First, Run Faster Mommy is having -what I would liek to call- an anti-GI problem give-a-way. She's giving away all kinds of electroylte gels, snacks, etc. Looks really neat... check it out :)
Also, race #2 of the week is coming up... Boulder, CO is this week! The issues/lessons to keep in mind...
1) Boulder is a high-altitude race (~5K ft)! I did Park City a few weeks ago (~7K ft) and I could definitely feel the altitude. How to help?
~ HYDRATE! This definitely helps to prevent altitude sickness
~ Swimming... to get your lungs used to controlled breathing
2) I'm Sick! I've been sick since getting back from Erie this weekend. I think its just some sort of Flu. But I have 2 Drs that each have me on a different anitbiotic. I should say that one Dr. told me NOT to run this weekend... I tried to explain why that wasn't an option, but she didn't seem to understand or care. Oh well..
3) This is the last back-to-back weekend of marathons before my back-to-back Sat/Sun races the first weekend in Oct!!! Scary...
I will be posting the race ratings from Erie today :)
