The last two weeks have been crazy fun for me to say the least! I have taken on an amazing role at a super awesome company called INKnBURN. They make all kinds of endurance apparel, women's & men's running shirts & tops, running sleeves, compression leg sleeves(coming soon) and are doing things in the endurance industry that no one else is or can do. Absolutely no screen prinitng ever...even with our sleeves. Just insane! Above are a bunch of pictures of some rad shit we have been working on, and trust me so much more will be following!! Yes that is my dear friend Michelle Barton and my beautiful other half Jesse Haynes modeling our newest gear. Its the most amazing breathable endurance gear you will ever run in, and it's all hand made in Lake Forest. Keep your eyes out for some incredible Cycling kits we have coming, and hand held water bottle holders with designs, ect. Friggin *AwesomeSauce*!! We will be at all kinds of Tri events come Fall & spring!

I am recovering great from my injury, and have been super busy with all kinds of stuff. Kind of getting sick of hobbling around though, and its been nice this last week to be walking around somewhat normal! I feel awesome though, and just cannot wait to be back at it all in about 7 more weeks. Yay!! Jesse has just been incredible, and so supportive. I cannot imagine my life without him!! He keeps saying he misses his best running & cycling partner ever, and I keep thinking yes baby I miss it to! What's great is Jesse is a huge Kayaker so I am going to start "Stand Up Paddle Boarding", and he is going to kayak next to me. I am first gonna go out with my Friend Molly(race director of Whoo's in El Morro 50k&30k) a few times to just learn how to do it. So excited as it will be great cross training. Cannot wait to be able to start hiking as more than anything I LOVE to be outdoors. I love being on trails, and I only have five more weeks until I can start to hike. No running until early October though. Not even worried about it though. I will be back to 50k distance by late November. I am so incredibly healthy that my healing time is just way faster than most. I already feel incredible, and really won't loose much fitness. Its just gonna be a little while before I will get my speed back to be competitive. I plan to just work on that the entire Fall, and by Dec be 100%. Its been good in many ways as I have had so much work to do for my Fall Races & events that I really needed the break.

Jesse ran Mt.Dissapointment 50k last weekend, and did amazing! He finished 2nd behind Jorge, and what's interesting is the course was three miles longer than last year, but both him & Jorge's times were still super solid. It was a hot day, and just a brutal course. Its so overgrown with the purple poodle dog, and many people dropped or had to be rescued off the course. Such a tough day but Jesse kicked ass! I even got to see my boys Chris & Dom out on a training run while I helped at the mile 24 aid station. Tons & tons of friends were there, and even though I could barely walk it was great to get out and see everyone!! My Martini Sauce Kate Freeman was 2nd woman, and although struggled at the end she still killed it. She is just a super star, and such an incredible athlete! I am so excited to see what she will do with my Marathon course @ Leona Valley Trail Races(http://leonavalleytrailraces.com) Above is a cute pic of all of us at the finish line hangin' out! I even got a shot of one of my Rudy Project Ultra team members Jorge Pacheco.

I also discovered this super great company called Rise Bars(http://risebar.com/) They are the most delicious bars on the planet, and are based out of Escondido! They have three kinds of bars: Breakfast, energy, and protein. They are honestly the most delicious bars I have ever tried, and make bars that totally work for me. Gluten free, soy free(PEOPLE DO NOT EAT SOY!!), Peanut free, vegan, and just plain good for you. Pure health! They do have a line of protein bars that have whey, and obviously I do not eat those. Jesse says they are super yummy to though! My favorite is the Blueberry Coconut or the Crunchy Perfect Pumpkin. Here is a link to find out where they are sold near you: http://risebar.com/purchase/store-locator
Looking forward to filling you all up on these @ Leona Divide(http://leonadivide5050.com) and Los Pinos(http://lospinos50k.com)!! I will also bring a bunch with me when I work the Rat Hole @ Noble Canyon 50k. Cannot wait for this race!! I have my money on my Rudy Project team member Chris Price! Love him to pieces, and he is just a rock star! Please keep your eyes out for full details and a press release coming soon about my Rudy Project North American Ultra  Running Team. Details coming by early September. ;o)

I also found this amazing article on womens health and weight loss, and wanted to share it with my female readers. Its a great article, and a must read!! The online Health, Fitness, & Wellness website interviewed  fitness expert and personal trainer, John Romaniello on weight loss myths that  are common among women. The article “5 Weight Loss Myths Exposed” can be viewed at <http://www.womenshealthbase.com/5-weight-loss-myths-exposed-expert-qa-with-john-romaniello/>. A definite must read!! 

I also wanted to give a huge shout out to my friend Keith Cunnigham, and his amazing event called the ROC race.
