    Good morning!

     

    Heading out soon for a few miles with the pointer.

     

    Qotd: what non running plans do you have for this wonderful weekend? I plan on doing lots of laundry. This working 5 days a week has put me behind. I miss the 3 12 hour days!

     

    Good luck to racers today and happy trails to all.

      QOTD: Taking the kids to swimming class. I'm amazed at how fast they learn on 30 minutes per week. When I tried to learn freestyle swimming at 38 I worked for hours with no progress. Also looking at kitchen cabinets... not my favorite activity.

        I was going to run this am but got way laid...heading to a car show to hang out with the hubby today.

         

        See above qotd:  also lunch, maybe movie, laundry and a little house cleaning.  Cold rainy weekend.

        I need to sign up for a race..


        Occasional Runner

          14 wet and windy mountain miles this morning. The trails were almost empty because I guess a lot of the local runners are a bunch of pussies. Their loss. I had a great time.

           

          Sue- I thought you were saying you missed your run because you got laid instead. Which, of course, is a totally acceptable reason.

           

          QOTD: Not really. We might meet up with some friends tonight for some drinks, but they're running friends, so it's still sort of running related.

            No running for me this weekend, trying to let my ankles rest a bit. I've got a wedding to go to this evening, other than that I've got some house cleaning to do today.

              21 miles on the Nasty Ass Trail this morning.  (That's my name for the trail.... some people call it the 7 Hills Trail.)  It is nasty because it's not really a trail, just a collection of power lines, unfinished cuts thru the woods, jeep roads.  Plus no one maintains it so the footing is crazy, it has ruts, holes, mounds, huge crappy "mulch" from when they buzzed the trees and ground them up, and on top of all this there are some parts that have high grass so you can't see what you are landing on.  In the early morning your feet get wet from the dew on the grass.  I won't even go into the snakes that could be in the high grass (today we saw a 5 foot rat snake).  The only redeeming thing about the Nasty Ass Trail is that it has pretty constant rolling hills, something we don't have around here.  So if you want to do hills around here - the Nasty Ass Trail it is.

               

              With all this "wonderfulness" the thing is only 4.5 miles, total out-n-back.  So today we did four repeats of that Nasty thing.  We also run about 1.5 miles at the beginning and end of the run to get to/from the trail from/to the car.  Oh yeah, today it was 70* at 6am when we started and about 78* when we finished, and it was 100% humidity.

               

              It takes a bit of mental fortitude to stay on those Nasty repeats rather than go on the really nice trails in the other parts of the park.  But we got it done.

               

              Bighorn looms.

               

              qotd:  Big news !!!!  I'm getting my hair cut later today.

              Endless trails

                It's about time, Sandy, you hippie! I thought our so-called trails were gnarly around here but

                the Nasty Ass wins. When I lived in the bay area there was a trail named 7 Hills Trail in Castro

                Valley, every time I ran it I chuckled to myself; "you know what you're getting into with a trail name

                like that."

                 

                I did 10 miles on nice hilly singletrack this morning; first double-digit run in 4 weeks, and after

                4 days straight of running-I'll take it. I'm taking it slow as I get back up to regular mileage.

                 

                QOTD: No major plans, got the oil changed in both Honda's today. My DW and I have been playing

                with the idea of moving west, I'm voting for AZ.

                  AZ is nice. We really enjoyed living there and there's a strong running community if you know where to look. Good luck.

                        6 with the devil dog before the wind set in, they are talking about gusts up to 75 mph potentially.

                         

                        QOTD: end of the year soccer party, furniture shopping, cleaning the house, drink beer, and thinking about taking kids climbing again tomorrow.

                          5ish with the dog in a nice snow/rain/wind combo. 75 yesterday, snowing today. Can't beat it.

                           

                          Jon- where abouts in AZ? We moved out the the Phoenix Metro (East Valley) area about 5 years ago. Wasn't a runner then, but wish I would have been. My wife is trying to commit me to a 5 year plan that takes us back to AZ, but to one of the central or northern mountain areas (Prescott, Payson or Flagstaff)

                           

                          QOTD: baby stuff. changing diapers, cleaning up poop, washing poop covered onesies, all the fun newborn stuff.

                            qotd: getting the garage organized in our new house, found some really big, heavy duty metal shelving units (2000 lbs capacity ) at Costco, picked up three of them and got them up, bought some Gladiator GearWall bits to hang up the bikes, skis, snowshoes, etc

                                We're still about a year out from a move, so it won't happen soon. We've only driven through; GC and Flagstaff, so we're planning a trip this fall to check out Phoenix and surrounding areas. It'll be a big move for us, but I'm ready to get the hell out of the northeast-it's not where I want to spend the second half of my life.

                                 

                                Wc: nice miles! That's my favorite way to spend a Saturday; early LR, shower, eat and nap.
