    good Recovery Run 3 mi 00:29 09:36 pace

    Of all the things to hurt - the soles of my feet are pretty sensitive right now. Called it at 3 b/c they are not happy campers.

      Epsom salt soaks. And more recovery time. You are prime for injury for the next two-three weeks.

      James - you are dead nutz on. It's not about the medal at all - it all about the journey. Thanks for the reminder. As for Bandera - I hear that is one badass course.

      OK--I know I have been a bit more sporadic than normal on here, but how did I completely miss that you did this?? How amazing. Gosh I didn't even see in your training the build up to an ultra. You are so incredible. I am so sorry that you DNF'd. I am sure it is eating you up if I know you like I think I do. You will get it David--it is well within your reach. Just be smart and have fun with it. That last part seems to be the huge key to the ultra successes I have seen. Amazing job my friend.

      Still a great accomplishment, David! 25 miles in those conditions sounds brutal so I think you're still a winner! Next time, you'll crush that course and the medal will be yours!

    Drizzling skies, Frigid Temps, and unforgiving winds made this run a hoot-an-a-holler. The body could not move fast enough and the lungs were struggling to keep up, so it was a balancing act trying... read more
