Oh yeah. I was slowly making zig-zagging headway with various elimination diets regarding my various allergies and autoimmune issues. Also, there was some recent talk behind the scenes about skaters and their training and/or weight loss goals for the upcoming training season. All of the above, plus a couple of 20 minute flat skating sessions this week that left me gasping for oxygen, has prompted me to try my own 30 Day healthy eating Challenge.

Since we had done 50 two days earlier, there was not very much new to recount, or I had few braincells for recounting. We saw some wild turkeys, the tunnel was not muddy or wet, Dallas is getting our love for that much better water fountain at the back of the restroom building (I think there's a similar fountain at the back of the building in Hiram too, but I have not been up to the shelter in Hiram this year. If you make it to Brushy Mountain Tunnel, you might consider pushing on 3 or so more miles down to the store at Coot's Lake. Yes, you have to come back up, but it's likely you'll be refreshed.

Then after an initial diagnosis, when pain returns, get more diagnosis! At a time when I let a lot of things keep me from going skating, this woman is an inspiration to exercise and to seek help if I feel similar symptoms.
