I HAVE THE BEST BOYFRIEND EVER!!!!!The best pacer & boyfriend ever. Andy Kumeda. I love you Sunshine ;)
Dear Catra...after this weekend, I respect and admire you more than ever. I've always known that you're a good runner, much better than I am, but had no idea to what level until running with you for 19 hours. I really had a good time, and wish that I could've been a better pacer. Unfortunately, like it did with many who were also out there, the heat and course took its toll on me too. I tried my best to keep my issues from you, since I did not want them to impact your race, but it was hard. Looking back, there would've been no way I could've turned around and done what I did again -- no way. I haven't had a race zap me that hard like that ever...
Today I went out to Mission Peak for a run. I feel pretty damn good after running the Ohone 100 miler. I did have a bladder infection which got worse after the race. Having to work Monday was no fun. I must of went up and down the steps at Whole Foods 30 times that day to use the bathroom. Yesterday was a little better. Today I thought ok it's going on day 3 and I'm taking cipro which usually kills it. I ran and when I was heading down the trail I stopped to pee and there was blood, darn this bladder. I'm hoping one more day on Cipro I will be better. It's been almost a year since my last infection which was on the PCT. I pee'd blood for 3 days until I was able to go off trail in Mammoth.
It's the down hills that bother it. I hope I feel much better tomorrow.
Me out on the trail today. I miss being out on the trail. The trails have a whole new meaning, now that Andy's little feet have touched them.
