I am still alive.
Quick recap of the last 2.5 weeks.
Family reunion - Parents 50th Anniversary celbration.
Highlight - Got to run with cousins who I used to swing aroung by their arms and legs. They are all over 6ft and 200lbs plus. Great times.
Started the new job-
Last week - Houston
This week - Colorado.... Sorry, no time to venture to the mountains for a run. Bummer
Next week - San Fran for a week of training and orientaion. Trail run will happen there.... some how.
Week after - Chicago.
Then San Diego, then Dallas.
It is all good.
3 weeks ago I started ramping up the mileage. I am back up to 40+ per week, and might hit 60 this week. What am I training for? Not sure yet.... but with only 3 entered in Wild Duluth 100k.... I am pretty confident I could secure a top 5 finish.
The emails about Ozark 100 are tempting.... but the last 2 hundreds were not good showings for me.
So it is just get back to the miles for me. Once the summer humidity breaks, I get fired up to compete. Hence the base training.
And..... I might be changing the title of this random blog to somehting a little more appropriate to where I am right now.
Great job to all who ran Voyageur last weekend. Looks like the Matt's took the year off.
