      I remember you scaring the crap out of Patty years ago by banging on her window after a Lucky Peak run! The creepiest creepers are always those you're already friends with! Haha

      After Donna's comment yesterday I replied and asked if she knew of any other single ladies that would be in the north end with their blinds open since I would be 'in the area'!! Just being funny and someone said...that went a little too far. So I liked their comment to be an additional smart ass.

      So you taper with a 66 mile week? Have I told you you're nuts lately?

      I have been trying to mirror my Western States training since I had a pretty good result that day. During this training week last year I did 68. For some reason my body responds positively to higher mileage. Usually low mileage weeks are more a factor of not having enough time to get all the miles I want in!

      Hard to believe the fast guys beat us by an hour. The third place guy is the course record holder (or was at one point) at Rocky Raccoon 100 with a time of 13:17 in 2014 so I don't feel too bad! So minus the three elite dudes at the front I was 4th for the mere mortals :D

      Glad you and Mr Mustache got to get in some miles together! Hey, speaking of, did I tell you that I bumped into a man with a horse about a month ago at Hulls? I thought he was Tom, so I asked, "Excuse me, is your name Tom?" With a twinkle in his eye he said, "My name is Butch, but for you, sweetheart it can be anything you want!" And then he started singing to me! I sprinted out of there faster than a speeding bullet!! haha

      Ya, it doesn't take many visits to the sauna to get acclimated. I only went two weeks before WS and I know it helped. I just went into Idaho Athletic Club and asked for a trial pass......

      How in the world did you get a hold of a pair if they are that old?! Oh yeah, you're like a thousand years old! I keep forgetting! They do remind me of the Olivia Newton John Let's Get Physical era! You just need a terrycloth headband!
