There are Victories, and Personal Victories

I wish I could say I won a cool race like our bud Andy Barrett did this weekend. I'm proud of him, he's been running very well.

But, while I didn't win, or even run, a race, I still had a great running weekend. It started on Saturday when I met Little Lisa at Trout Creek. We had a nice, relaxing 12 miles at a steady pace. My legs felt good.


Sunday it was only Star and Tracy Cole (nice lady and quick ultra runner from Longwood, FL) and I up at Croom. We started at 7 AM in 24 degree weather. But it was a beautiful day, and even though I never wear tights, only shorts, I was never cold. We chugged around for 31 miles and again, my legs were great (my feet were killing me, but not the Plantar area) and I felt better at mile 30 than at mile 5. So, 43 or so miles in two days, and I was feeling pretty good.



Today Star and I met again, this time back at Trout Creek. We motored for 15 miles, and it was effortless. So, 58 miles, the legs feel good. I have a pretty good shot at Umstead, and I'll slay 'em at Kettle in June.


Things, they be looking up!

I'm happy for you that is was all "effortless" and "relaxing." I wish I could say the same.

What I CAN say is that you are going to unleash at Umstead and kill Kettle!

Yeah, you said it Star. Bring it on (quick, while I'm healthy :)
