I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
Fleet Feet Sports’ Western States Trail Summit and meLiza
I will be fielding all the questions about stress fractures, immobilization boots, training on anti-gravity treadmills, aqua jogging, and curses. (Sports bras?) I’ll feel immensely silly sitting next to these running gods in my big boot (I would have felt awkward without the boot), but perhaps the mere mortal perspective will be a valuable one. I mean, I’m a good math teacher (didn’t know that was also one of the many many certifications I have and don’t use, did you?) because math didn’t come all that easily to me. Work with me for the analogy: I will field questions about ultra running well because I’m not a running genius. Okay, not the best analogy. Think I should seed the audience with questions for me? “Liza, what are your thoughts on Saltines and soda during races?” “Do you always ask your pacers to hug you when things get hard during a race? “Immodium?” Send your suggestions and I’ll put them on index cards.
PS. How about: “What is that shiny shoe you’re wearing on your left foot?” 😉
