Happy Halloween!

I've heard you start looking like your spouse over time. I didn't expect this drastic of a transformation!

Racing the Blazer

Yesterday I did my last hard workout before Masochist.  After Superior Sawtooth, I had big plans of incorporating quality speed-work into my weekly training in hopes of making an honest effort at racing again in five weeks.   I've never been the model of consistency when it comes to speed work - I should have known it would never last.  The first few interval and fartlek sessions left me very sore, achy, and a feeling of "on the verge" of injury.  I quickly altered my training plan and replaced the shorter speed sessions with more longer tempo runs and "climbathons" as I like to call them.  Yesterday was a climbathon workout.

WV Trilogy 2010 - Co-RD Report

The initial idea for this unique event came in early 2009 when Dan and I made a trip to Arkansas for the 3 Days of Syllamo.  On our trip to the race, we had been seriously brainstorming and hashing out details for a 100-mile race that we would take on and direct together.  After our experience in Arkansas though, our minds were changed.  Knowing how logistically difficult a 100-miler would be to pull off, we knew that a 3-day event would be equally (or more) special and require far less resources to accomplish.  Ultimately, there is something so very special about the unguarded camaraderie and unparalleled experience of racing multi-day events - we wanted to share this with our fellow runners in one of the most extraordinary places in all of West Virginia.

RT Weekly Recap

My posting has been quite sporadic lately.  I've been extremely busy since Sawtooth getting ready for the Trilogy race.  Expect some amazing pictures and race reports between here and the WVMTR page over the next few days.  The event was every bit as amazing and special as I envisioned.
