Way Too Cook 50K

Today is the day! Its the day I have been training for! Its not my first Ultra event but it IS my first Ultra Marathon!

Today is the Way Too Cool 50K in Cool, CA!

I am writing this post early so as you read it on Saturday I will be RUNNING! I have 8.5 to complete 33 miles on trail! Hubby and I have been training our butts off for months now. I have never been this excited for a race before. Not even the Ironman.

I am an Ultra Athlete. I have an ability to go and go and go. Not sure where it cam from but its the way i function. I didn't train very hard for my Ironman. I rode, ran and swan consistently. BUT I have really TRAINED for this race! I think that is why I am so stoked about it!

Tonight (friday night) we are going to Auburn Running Store to get out packets and swag bags, then headed to Auburn Ale House to a Paste FEAST with about 10 or 15 other runners who are also racing tomorrow!

I am bringing my iPhone with me on the train and plan to document the day! with both photos and videos! I did this on my IM and it was a blast! People loved the Facebook updates through out the race! I wont be able to upload anything live since we will be nearly 100% without signal the whole time, but I will upload it all Monday!

Sunday I have a Wedding Show to participate in. I have a booth that I have to man for 5 hours…so 33 miles Saturday then 5 hours on my feet Sunday…I think Monday will be a rest day!

If there is a way to track a runner I will post it here! Incase anyone feels so inclined to follow our progress!

So Wish us luck and limited blisters!


  1. That is SO SO SO awesome! I cnt wait to hear all about it. I'll definitely be thinking of you. Go get em girl.

  2. Best of luck on what is sure to be an incredible feat! I'll be living vicariously through your running...since I'm down for the count with a stress fracture! Be safe and run strong! Can't wait to hear how it goes :) xoxo {av}

  3. Good luck! But by the time you get this comment, the race will be over, right? So maybe I should say I'm sure you both did WELL and I'm looking forward to your pics! (And I have to say, too, that when I saw the title of your blog post, I was all ready to read about 'cooking,' so the race content surprised me a titch ~ LOL! Sorry!)

    Love, Mom.
