I'd like to run an Ultra. I want to test my limits and push past them. There are a lot of hurdles between here and there though. One step at a time.

  1. RUN
    great Champoeg Strangeness 4.1 mi 00:58 14:06 pace

    Went out for a short run at Champoeg. The legs were feeling tons better and while I kept it slow, it was moving along really well.

    I run this trail a lot and I noticed a couple guys messing aro... read more

      You should at least let the park rangers know. You never know. Nice 4 tonight.

      Creepy people playing in bushes is never a good thing!

      Being the barefoot guy on the trail, I tend to want to be sure something really is weird before I raise a flag. I'm sure I've been considered the barefoot weirdo more than once. That said, the guys kept to themselves and after we had passed them they had the toy gun out again and I could hear the plastic click of it. Had that not been the case you can be sure I'd have been finding the park rangers.

  3. RUN
    alright Long Slow Fail 5.43 mi 01:22 15:02 pace

    I totally picked the wrong route for the heat today. The initial run up the hill was a lot of fun and I almost made it to the top before I had to walk. After that was open sky and the heat started ... read more

  5. RUN
    great Recovery Run 4.02 mi 00:50 12:23 pace

    First run after Ragnar. Felt pretty good when I headed out but it turned out my legs were definitely sore from this weekend still. I had a nice pace going though so I went along with it. I think a ... read more

    Finished Ragnar Northwest Passage this weekend with the most amazing group of people. I was responsible for 29 miles of the course. We finished in about 36 hours which happened to be almost spot ... read more

  7. RUN
    blah Ragnar Leg 34 5.5 mi 01:25 15:27 pace

    Garmin stopped quarter of a mile early. I was really hurting by this point. I couldn't even step out of the van without winching in pain. Walking was awkward at best.

    I really wasn't su... read more

  8. RUN
    good Ragnar Leg 28 8.03 mi 01:55 14:19 pace

    After my last leg I discovered that my quads were starting to ache. I took the opportunity to jog back and forth from the van a few times prior to starting this one. That seemed to help a lot. W... read more

  9. RUN
    good Ragnar Leg 22 4.73 mi 01:11 14:56 pace

    Darkness falls. While it wasn't the toughest night run the team had, it was the toughest run I had since we started. Lots of uphill climb. Every time I thought I had reached the top, I roun... read more

  10. RUN
    great Ragnar Leg 16 4.04 mi 00:52 12:52 pace

    Last "short" leg before things get difficult. On the whole I was still feeling pretty good. Not only was my heel (pf) behaving but on the whole I was feeling strong. Pace finally settl... read more

  11. RUN
    great Ragnar Leg 10 3.17 mi 00:39 12:21 pace

    Right leg started to loosen up and give me less trouble. Heel stayed well behaved too. My longer legs were yet to come but so far things looked promising.

  12. RUN
    great Ragnar Leg 4 3.89 mi 00:47 11:58 pace

    Not a bad start to the weekend. This was my first of six legs for Ragnar Northwest Passage. Right leg felt a little tweaked but still had a strong finish and a much faster time than I was expecting.

  13. RUN
    great Last Run Before Ragnar 6.17 mi 01:30 14:36 pace

    Last run before Ragnar Northwest Passage. What a blast. I love running in the heat. The temperature was only about 88 but felt like a dry 90. The heat slows me down but feels great when the swe... read more

  14. RUN
    good Champoeg Trails 4.54 mi 01:06 14:36 pace

    Winding down before the Ragnar Northwest Passage next week. I took a detour and explored the Kitty Newell trail head. It was really hot which made breathing labored but it was so beautiful out th... read more

  15. RUN
    alright Saturday LSD 8.45 mi 02:07 15:01 pace

    Started out strong but the heat was bad and muggy. That didn't bother me as much as it could have though. The big problem was my new sandals. About 5 miles in I noticed some pain where the toe... read more

  16. RUN
    good Short Recovery Run 4.07 mi 00:58 14:20 pace

    Had a hard time with this one. First run since Saturday's long runs. Things didn't really loosen up till near the end.

  17. #dailymission How many pairs of sneakers do you keep in "active rotation" for training? -- None. I have a pair of sandals for roads, a rugged pair for trails, and my absolute favorite a... read more

  18. RUN
    great LSD Leg 3 6.08 mi 01:31 15:01 pace

    And done. Whew. It took a lot of convincing to get myself to go out for this last one. That was the hardest run I've ever done that wasn't due to an injury. This brings my total for t... read more

  19. RUN
    great LSD Leg 2 6.26 mi 01:31 14:28 pace

    Second leg of the day. All things considered it went pretty well. Definitely feeling it but I finished strong. Had it start to pour on me about half an hour in but the timing actually worked wel... read more

  20. RUN
    great LSD Leg 1 6.56 mi 01:34 14:22 pace

    Breaking up today's LSD into 3 legs. First one was in Wilsonville and involed some dirt trail in Memoral Park but mostly sidewalks. Lots of little hills (a couple not so little) during the f... read more

      I forgot to add the highlight of the run was a random high five passing another runner going the other direction. That totally made my day. :)
