These 40s Are Over

Last infusion of my 40s … then a 5k run #Crohns #Remicade #AutoimmuneAthlete
Since 2015 there have been a hundred or more (hundreds?) of professionals at Stanford Medical/Hospital that have worked to keep me alive. I've seen residents become doctors and surgeons (even had one resident become my surgeon years later!), nurses offering the most kind care, parking valets that have helped me from the car when I couldn't walk, pain specialists, scheduling gods, and so many mo...
Netflix really should have dialed me up on this one.
Fun shakeout run this morning for the Big Sur Marathon. I've got so many people in the pace group I mentored for the Fleet Feet training this spring running at Big Sur and several more running in Eugene this weekend. I'm not running—it has been so fun to rack up all those miles with these amazing humans and seeing our progress grow together. [Image] Two of my favorite people! I had to take...

I acquired On Trails from the library ladies who curate a table each week for the Carmel-by-the-Sea market where we sell our gluten-free wares. I’ve never encountered more thoughtful and fun collections than the table put together by these women, one whom often wears sweaters proclaiming, “wild feminist”, or “old book lady”. Moor’s “On Trails” will always be connected to the Wild Feminist who g...
My original plan for the pace group I'm mentoring for the Big Sur Marathon was to taper off around 13 miles when they got to the longer distances. My body has had a hard time with over 2 hours of running. Specifically, I get concerned about hydration since the total colectomy, as well as fueling and digestion. Hydration is tricky because it isn't about water consumption, but maintaining osmoreg...
I had a flashback moment to almost exactly 8 years ago on my 50-mile ride at Sea Otter while out on our training run with the Fleet Feet group on Saturday. The route was 16-18 miles, and despite mentoring a pace group, I've never run more than thirteen-and-a-half. I had been nervous the day before, escalated to near complete anxious exhaustion because my Coros Pace 2 watch completely died leavi...
We were attending a memorial in Sonoma County this weekend, so I decided to take on the route for the Fleet Feet marathon group by myself on Friday. I ran out of daylight and ended up at 13.3 of 15 miles, but my effort was not only the furthest I've ever run, it was the hardest too. [Around mile 8]
