Day 57… You Spin Me Round
Suburbia and cities I can say are not for me. Even here in VT at my sister and brother-in-laws, although I think my version of suburbia has changed. The townhouse complex that they live in seems like suburbia to me. They have fields behind the house but I miss my vast array of trails and mountains out my back door. Since the Spartan Beast is Saturday and by all accounts its going to be a gnarly course, I am tapering my training. At the same time I am upping or at least attempting to up my studying in order to enjoy myself over the weekend.

So this afternoon before hitting the books I got out on the small trail behind their house. I felt like I was running around in circles for 37 minutes, finishing up with a lap around the soccer field. It was slow, but got my legs moving after the weekend. Not very inspiring but after a day sitting in a classroom it was good to get out and move around. Did a little bushwhacking along the way, pretty much par for the course for me.
The highlight of my day I must say has been the excitement generated about all my Spartan Race Family getting together this weekend. If I have not talked about it before, I was invited to be part of the Spartan Chicked Team. It comprises of an amazing group of female athletes ranging in age from 21 to 42. We have a team uniform for the upcoming race, that will then be available to the general public for sale at the event. Can’t wait to see all the ladies this weekend!
Distance: 3.35 Miles
For now it’s back to the books!
