When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.

The heart of the difference is not ability or even talent, but desire

The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

Rucky Chucky cancelled

What a bummer!!! Besides that i really wanted to run this particular race, was looking forward to a get-away weekend, to see my friends and to have nice weather, the new date (June 10) is not convinient, so the fee is lost, but worst is - my air-fair is non-refundable. I totally understand the RD, there was a land-slide and the Park system had revoked the license for the race, nothing to do with Mather Nature. I am not upset, but kind of bummed out. I will try to get into Chuckunut 50k north of Seattle, but not even sure if I want to. May be I should use it to rest and better run AR50? Chuckunut is cool, but as I said, I am not a fan to repeat races. I am thinking...

It is seriously snowing here, and will be for another couple of days. It looks beautiful! But the roads are treterous. I ahve to figure out where to do my long runs this weekend...

I almost died yesterday on hill repeats (6 of them) and maxed out on my HR. But I made it, what is good. My shins hurt and I had a foot drop (compartment acting), not too bad though, pushed through.

I just hope Zane Grey won't get cancelled!!! Or I'll go visit Angie and Johnny anyway:) Man, these money losses really suck, like I am robbing my family...OK, no complains, I am cool, everybody's healthy, it's a minor setback. Breathe in - breathe out...Go work:)


  1. Bummer.Thanks for the info.

  2. Aww, that sucks. So much crazy unpredictability goes into racing! Hope you find a new one that will be just as fun.

  3. Shame about the cancellation. Hope you find another race!

  4. What a bummer. If you go to Chuckanut, you can stop for a visit on the way!

  5. Sorry about the cancellation and the hills. Didn't you say they were your friends?

  6. Or you could run boring one mile loops in the middle of the night.

  7. Sorry to hear that. That's really bad luck, and as you said, there's no way fighting Mother Nature.

    Be very careful on the road. You can get injured very easily on bad surface conditions.

  8. Oh, no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, the incoming winter storm will help Zane Grey...and if it is cancelled, then you'll just drive south instead of north, and I'll show you Sabino Canyon...
