|Antelope 100. I look like a rodeo clown.|
Ran with Nick P. (just became DOCTOR Nick P. on Thursday). I had to give him a lesson in clouds and levels of the lower atmosphere. The rocket scientist responded, "I'm more involved in things much higher up." Whatever. We ran a couple loops at the reservoir with sustained winds in excess of 35 mph. Considering he weighs less than one of my legs, I thought I'd have to fish him out of the res on a couple of occasions.
Met up with mtnrunner2 down at Mt Falcon this morning. We planned on 3+ hrs but I was getting this blister on my heel (wtf with the foot problems this last week?). And, my diapers were all bunched up, so we held it to 2.5 hours. It was getting damn hot by the time we finished; think it's hitting 80 today. On the way home I stopped at s. mesa trail and ran that for another hour and even 20 miles. The flat running didn't mess with the heel. Body feels sharp and ready to put in the work for races coming up.
Planning a fun, long run with tons of climb next Saturday (the 9th) if anyone is interested in joining. It will include Green, Bear, Walker Ranch, and beer.
Still spaces available for the all-inclusive "kick your butt" mountain running camp. It's the deal of the century and will leave you talking about it for the rest of the year.
