  1. RUN
    good yoga then run at Lincoln Park 3 mi

    Yessss! Thanksgiving yoga class followed by my first run since the marathon. I felt a bit creaky on the run, but otherwise it was great!

  2. RUN
    good Grand Ridge Trail marathon 26.7 mi 06:16 14:04 pace

    These are my Garmin results from the Grand Ridge Trail race. It was so. hard. And amazing. All the thoughts will be posted on the blog soon!

  4. RUN
    good at Cougar Mountain 7 mi

    Rainy and muddy fun at Cougar Mtn this morning. Last long run before the marathon! Hope my shoes dry out in time ;)

  5. RUN
    good strength and short run 2 mi

    Morning in the gym with Sarah and a short run with the pup in the afternoon.

  6. RUN
    good Cougar Mountain 14.6 mi 03:30 14:23 pace

    Ah.may.zing. long run today with Stacey at Cougar Mtn. How is it that this felt awesome and just two days ago 3.5 felt impossible?!

  7. RUN
    good Bridle Trails State Park 3.5 mi

    Yet another run I could not finish. Ugh. I have straight up run out of mental toughness, which doesn't bode well for a looming trail marathon.

  8. RUN
    good in the rain 3.4 mi

    Nothing exciting, except for the rain!

  9. RUN
    good at Carkeek Park 10 mi 02:25 14:30 pace

    Not sure how far, 10-11 miles. My watch sucks. Very hilly traipse through the park and lots of trees/branches down on the trail!

  10. RUN
    good Discovery Park Trail Loop 5.6 mi

    Yoga then 2 loops at Discovery Park. First one great, second one sucky. Been that sort of week, I guess. Curious how my 3 hr run goes this weekend!

    good around the hood 3 mi

    Rainy run today, but it felt good!

  12. RUN
    good to chiropractor and back 4 mi

    Decided to fit in a run by running to my chiro appt and back. Took me up a huge hill on the way there, so it was a tough one!

  13. RUN
    good on Alki Trail 5.8 mi

    My first run after last weekend's race. It was great to run with Alma and Sally again! I felt nervous I would feel sluggish or sore or even worse, in pain, but luckily my body was fine.

  14. RUN
    good Point Defiance "30k" 19.85 mi 03:54 11:48 pace

    Such a fun race. I absolutely loved the trails at Point Defiance, from wide and flat to barely there and full if obstacles. The climbs and the Gnarley descent were a challenge! Ran my little heart ... read more

    good nothin' fancy 4 mi

    Here's my new annoyance: is a runner required to announce herself when coming up behind someone, and if so, what is the best way to do it? Multiple times I have had people jump or scream if I ... read more

      I hate it when bikes whiz by with no warning, so I always warn people "coming up on your left" (or right). I say it as calmly and quietly as I can, and still they sometimes jump. I'd rather jump at something someone says, rather than just have someone suddenly appear, but maybe that's just me.

      That is a peeve of mine too. I love scaring people by saying on your left - how they didn't hear my loud footsteps and heavy breathing always floors me - way to be aware of your surroundings people <<rant over>>

      Ha, maybe we should take is as a compliment that our footfalls are nice and quiet? And I agree that it is surprising people aren't more aware of their surroundings.
