I hope you're having a great summer!!
I apologize for the extended absence. Sometimes life gets in the way and it definitely has the last few months. Over the next few days I plan on posting several blog posts updating the world with what's been going on lately. Please be patient and stay tuned.
In the meantime, I need to get some packing done for an epic running weekend coming up. Yes, I realize it is technically tri season, but no bikes or goggles for me this weekend. My current running mileage record for a 48 hour period is 57.7 miles when I did the San Francisco Marathon last year followed by 31.5 miles at Tracy's Fat Ass the next day. My plan is to beat that record this weekend. First up is the Christmas In July race where I plan on doing a warm up 5k followed by the 12 hour race (my first ever time based ultra). Assuming I am still able to walk after 12 hours straight, I'll be following that up with the 10k Saturday night to keep my legs loose since I have the Rock 'n Roll Chicago Half Marathon bright and early Sunday morning.
If you're interested in following me at Christmas in July, they are planning a live video link which will be available at http://christmasinjuly24hour.com/Lisle/LIVE.aspx. Don't expect to see me running by the screen, this weekend is more about endurance than it is about speed.
Check back soon - I have some exciting news to share as soon as I get this weekend's packing complete!
