This Year's Challenge

So, until I am able to get back out there on a long trail (which may be the PCT in 2010), I continue to find semi-local challenges to keep me in the shape I was on the Appalachian Trail. For this year, I am biting off more than I can chew, but I am going to try to swallow it WHOLE!!!! I have decided I want to be a Leadwoman! My friends are all trying to be Ironmen, so I thought I would stick with the metal idea and go for Lead! Also, I am an over achiever and have to do a variety of crazy races and teach myself something new with each challenge. So, here is the list of events going on for this year's challenge:

Leadville Trail 100 Run

Saturday – Sunday, August 22-23, 2009

As some of you know, I have attempted the Leadville Trail 100 Run before. It was 2007 and I got to see the entire course. This time around I plan on doing better than 2007 and thus decided it was okay to throw the extra events in along with the trail run. My husband feels I am biting off more than I can chew, but like I said above, I plan on swallowing it WHOLE!! Without challenges in my life, I am just ordinary and my mother taught me to always be

E X T R A O R D I N A R Y!!!!!

So, here goes another year of fun and adventure! Wish me luck world as I conquer the world this time around and swallow LEAD WHOLE!!!
