Trailer Trash

12

Sunday..first day of the week and the month if June. (Read 33 times)


Occasional Runner

    Ran 56 hilly, hot and humid miles. More on this later.

     

    QOTD: I only use the "jogger" term when I want to insult the person I'm talking to. Which is probably what he intended to do as well. Looks like he nailed it.

      I'm surprised our ultra jogging moderator hasn't chimed in with her two cents, she's probably out with her

      bike friends. Trader.

          I am actually visiting our old friend from RWOL...mnkiwi aka Deana...this weekend.  We're both recovering from surgeries so no one ran, but we did go for a nice hike.

           

          I'm also buying a brand new fancy bike tomorrow

            So these are the dailies I'm told to post in! Hmmm....  Came back early from a wknd at the cabin. The mosquitoes were like something from a bad horror movie. Been years since I've had that kind of fun. Actually yelled uncle and headed home early. They were even drilling me as I ran which while moving is usually not a problem. Almost cried like a baby when a shoelace became untied and I had to stop for a minute. Only armed with deet and I was no match for a tiny bug. A long winter with deep snow has left standing water everywhere, could be a real bad summer in the north.   So not many miles and I didn't bust out my mountain bike either. I am a slacking wimp.

             

            QOTD--I usually just look at the source. Plenty of people mean well but just have no clue and are trying to make conversation. But some are certainly insulting you, no doubt. Funny though as these days I call myself a trail jogger at my pace but I don't really want anyone else to. I suppose next time I'll just say "I am on my 3rd trip around the world in total miles. How's your mileage?"

             

            If we need to apply labels I think MarkO says it right as a jogger is just a casual non-regular runner. Anyone who needs to apply a pace per mile criteria to it is just displaying his/her ignorance.

              + 1 regarding the mosquitoes! Ticks are bad this year too.

                So my run today turned into a jog, we'll barely a jog more like a power hike.  Lot's of snow and eval gain.  We went up to 9,000 feet.  Power

                hiked 13 mikes.

                 

                Actually the guy at work is a nice guy and an athletic, it just bugged me when he said jog.  Totally agree with what Mark said..I'm a trail runner it is who I am.   Just wondering what use guys thought.

                I need to sign up for a race..

                  Sue, where were you in that much snow specifically?  Friends of mine just rode their bikes around Tahoe today, apparently 72 miles (crazy), and I noticed some snow in higher peaks in the backgrounds of their photos.  But I don't know the area well enough to know which actual peaks had the snow... unless it's as simple as it being the ski areas like Squaw, etc...

                    Baby steps towards lurking less...

                     

                    Ran 16 lovely miles on trails through redwoods with RC friends.  Surprised that there's as much water as there is in the waterfalls (we were in Waddell -- Berry Creek Falls, Sunset Falls -- for anyone in the Bay Area) since there's been so little rain.  Rather glum about going back to work tomorrow but what can you do.

                     

                    Hey Mark O, what do you do in Rocklin?  And since I'm being nosy about fellow Northern Californians, Queen of Nothing, what do you do in Grass Valley?  MTA: Besides jogging, I mean.

                     

                    QOTD: Nothing to add really.  Really depends on who's using the term and how.

                      I was on the PCT trail off the 80 by Boreal.  Fun fact the PCT trail goes under the highway via tunnels.
