san francisco 1-day

what follows is an email i tried to send earlier this afternoon. i couldn’t get around gmail’s spam detector (mass ‘bcc’) so here it is, with pictures added.

OK, some of you may know it, some may not (where HAVE you been?), but I will be in San Francisco this weekend for the famous PCTR San Francisco 1 Day.

My goal is to stay awake and on my feet. With focus on staying awake. Heck, I’ve been living on 3-4 sleep/night for the past month, this should not be a problem for moi. Still, caffeine will be my good friend (as always).

Anyhow, the purpose of this message is to draw a positive vibe from all of you! This is a major running event for me, and I will surely be thinking of my family and friends while doing 1 mile laps on Chrissy Field for 24 hours. (Hey, the views should be stunning, hope for a clear day and night).

Oh, if you feel so inclined, there will be a live webcast, so you can check out how I’m doing (or IF I’m doing…) now if you’re feeling really sorry for this hopelessly insane person who claims to be an adult woman, you can send me an encouraging email, too! (Of course you might as well be wondering just how the heck our paths have even crossed… what, mom?) Anyway, they will give runners their messages as they run by the station — why am I using 3rd person here? Denial? (Hey you folks from the East, if all goes well and you don’t sleep past noon on Sunday, I’ll still be going when you get up…)

Stay tuned for more gory pictures of blistered toes and hanging toenails.

Take care, y’all, and have a great weekend!!!

    That sounds incredibly difficult. Good luck on your run, but moreover, good on you for attempting such a feat.

    Good luck! And my I say those pictures are an all too familiar sight!

    Good luck Nattie! I am sure you will do great!

    24-hour race! I agree it is difficult to explain why you “claim to be an adult woman”! Or otherwise I guess it is just envy speaking – I wish I could be there too. Nattie, you rock! You can totally do it! May The Force Be With You!
    Just a friendly advise: reread you own Orange Curtain recap from the past before the race. It is all about mind decay or – better to say – keeping it from decaying. They say Whenever someone is left to him/her-self for that long the demons come. To survive this thing refrain from talking to them :)))
