If the Stars Align

         Tomorrow I still be at the starting line for the inaugural Cayuga Trails 50 mile race with some amazing runners from all over the United States, including my twin sister Rachel and my boyfriend Sage. However, I'm not sure how much I'll go past the starting line, but I will start with the intentions of being smart. Smart might mean running a smart race or it might mean smart by saying I shouldn't be putting my body through this today. 

          On Tuesday I had a upper and lower endoscopy and I'm still not feeling quite right. The medicine to put me asleep definitely kicked my butt as I puked before getting a b12 shot in my butt. (B12 shots are completely legal and I got one in hopes to make up for the stress on my body...more on this in another post) The endoscopy told me I had abnormal mucus in my stomach and that my stomach was red and irritated. It's nothing too serious but a biopsy was taken to see what the cause might be.The results aren't in yet but I could see how those things might be why I haven't been able to absorb iron or other vitamins, leaving me feeling tired for well over a year now.

          Honestly, it hasn't been that fun trying to race tired all the time so I don't know what I will end up doing tomorrow, but I do still have some hope that my running stars might align. Also, if you don't mind, I really believe in sending positive energy/thoughts/vibes to a person so if you can send me some for my race tomorrow that would be great and I will do the same for you whenever you need it... just ask me! :

         Lastly, thank you to the man who came up to me after the press conference yesterday saying that this blog has helped him. The happiness that gave me was immense as that is my goal with sharing my stories. Thank you!

Sending positive thoughts to anyone reading this!

Run Wild, Run Happy,


Some great runners from the east, west, and in-between!


  1. Hope you have a great race and that some of the things you have been dealing with dissolve with your first few steps on the trail. Enjoy!

  2. Congrats on the race Sandi! I was the one who talked with you after press conference. Was great to meet you and Sage and to see the happiness exude from the both of you. DNF on this end so a wee bit of a wrinkle thrown into the whole life outlook but like you say, positive energy/vibes. Just may take a bit longer to tweak. Well wishes in your health and hope to meet again, this time maybe after a finish!
