5 months pregnant +... I made my way to my hometown of Alpena Michigan. The week would be full of adventures with my family and especially my nieces Shelby, Savana, Emma and my nephew Garrett. First on the list was the Waugoshance Mackinaw City Trail marathon. Something I've wanted to do for a long time, but now I actually had the opportunity. It was a relaxed, muddy, wet race...flashbacks of the Indiana Trail 100 shot through my mind over some parts of the course and down pour created an experience I wouldn't forget. I finished 2nd, 3:46. Onto the next weekend...a one mile race with my nieces and camping made for an exceptional weekend. Niece Emma dominated. Just turning 5, she ran the one mile course in 8:39! As I boarded the plane back to Colorado, another surprise... my parents informed me they were jumping in the car the next day to drive out to Colorado and bring me the family bassinet and rocking chair. Yay! Another week of fun back in Colorado with family and friends and now we are on our way to the Ouray Colorado 100 mile to volunteer. As always- thanks to my sponsors- The Simply Bar, Ultimate Direction, GU Energy, and Icespike!
