A few challenges stood in the way of my racing at all. Injuries? Nope! Maybe tired legs from the 100 miler, but the biggest challenge it seemed was finding child care for my two kiddos while I raced. Lucky for me I have a wonderful boyfriend and some close friends who helped out the day of the race.

Running in Bellingham has been very helpful for my speed and hill strength. James and I have been doing tempo runs on the interurban trail and the waterfront trail, with some good workouts running up Sehome hill, Taylor Hill and the Chuckanuts. Can't wait to get out there tomorrow at 5am!!!
