    I'm looking forward to a 14 mile trail race on Saturday. It's the X Terra Malibu Creek. My longest race yet. Never done a Half Marathon either. It should be interesting. race: http://www.trailrace.com/malibu.html elevation profile: http://www.trailrace.com/maps/mctc_14mile_profile.gif

              The race was tough, but went really well and so did the weekend. I blasted my goal time and I came home sore, but rested. My goal was 2:37 and my race time was 2:12. I posted a race report in the race forum. Thanks for the encouragement and advise the last few months everyone. Modified for Fatozzig: My wife added the fashion report to my race report. Beyond that, there were a few colorful label-laiden shirts, and many less ostentacious folks. As a guy and one who is usually on the soulful (surfing lingo) side of things, I felt a little awkward being color coordinated. If that's the price to have a great weekend with my wife I can live with it. Besides, I got a new running shirt and another pair of Injinji socks for the sake of color coordination.
