Home Again, Fasted Run, R2R?
|Bridge Crossing During 3 Day Back Country Hike (RMNP in CO)|
We've been back home since October 1 after taking a four month RV vacation and even though RV'ing is a fun adventure, there are nice things about being home.
- Seeing friends
- Good wifi
- My washing machine and dryer

I'm trying something new that I used to do a lot - fasted running (not eating before my morning run). All I thought about during today's run was food, but that will pass as I get used to this. It would be nice if I didn't have to eat so much during a race, but I may only eat less during training runs and then take in the usual amount of gels during races. Not only that, but I've been eating fewer carbs and more healthy fats like avocados and coconut butter.

I've been talking up doing a rim to rim (R2R) hike and I can hardly believe this, but my husband and his sister didn't laugh in my face as hard as I thought they would when I said that we need to go on this 20 plus mile hike together.
This week I turn the big 5-0 and last week my husband (his blog) and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary! It's been a fun year and now I'm looking forward to what's next. In running news, I'm increasing my running miles for a future race (don't have one picked out yet, but I'm up to 5 miles at a time now). I've added in more lunges and squats, too, because I want to be ready for a possible 2016 R2R hike!
Do you have a special goal for an upcoming birthday or have you heard of a birthday goal that inspired you? I like the idea of running the number of miles that match your age.
