run, sleep, surf

That's about the extent of my daily existence recently - run, sleep, surf the web for work.  Still poking around for work while I watch my small funds dissolve.  Broke my hydration bladder in my Nathan pack.  Any hydration company looking to sponsor someone racing around 1,000 miles this year, give me a call (preferably before the Bear 100 next week - I'll die of thirst and it'll be on your head).

The good thing is my running is consistent and I'm in better shape than last year at this time.  Hell, the daily run is the highlight of my day.  Kinda like Pippit's highlight is his daily walk.
Pippit knows when it's time to walk and gives me that "look", as seen here from earlier this week.
Along with the consistency of training, I get to sort of reset my life.  I figure a reset is good for my iPhone, so why not for me as well?

AJW has started the ethnocentrically glazed talk of UROY.  He points out that Ian Sharman isn't technically an American, but neither is Nick Clark (corrected by a friend - Nick apparently has dual citizenship, so I'll use Ellie Greenwood as my example).  This is one of several problems the UROY award and its organizers are going to need to address.  UROY, if only for a North American citizen.... Dave Mackey stands alone.  If they open it to UROY of the world.....?  hmmm, I wonder.

Bear 100 in 10 days.  Ready to rip.


  1. UROY for the world? Wait - in regular shorts or in compression gear?

  3. GZ, I'm not even sure I understand that comment. I wear compression gear and I'm American (at least until they kick me out).

    Anon, Thanks. I never would've guessed Nathan bladders were sold online. Do I need one of those fancy TV looking things with keyboards?

  4. Ya... not that I could or ever would race enough to be UROY, I wear compression gear. But I even trump Kilian with my white CAMO shorts. GZ... get with the times man!
    Anyway... Tim, I have several (about 5) spare bladders laying around. If you need one let me know and I can ship you one ASAP.

  5. Nathan should cover that if it's the race pack you just recently bought.

  6. Seems like Bear is shaping up to be a good race...see you next week!

  7. I have the 1.5 liter Nathan pack and can send it your way if you need it!

  8. What happend to InsideTrail?
