I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
Baby recliner comfort, WOD, and LeadvilleLiza
I saw this today on Facebook — which I check a lot these days while I’m nursing. (It’s easier to do than type one-handed blog entries.) It was on this blog site. (Swedish?) I think I saw the picture on the left a few days ago and thought uncharitable thoughts about red-and-black lady and her matching children — as Ruby rested comfortably on my padded belly. Honestly, if it wasn’t for not wanting to tote the extra pounds up and down the trails –and not having a new wardrobe budget, I’d probably stay baby recliner comfortable. Regardless, the lady on the right definitely seems to have her head on straight. I love the wrinkled sheet behind her. I could be friends with someone with wrinkled sheets like that.
In other news, Ruby has gained a full pound since delivery. I feel as proud as any prize-winning cow might. She’s out of newborn diapers and newborn-sized clothing. Yeah, I did that.
So I’ve got a core workout, an upper body workout, and 6-miles to run tonight. And a bit of uphill hiking on the treadmill. Good thing I eschewed sleep.
And did you see how Leadville isn’t a Hardrock qualifier after 2013?
“A note about the 2013 Leadville 100: The Leadville 100 includes many of the features that are important for a HR qualifier: high altitude, long climbs, potential for mountain weather, and more. However, the 2013 Leadville 100 ignored other traits of importance to the HR: environmental responsibility, support of the hosting community, and having a positive impact on the health of our sport. Because of timing, the 2013 LT100 will still be accepted as a qualifier for the 2014 HR. LT100 finishes will not be accepted as qualifiers for the 2015 HRH and beyond.”
