    good Blackett's-Phoneline 11.83 mi 01:56 09:47 pace

    getting closer to my 30:00 goal on Blackett's with a 31:02. A little tired--wiped out twice on the trail (luckily the flats). Down the road with Jeff and Q who met me at the top (but I'm ... read more

    good Phoneline, down the road, but... 11.2 mi

    Phoneline, but down with Jeff and Q. I beat them to the meet-up so I ran down the road and met them, then finished the road hill with them. Need new headlamp batteries. Still plugging the Home Depo... read more

    alright Milagrosa Loop CCW 9.55 mi 01:28 09:15 pace

    I definitely am feeling a little fatigue in the legs. Coming out the door I didn't want to do much faster than the 9-minute pace I left with. Usually I break it down to 8 and mid-7s within a c... read more

      ha, it's not as bad as it sounds. most trails around here are a little overgrown after a wet summer. Although I'd like to fly down a nicely groomed trail, I'll take an overgrown trail over the road if I have a choice (which I do! yay!)...

      I really do, Christian. It's a lot of fun out here. The trails are generally really interesting, super rocky, and frequently take you to that rarest of resources around here -- water... We're surrounded by tons of open space and mountains. It's going to get hot in the summer, but for now it's pretty sweet (64 this morning, actually was a bit warm).

    Caliente Canyon-Milagrosa Loop 9.71 mi

    Quick 3 road miles under a bright moon to a trail I've seen on aerial photos at the end of Roger but never found. The first half mile is a groomed road in a gated neighborhood that suddenly pe... read more

    great Agua Caliente Summit in the dark 9 mi 01:36 10:37 pace

    Agua Caliente Hill before dawn. Steep, steep! Back down with time to spare, barely bloody! I got lost on the trail once for a few minutes, and kicking through "wait-a-minute" thornscrub g... read more

    good 7.5 mi 01:18 10:23 pace

    Out the door for a pre-dawn Blackett's Ridge run this morning, hoping to break 30:00. A little warm-up loop through the neighborhood on the way, and the $15 Home Depot headlamp shining strong.... read more

      I know! Moved back here from St. Louis and absolutely _loving_ the great trails and rugged terrain. Also only wearing one layer, although today it was gloves, hat, long shirt, and pants for a chill desert morning.

    great 8.1 mi 01:02 07:37 pace

    Easy night miles with new $15 Home Depot headlamp. A little bulky but after two miles I barely noticed it.

      I ran with her when she was a puppy and she would just stop and want to go back, or once she spooked because she saw a horse, and I had to chase her home. Yesterday horses were no problem and she didn't want to stop, so the future is looking bright for Daisy and short lunch runs.
