Happy 50th to me!

As promised to myself many, many years ago, I will be celebrating my birthday by running a mile for each of my 50 years on this earth: Baker Trail Ultra Challenge

I'm not quite as prepared as I had originally hoped to be at this point but still, this marker is important to me for many reasons and will be even that much more special to have my brother run with me.

Life is good.

I can't wait to real how it went for you!

P.S. I love the photo at the top--it's you, I guess--but couldn't help but notice that you're running DOWNhill. Ha.

LOL! I wish! That's my daughter and yep,going downhill but you should have seen how far UP we had to run! Actually, I like uphill running better because I'm always afraid I'm going to blow out a knee. Ouch!

I wouldn't dare run with my knee problems, but you are so, so right. If I could hike uphill only, I would love it, but those downhill stretches leave me swollen and in pain.
