Good morning and welcome to Lincoln Up! This is the first Sunday I’ve had off in…EVER! Usually even if I am racing in the AM, I go in for a few hours at night. I think it’s due to the volunteering I thought I would be doing at the Whiteface Sky Marathon…until I realized it was 5 hours away and not possible. Good luck to all runners killing it in that race and in the Western States 100. Check out the video I posted under the running section about the race. It looks so hard, but there is some part of me that really wants to do it…someday.
It was my sister’s birthday on Thursday and also only 6 months until Christmas. To be honest, I can totally wait for that! Although we’ve had some rainy days lately, I still could live in summer weather all year round.
Enjoy these links, enjoy your Sunday!
