Weekend Inspiration

1) The Hardrock 100 Endurance Run took place this weekend.  100 miles.  Almost 34,000 feet of climbing.  Average elevation of over 11,000 feet.  I doubt I'll ever line up at the start up this one, but I would love to be in good enough shape to meet the minimum qualifications someday.

2) I had a lot of yesterdays like this.

3) Have you heard of Diana Nyad?  She has twice attempted to swim from Cuba to Florida.  That's 100 miles of swimming.  At once.  I barely covered that distance last year over the course of the entire year.  She will be making a 3rd attempt sometime in the near future.  I should also mention that she's 62 years old.  You can follow here blog here.

4) Get thyself to the gym.  It can't be any worse than this:

5) Local Portland peeps - Chrissie Wellington will be in town at the end of August.  Head on over to Athletes Lounge for a meet & greet with Chrissie.  I wonder if she'll sign my pregnant belly?  More details here.
