We are in Missouri and have been following roads close to the Mississippi south from La Crosse, WI to Blanchard Springs, Arkansas: gateway to the Three Days of Syllamo Race in The Ozarks. And who knew Ozarks came from the French aux Arks or aux arcs? Not me.
We are all packed in the Ford Windstar, even my mom, who seems to enjoy making these adventures possible.
SR has been telling me I will win this whole race for months. This whole race is a 50k tomorrow, a 50 miler the next day and a half marathon on Sunday. But Ashley Nordell will win, likely outright. Meghan Hicks will also beat me. But no one will stop me from shining on the inside and outside and loving every aspect of this adventure. Just a question of whether my left foot can endure 50,000feet of elevation change over three days.
SR will run the 50k tomorrow and the half marathon on Sunday. I promise pictures.
Is anyone else totally preoccupied by thoughts about whether or not Piccola Pinecone is in labor?
