  1. RUN
    Peppersauce Stampede 10.5 mi

    Trail race. Not a very big one, less than 80 runners and about 180 mountain bikers in the gravel grinder. I guess it was a solid run. Got out in front after the first mile. Got passed by one guy a... read more

      Yeah, that's messed up. 2nd and 3rd always deserve something. Especially overall! Good job regardless. 2 out of 80 is still pretty damn awesome.

    alright recovery 4 4 mi 00:33 08:19 pace

    was planning on an easy six, but legs never got under me. so, just 4. got a race in two days, so perhaps it's a good thing for me to take it easy.

  3. RUN
    alright Dogs, River Plod, and some MP 8 mi 01:08 08:30 pace

    Dogs wouldn't let me get out the door without them, so I started off with their short run. Then, mushed across the sandy wash and got on the river path for some heavy legged miles. Managed t... read more

    good Breaking Bread with TRP 12 mi 01:39 08:13 pace

    Out the door at WTF O'Clock, to hobble over and meet up with the TRP clan at Udall park. Almost thought I was going to need to run alone, until Kristi showed up a few minutes late. Normal pa... read more

    good TTR- Sabino Basin 13.9 mi 02:47 12:00 pace

    Started early, in the dark- so my outbound wasn't very fast as I run slower with the headlamp. But- I did well on the way back. All in all- a good run. Just didn't really get to run wi... read more

    alright Slept In 8.1 mi 01:11 08:45 pace

    alright Slow Dancing with Happy Llamas 10 mi 02:05 12:32 pace

    Nice little group that showed up at 5am for a run up the Phoneline trail. I did it- but not with any celerity. Knew I wasn't running very fast today, but according to Strava, it was, by far, ... read more

    good WOG 11 x 1min 4.56 mi 00:35 07:40 pace

    1mi warmup. Then some speed work with WOG around the baseball field. 11 x 1 min with 1min rest in between. I seemed to be pacing between 5:55 and 6:20 min/mi during the 1 min sets. twas good. ... read more

  9. RUN
    blah Tired Ten 10 mi 01:27 08:44 pace

    Ugh. Slow getting out of bed. Slow getting out the door. Felt achey and tired, and my right knee is a little sore. Was thinking only running 6 or 7 today. But- kept on running. No speed in th... read more

  10. RUN
    good Breaking Bread with TRP 10.82 mi 01:31 08:21 pace

    Temps and humidity not bad- mid 70's. Jogged over under the stars to meet up with the TRP group at Udall Park. Those first few miles at 4:40am are always a bitch.
    Then, as is my typical tue... read more

  12. RUN
    alright In the shadow of Humphreys 7.6 mi 01:04 08:25 pace

    I still feel good one day after a long run, so now's the time to get in a few more high altitude miles in the cool pines. Clear morning, unlike yesterday, so I could actually see the San Franc... read more

      You are always recovered, Morey! Amazingly, your workouts never reflect the aches and pains you mention.

      Cari- I have about 10 shoes in my rotation (two are for trail running). Mostly- shorter, faster runs in lighter more responsive shoes, and more supportive and cushy ones get taken off the shelf for longer runs or days when I'm hurting more. But often I stare and my closet for 10 minutes trying to decide. It's an unexact science. :)

      Good thing you have that badass headlamp. Must be a little startling when you come upon a human out there in the darkness.

      We have a beautiful wasp spider in front of our garage window, and the web is so beautifully made. Am waiting for a male to show up. No luck so far. (We watched wasp spiders mate a few years back, that was something, seeing the female wrap the poor little guy in a cocoon afterwards, and eat him later.)

      I believe at that moment I was waving my hands and yelling to Kerry (the GOATographer), saying something incredibly witty like "don't shoot, don't shoot". But yeah, I did some chatting with Mark, and Roger, and whomever else blew by me during the race.
