Paleo Fail-eo: Did Cave Women Run Ultras Anyway???

Shoot! I thought eating like a caveman was going to make me uber skinny and twice as fast….crap and double crap! Twinkie time!

I am so mad right now just mentioning this subject matter that if I weren’t afraid my five year old could read this, I’d probably swear. Not any of those nice, neat swear words either. I’d let fly some of the really awful sounding ones like they used in “Breaking Bad”.

Here’s the situation. I’m just thinking back to a year ago when I was feeling so tired and looking like a near forty year old woman trying to keep up with thirty year old women on the ultra circuit. Around this time I visited my physician to have my thyroid levels checked. After describing to her this God awful exhaustion I was experiencing, she and I had a nice conversation about what she referred to as my “lifestyle”.

“I really recommend you try the Paleo Diet”, said my TriCare paid primary care physician. “We’re all going to experience slower…

Back to Bondi 3: Happy Trails with Hoka Wishes & Marshmallow Dreams

This made me laugh so hard I thought some of my purple cows might like it!

Crazy Ultra Mother Runner

I’m feeling good today after my 10 mile pre-dawn run with the lab and that makes me nervous. In my OCD world, I understand all the way down to my itsy-bitsy, microscopic cells that I have absolutely no right to feel good, as crappy slow-with-snotty-nose as I run lately. It’s not logical.

And I am all about logical. (Yes, I could hardly type that with a straight face.)

Frankly, I’m happy to the point of outright and flamboyant giddiness and the happier I get, the more convinced I am that something has completely shorted out in my brain. I should be spending my time today worrying, fretting and stewing over my upcoming 12 hour ATR on a real-deal technical trail, not skipping around the house whistling ‘All About That Bass’ and shaking my skinny white girl behind to the ‘No Treble’ part.

Do I not know how bad things are?
