Skyrunner = Runs distance + vertical. Circumstances changed. I didn't make Tahoe 200, Western States 100, Wasatch 100.  My luck sucks...or is awesome, depending on how one looks at it. These "no's" made

 me question what I really want to do. What REALLY charges me as a runner?  Well, I wanna be a skyrunner! Picking tahoe 200 and Tor  Des geants is evidence of what I love, but if I wanna be a skyrunner, then why not do the US Skyrunning series? Before I thought of all the reasons why NOT to do the series, I decided to DO it, and let it fall in place. Doesn't that just sound silly?! I'm a grown woman, 40 no less! I'm old enough to know better than to have such silly dreams. Or am I? It's gonna be a whollottahellahard, and living at 400ft above sea level imparts no advantage. At the very least, it should be interesting to watch as I progress through this series. I have no great running resume. Actually, if you were to peruse my finishing times at altitude you would see they rather suck. But with plenty of room to improve, here we go! Oh, and I do expect few black toenails!
