  2. RUN
    alright Na'ankuse Perimeter 12.5 mi 01:55 09:13 pace

    Started out nice and cool- maybe upper 50's at dawn.  Listened to all the animals waking up for the day and saw plenty of them.  Once again- they all viewed me as a predator, rather than prey.... read more

      Well, I'd have to say, you win for most unusual run location this week, eh?

      I haven't seen Simba yet, but lots of Pumba's. No lions where I'm at. Where I'm going next, Etosha, there will be lions. not sure if I'll be able to run. I'm willing to pay a guide to follow me with a jeep and a gun if necessary. Got up and close with a friendly cheetah tho'.

    Not all that pretty running near the airport. Nevertheless, I always like new scenery.

    My body has no idea what time it is. Been traveling for nearly 2 days and am now in Johannesburg, SA. got 3-1/2 hours sleep last night. Woke up 'early' by South Africa time. Staying at an... read more

  9. #dailymission What is the missing ingredient you need to become a world-class athlete? Genetics. EPO, and halve my age.

  10. RUN
    good damp 5.1 mi 00:42 08:19 pace

    Nice little morning run. Cool, damp and Ben got in a little swim. Wish it was longer, but I didn't get up early enough and ran out of time.

    And just in case you were wondering exactly how pretty today's run was...

  12. RUN
    good Loma Alta Trail 16.1 mi 03:24 12:40 pace

    Really wasn't sure about this one, as my Pfitz recovery plan said to only do an easy 5 miler this weekend. But- I need to change over to trails as soon as possible, the Loma Alta trail is rea... read more

    Another recovery run. the quads are feeling almost back to normal. Only residual issue right now is my left calf. It took quite a beating on race day, and it's still very sore. Good thing is t... read more

    great Lunch Paddle 1750 yd 00:28 28:24 pace

    Another magnificent day in the desert southwest. Just had to run to the pool for some mental rejuvenation. Spent some time catching rays as well.

  16. #dailymission Why do YOU run or ride or swim or climb or whatever it is you do? Because I've got nothing else to do between 4 and 6am. Plus- my dog lives for his morning runs.

    alright Back in the saddle 3.5 mi 00:33 09:25 pace

    Easy recovery run. Quads are still pretty sore, but figured it was time to get the muscles moving again. Plus Ben hasn't understood why we haven't been running the last few days. Good ... read more

    great Tucson Marathon 26.23 mi 03:15 07:25 pace

    I came into this with my best training set ever. My HM time from 4 weeks ago said that a solid PR was very doable. I told my wife that she should be at the finish line at 10:15, 3:15 after race s... read more

    good T minus 2 days 5.2 mi 00:45 08:43 pace

    Today was an easy 5 miler with 6 x 100m pickups. I backed off a bit, running them without quite the wild abandon as I would normally do pickups. Too scared I might hurt myself. Low lying fog and ... read more
