Let the fun begin: Tahoe Triple

Running

Awesome progress on one of our latest (top secret!) products. It is so exciting that I am having a hard time sleeping. With the reduced sleep schedule, excitement, lack of running I am starting to turn into a lump kept alive by caffeine! But no really folks: we are excited, we are bug eyed, we just can’t stop the excitement dance.

Talking about lumps: I can’t run when I don’t have a race goal. I looked at my racing schedule for previous years and realized there was a big correlation I ignored last year: race schedule drives the running. So in that spirit: I am registering for the Tahoe Triple in September. My first attempt was pathetic but I learned so much; well actually I learned a single lesson: in the great words of my friend Stowe: you can not will your body across the finish line, you need to train. Well here we are on the road to training for the Tahoe Triple. Any takers? It is just 3 marathons in 3 days. One marathon a day. Great scenery. Fantastic crew!
It is immensely fun, eye opening, insane, fantastic, scary, incredible all at the same time.

I will have a support crew this time because it actually makes a difference and my friends get a great kick participating in my adventures (or laughing at me!).

    Leila,
    in the past you had a weekly log of running distances of people who would be running for training, there were several people from your company, one guy I forget his name who was doing at least 75 km a week (probably trying to run away from his wife or something), will you be reinstituting that list, it was a great motivator and a way of people owning up to the fact if they ran or didn’t that week

    Good luck with the training and see you in Tahoe!
    Not sure if you are planning to run in the Salomons, but I ran the triple in those in 2004 and found them a little to soft for three days of road pounding…
    These days I go with the Nike Air Zoom Vomero.
