Tuna Run 200 - 2018 Race Report

This was my third year running the Tuna Run 200 relay race from Raleigh to Atlantic Beach, so by now I’m feeling pretty pro at it. Sleep deprivation? Check. Running fast for the team? Check. Snoring in a van? Check. Smelling like goats? Check. Making some new memories with great friends? Check check check.

Fleet Feet Saucony Demo Event

To celebrate the release of the new Saucony Guide ISO 2 and Saucony Triumph ISO 5 running shoes, Saucony and Fleet Feet Carrboro hosted a demo event at one of the weekly Fleet Feet/Vecino Brewing Co. pub run events

It’s always fun to try out something new - new shoes, a new running group, a new running route - and it’s especially fun to have that documented! A couple weeks ago Saucony and Fleet Feet Carrboro hosted a demo event of the new Saucony Guide ISO 2 and the Triumph ISO 5 in conjunction with the regular Wednesday night pub run and half/full marathon training program run.

October 2018 Goals

And Ryder parties with some pineapples.

“Ughhhh I’m so behind on my goals posts,” I lamented to my best friend recently.

“Liz!! Those are my favorite ones!”

“What, the goals posts?!”

“Yeah!”

“Well dang. Now I feel guilty that I haven’t been posting them.”

So yeah! Here’s a goals post. Finally.

Becoming Ultra: How I Started Trail Running and Signed Up for an Ultramarathon

I didn’t always consider myself a trail runner, but now, on the brink of becoming a trail ultramarathoner, I realize how trail running has always been important to me.

It has been a ridiculously long time since I’ve been active on this blog, and yes, I miss it, but on the other hand it’s been thrilling to have such a fast-paced summer.

So if I haven’t been blogging, then what the heck have I been up to?! (The responsible and mostly true but boring answer is I’ve been busy with my job - technology moves fast and creating innovative technology means I have to move even faster.) But the more exciting thing to say is I’ve been running trails.

And Ryder wears stars and stripes sunglasses

How cool is my dog Ryder? He's so cool I taught him to wear sunglasses! It was a struggle, but he wore his American-styled shades just long enough for me to fire off a few photos. In honor of 4th of July this month's photo shoot was all about the red, white, and blue and Ryder never looked so all-American!

125 Gators...126 Gators...127 Alligators in Okefenokee Swamp

When I decided to kayak 10 miles out to a platform campsite in the middle of a Georgia swamp I figured I'd see some gators. I had no idea I'd see well over a hundred!

127 gators. That's how many alligators I'd seen since I set off from the Suwanee Canal entrance of Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia at 10am on April 14. I know because I kept count.
