Leading up to last weekend it had been a long time since I raced.  I did Condor 25K in October and the Georgia Death Race in March.  The last couple years I really haven't raced much and that's largely because I've had a few injuries.  While I think everything is finally on the mend, that doesn't change the past.  And the past couple years have left me really missing trail racing.  Not just the competitive aspect, but the community aspect of spending all day on the trails with friend and then getting to hang out at the finish line.  And that's what lead me to run Peterson Ridge Rumble 40M last weekend.  I should say thanks now to Sean Meissner for putting on such great event (and for letting me sign up late).  Also, thank to all the volunteers out there helping with the race because it wouldn't happen without you!

Having spent the past two weekends camping, in Pinnacles National Park and at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterrey, I have had quite a full plate during the weekdays. I wanted to have a present mindset to best enjoy the beauty and adventure of Pinnacles and the chaos and wildness of Sea Otter but in order to do that, I had to make sure that I took care of all of my responsibilities before Friday each week. If you’ve never heard of Pinnacles National Park, it’s a magnificent place filled with incredible trailrunning amongst massive rock formations and views of soaring condors. If you’ve never heard of the Sea Otter Classic, it is regarded as the largest cycling festival in the world and I attended with friends of mine from here at Cal Poly. For their individual draws, I wanted to be present when I was camping in Pinnacles and hanging out at Sea Otter, which led my weeks to be filled with many things to get done. There were a few moments where I was on the verge of becoming overwhelmed and stressed but by applying mindfulness lessons and the all-important tool of to-do lists I was able to stay focused and accomplish what I needed to get done.

This is my seventh Marathon des Sables, and it took me three days to write this story. Three days of heat, sand, wind and miles of stony plateau. Three days of acclimatization, digestion really, of what the desert had in store.
