I had to put some more time and emphasis on school this week so I only got one day of doubles in. 95.8 miles for my total.
Learning how to become a Massage Therapist is not as easy as you might think. In addition to the anatomy & physiology, you need to use proper body mechanics and be graceful. Yah, graceful, those of you who know me well probably just laughed yourselves out of your chairs.
So my entire plan might be changing and I REALLY want feedback from you guys. I am very discouraged about the fundraising aspects of doing a fully supported cross country run. I am starting to consider plan B. (Actually this was my original plan) I am realizing that as tough as it would be to do a self supported run, (going alone and carrying all of my crap in some type of cart) it somehow seems easier that trying to singlehandedly fundraise money for an RV and crew. Only one woman has ever made the journey self supported (Zoe Romano)
Breaking the world record might be impossible this way…no sure? A friend sent me this link on long distance hiker trolleys: http://littlegreentracs.typepad.com/my_weblog/2011/05/long-distance-hikers-trolleys.html and now my cranial juices are flowing.
I also just learned that Connie Gardner (USATF National Champion and Ultra runner of the Year) will be attempting to break the same transcontinental record this year…Soooo, if she raises the bar I would need to run more than 70 miles a day? Scrapping the record and pulling a trolley just keeps sounding better and better. I would love to hear feedback from my blog followers…
