Just back from a mini-vacation with the family in Florida.
Of course we had to visit Disney World for the 20th plus time. Not sure how we spent 10+ hours at the Magic Kingdom theme park, I guess time flies when you are having fun.
Here is a pic of the kiddo with "Ariel" from the Little Mermaid after waiting 50 minutes to get her autograph. The weird thing was two adult men in front of us waiting 50 minutes as well to get a picture with her as well. Hmm, is it me or is that kinda of strange, I think I would rather be waiting 50 minutes to ride the space mountain roller coaster.
So this weekend is the final installment of the Illinois Grand Slam trail series. The Farmdale 33 miler. More fun on the trails. Not sure how it is going to go again, because I have switched to some Cuban pastries I got from Florida for energy food instead of my standard apple danishes. So will see how it all works out.
But just going to have some fun out there like I did two weeks ago at the Hobo 50k and hopefully hold on to my 4th place status in the race series among the men.
Then two weeks later get ready for the Lakefront 50 mile road ultra. This might be easier than a trail 50 miler but will hurt a little more.
So on a last note, here is a little endurance inspiration. David Goggins is a Ultra Runner/Endurance BAD ASS. He just completed Kona and broke the course record at the 150 mile McNaughton trail race earlier this year. I was running the 100 mile at the same time and saw his film crew throughout the race. So here is video documenting his journey along with his t-shirt saying "Show No Weakness", gotta luv that!
