Hark! A logo! My brother, Nat Vinbury, created the logo to the left. I'm stoked on it and it is really cool that when I open this thing up to write the very first thing I see my brother's work. I love that it loads up and I immediately think, "Natty!" There's the obvious symbolism of the arrow and relentless forward progress, blue mountains that could possibly be rolling seas, and a darling little trucker hat on that running chick. The thing that just hit me looking at this logo is that ultimately I can't isolate ultra running to just my individual efforts or being self made or any other such claim. I am am better for so many of the people in my life and I'm able to participate in ultras and life wholeheartedly because I am us.

My week of training was more of sustinance than specificity. The only specific event I have coming up is the 12 hour New Years Ultra Resolution run up at Kualoa Ranch. Its course profile inspires hilly evening runs but my crossfit and lifting is a labor of love dedicated to anything and everything I may throw myself at in the coming months. I actually went Rx on several WODs recently which has me very confused. Rx doesn't really happen for me, but until recently neither did small mileage daily runs. The times they are a changin'.

Great news! No Impact Project claims me as one of their ambassadors! This is an honor and another healthy dose of responsibility on the shoulders of this "guilty liberal who attempts to save the planet". No Impact Project was my official charity of my 2012 Badwater and that year was also the setting of my Car vs. Hannah adventure and I shifted from vegetarian to vegan. What I saw of 2012 was that you can certainly take any cause and become extreme, radicalized, and impassioned, but I think it is important to make your affiliations and pursuits sustainable.

The geek details of how I finished Peacock are below. You can probably tell that I ran this race from the hip and did not put in the requisite homework or preps that get my head right and make a race a much healthier process. As a result, I was a little slow to recover from the 100k but all in all I'm healthy and happy to have finished. Here are my mistakes and occasional successes. Have at it!
