    3100 feet of gain and I ran every step to the top other than 3 seconds to take a picture. Not sure that running it all was the most efficient thing but it was good mental training to not quit when... read more

      Good point! That's why I hardly ever see any of the sunrises since the last thing I'm capable of is hauling ass uphill!!! I sure have enjoyed my fair share of sunsets though which only require me to be still and enjoy. Ahhhh

      It's funny how much of an attitude adjuster running can be. The other morning I was ready to go for a run with a pal. The friend kept stalling on when we'd start the run while I sat there with the ice melting in my pack ready to leave. By the time they told me to just go on my own, I was feeling impatient and cranky and the heat had increased outside. Four and a half hours later, I was driving home from the run feeling sweeter and more pleasant than I'd felt in a long time. :) Yay for endorphins

      That was the second time in a week. I was left waiting at a trail head earlier in the week for an hour while they were running late, too. I think that's what I'm going to do from now on. I will be starting at such and such a time and will start on time. :)

      That would be impressive! I think I may start adding in once a week speedwork again! You're motivating me to get back at it! Oh and I want to remind myself that I don't always have to go 100 mile pace! haha

      That's cool! Good job. I was thinking about my cadence and stride this week and thinking mine had become slow and conservative because of all the trail running I do. Interesting you varied it and it made you feel better.
