  1. RUN
    injured Knee Pain 6.1 mi 00:54 08:51 pace

    Tale of two runs. First half I felt stiff and fatigued from Sunday's 32 miler, but otherwise pain free. Not surprising after just one rest day. I was pretty happy with this, and Ben and I we... read more

    good AZ Trail 50K with TTR 31.9 mi 06:27 12:07 pace

    Pretty solid long (OK, Very long) run today. Small showing for the TTR run (which included Jamie M.) and it was a truly beautiful day for running. We started at first light, enjoyed a nice sunris... read more

    Breezy, nice, sunny. Late afternoon hike up the Aqua Caliente trail with my daughter and her friend. 800ft vert

  5. RUN
    good Cold Hands 7.7 mi 01:06 08:31 pace

    Cold (by our standards) in the 30's. Ben and I headed towards SNP to run the Cactus Forest Trail under the crisp and brilliant stars. Knee was no problem today (yay!) but I stayed away from ... read more

  6. RUN
    good Knee Recovery test 6.5 mi 00:54 08:18 pace

    After 3 off days to give the knee some rest, regular icing and ibuprofen, it was feeling pretty serviceable today. Pain level was about a 1-2, and as long as I didn't go down any steep hills,... read more

  7. When I'm injured- I like to go back and read Anthony Krupicka's little write-up on it. He really hits the nail on the head.

      Thanks for posting Morey. I've always said, "It would be easier mentally and physically if I would just break a bone." Never have and end up with these crappy soft tissue injuries that take forever to go away. Hope your knee feels better very soon.

      I'm so sorry to hear. A knee injury I can definitely relate to. Take it easy...maybe do some yoga and foam rolling. Thinking of you! You've done great this season so far!

      Good luck. I've had that. Was recommended by the Doc to take max doses of Motrin for a few days; it worked.

    Just a perfect day for the Tucson Trail Runner group to do the venerable BCL.  I always forget how amazing and beautiful this run is.  From crossing the creek 7 times, those huge rock canyon walls,... read more

    good New Trail Shoes 10 mi 01:40 10:00 pace

    A little, easy paced trial run with some new trail shoes. Saucony Peregrines- Not very cushy, but a really great grip. Cold at the start- in the mid 30's, but it warmed up quickly as soon as... read more

      Nice run, like reading about your shoes. I am having an ongoing battle with shoes... my saucony's are the only ones that haven't failed me yet. Just bought some brooks and my ankles have been hurting. Ran with my 3 yr old saucony's today cause I couldn't take it anymore.

      Wow Brian- 3:16 is flyin. Not planning on coming close to that tomorrow. I've got too much mileage in my legs this week. I'm in the middle of a build- so i can't hit it too hard.

      I came out on the tram road though and laid down some sub 8 miles to wrap up. Cheating...Adding the phoneline is atleast an extra hour + I am sure.

      I took the reflective laces out of them- because they're cool and I'll use them on another pair. I took the footbed inserts out of them, because the ones in my Salomon trail shoes are made from open cell foam and absorb water- and need replacing. the remaining ripped shells... went in the trash can. Not good enough to donate.

      450 miles seems like a lot to me. But I switch out my shoes around 300 miles, thou I do it more for superstition I think than need. With my foot problems and history I don't like to push my luck. Great run today Morey! I'm glad to hear you felt like a runner!

      Super run! The beautiful thing about the trails is that they totally take away the pressure to push too hard when you shouldn't. So much to take in, and so many obstacles to pay attention to!
