headed out today for 30 odd hours of Soloness. I’m off to Gateway Colorado for my first mountain marathon. Annie and Troy are staying home because the marathon is a loop and there are no spots to spectate or cheer. 10+ hours of driving is a lot to put Annie through.
I tried to convince some friends to come, but when it seemed like everyone had plans I decided to just make it a solo trip. Being a mom, and a wife, and a friend, and a training partner, I don’t often get a lot of time alone for more than a couple hours.
I’m excited to get a little time away with my thoughts. I’ve felt like a little time to think was in the cards for awhile now. I’m also excited to be able to drive with the volume cranked up on the radio. So if you see a VW wagon on I-70 with the windows down, the sunroof down, and the music blaring…that’s me.
I’ll be thinking about all of you out there tomorrow.
Oh, and I wanted to send a HUGE “Thank You” to PowerSox who sent me two pairs of socks from their new line. I am going to wear them during the marathon. Powersox makes AWESOME socks if you haven’t worn a pair…you should!
