The most delicious cheetos in the world!

I ran my first ultra today! YAY! It was the 6 hour option at St. Pat's 24 Hour.
9 times up this hill sucked. 
 I finished 9 laps, which got me 27.5 miles in 5:45.
 I could have ran a .25 mile out-and-back for those last 15 minutes, but I said screw it. After 27.5 miles, I just wanted to be done.

In most of these photos, I"m clutching a bag of half- eaten cheetos. Let me just say cheetos taste AMAZING when you're near the end of an ultra. Like, I was groaning as I munched. SO. FREAKING. GOOD.

 My husband was awesome- he paced me my last mile, and got all these "actions shots" (and in some, you can see despite the smile how badly I wanted to be done!!!).

Being a small race, I was one of only 2 females in the 6 hour run (most of the participants did the 24!). Which meant I got 2nd place by defualt. HA! 
Tomorrow, I'll be helping install new flooring in our kitchen. I might get stuck on the ground. It will be interesting to see how sore I am after that many miles on trails.

(That's one way to make sure I get my last long run in before the Veteran's Marathon, isn't it?)

How was your weekend? Any brags? Fun stuff? 


  1. Woo hoo! Congrats on your ultra and AG placement! Did they have fun aid stations on course? I loved eating potatoes at my ultra. LOL.

  2. Wow, how awesome!! I used to say I was never doing an ultra but now I can kind of see it... someday... maybe!!
