No make-up and a ponytail are the norm…
In fact…if you DO fix your hair and your face…you’re the weird one.

Why do you love to run?
Just in case you missed it…my brain and I had a discussion the other night before a tough race, you can read more about it here. Sometimes you just have to let it know who’s boss.
The Peavine Falls 2013 run is now history…and I WON! Not the whole race…but I beat myself, and isn’t that our largest obstacle most days?
BRAIN vs. Julia It’s going to rain. Yes it did!…and it was lovely to run in the rain! It wasn’t just the run and sweat burning out my frustrations…but it was as if the rain washed them all away as well. You don’t like the rain or getting messy. You’re right. Typically that would be me. But I DID IT ANYWAY! Loved it! You were in better shape last year. AND your point is? Bet that speed walker man is going to beat you again. I think I saw him once. He was running this year. I applaud his efforts, and I have no idea if he beat me this year. 3.2 miles UP HILL? ARE YOU CRAZY? Yes, I do believe so. Maybe just a little bit….and next year I will run all the way up! Just watch me. You’re just not good enough. Not only did I finish, but I beat last years time by 1 minute and 26 seconds! You’re WRONG AGAIN!
Brain = 0 / Julia = winner!
I’ll write a race recap later.
Here is a Quote from Birmingham blogger Yo Momma Runs about last year’s race:
Peavine Falls Run is 8.2 miles which include a straight uphill climb with, what
felt like, very few respites of flatness and then a slingshot at the top to blow
you right back down that hill you just conquered (that’s if you have a liberal
definition of that word). And just for funsies, they throw in a 1.2-mile patch
of trail at the end in case all the downhill didn’t make you wet your pants bad

So as I sit here right now this is what my brain is telling me: “It’s going to rain. You don’t like the rain or getting messy. You were in better shape last year. Bet that speed walker man is going to beat you again. 3.2 miles UP HILL? ARE YOU CRAZY? You’re just not good enough.”
As I type, we’ve got our bag packed and running clothes laid out…To my brain I just want to say:
Just wait ’til tomorrow morning, you’re gonna’ get a brain whoopin’
I win. Goodnight.
Here are a few of my favorite sights from the last 3 years:
…and this is my favorite “spectacular view” of all time….
I’m sure we will have many more spectacular views to share with you in the future!
If you have a spectacular view from a run or a race that you would like to share, feel free to comment with a link to your blog!
I know there are many more beautiful places in this world.
