Ok first it’s been almost a year since my last post so let’s summarize a few things: yes I have still been running and have still done at least 1 marathon or ultra a month if not more and the streak is still alive from 2008! Yes I got engaged! Well to be precise in 2011 I happened to fall in love with the most amazing man ever! A few other notable things: I started a new job…. Then another new job. I moved- twice. I traveled to China and India. I received my one and only DNF (P2P 100 miler). I attended my 10 year high school reunion. I started playing ice hockey. Only went to the ER once and didn’t break any major bones or have to take any prolonged time off. I helped to put on a 3,000 person race. Adopted a baby fish named Beta. Was a brides maid in 2 of my greatest friends weddings. Now let’s sum up the races you missed- with pictures of course:
Mel and Jash!

Beautiful course with tons of waterfalls and tons of elevation to go with it!
April 2011 Lumberjack 100

Went out to Carmel, CA with my AZ running girls for this beautiful beach side adventure!
