The August 2013 issue of Running Times has a feature article on Sabrina Little, who recently set an American record in 24-hour running by running over 150 miles! She is the first American woman to surpass the 150 mile mark. I can’t even fathom running that far. In the article they detail a typical week of training for her:
Her weekend really blows my mind. Seventeen miles on Saturday and a marathon by herself on Sunday. I am in awe. I wish I could eat miles for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Maybe someday…
I decided to do my 3 mile run in the morning before work today. Are you sensing a pattern? I chose to stay indoors and run on my new treadmill, mainly because I wanted to play with my new toy again. We’ll just ignore the fact that it’s only 60 degrees outside (but still 100% humidity).
Now I can take the traditional shoe picture on the treadmill, so that you will know my feet were there.
I also have another reason for doing my run in the morning. This week the New River Valley Fair is going on and Barry and I are planning a date night! We still haven’t decided whether to go tonight or tomorrow night, so I wanted to get my run done just in case.
Tonight’s attraction is the ARMA lawnmower racing. Now you may be picturing a bunch of guys on standard ride-on mowers racing around a track, but that’s not quite it. These guys go fast!
Lawnmower racing or bull riding?
Have you ever gone to your local or state fair?
What do you think about Sabrina Little? Can you fathom running over 150 miles in one go? Or a 24-hour run?
