Wow! This was one tough trail race. It was 5+ miles on the first loop done four times and 3 + miles on the second loop repeated 3 times. The trails were rocks and roots and very little flat or smooth areas. So at 8AM we start. Maybe 7... Read more
2 races this weekend! What was I thinking??
Sunday, October 12, 2008      7 comments

Well I did two races this weekend. Something I've never done before and probably never again, especially long ones like these two. Maybe two 5Ks would be more reasonable. Race 1: Taylorsville 6,12,18 mile trail race. I did the 18 miler ... Read more

Went to ride my bike to work Thursday morning and the back tire was flat. I knew, well, I wasn't surprised it was flat as I had to pump it up twice on the way home last Friday. So last night I fixed the flat, adjusted the gears, cleaned and lu... Read more

Forced myself out the door last night when I got home. Very humid outside and that I wasn't looking forward to. I ran to some trails close by, which are flat, but they are nice and in the trees away from the sun. There are three overlook wood... Read more

Did a ten mile trail race this past Saturday. And let me tell ya, it was tough. If it wasn't going up, it was going down. Tons of roots, rocks, stone steps twist and turns. So that was fun, right? Yes, it was. I decided to bike out to ... Read more

Well, the 50K went pretty good considering the high temps and I just ran a 101.2 miler three weeks ago. The race started at 8:30 and I was behind 5 runners for the first few miles. I felt good then so I took the lead and held it for a good hour.... Read more
