I will do a year in review post in the next week or so, but just wanted to share this super awesome exciting piece of news. So I saw on my teammate and friend Jason Schlarb's Facebook page a link from someone showing he was in the top 100 men for Skyrunning Federation world rankings. Cool! Didn't particularly surprise me, he's an awesome runner. So I wandered on there to read the other names for fun, including the women's list, wondering if I'd recognize any names since this was a world list. Reading along, and what did I see?
HOLY COW! I saw MY name! #46. I was so totally surprised. Honestly I didn't even know this ranking excited and certainly didn't know they were following my results. Also didn't know I had run 3 of their ranking races (well I knew Speedgoat was, but not the others). I had to pick my jaw up off the floor but did not wipe the huge smile and awe off my face for quite a while. I am so honored to be on this list and it sure sends a surge of excitement and motivation to me. I won't sandbag and say I'm just average, I believe I'm a talented runner, a strong and smart runner, and I love to run and compete. I just did not picture myself on this list, but you know what? This wasn't a popularity contest, I earned it. This married, mom of 4 nursing student. Wow!
