Thanks dave. I haven’t done that much training even in a whole year since 2008. However, I think I’ll do it again for the reunion mariposai’s planning for next year’s Light-at-the-end-of-the-Tunnel Marathon. You guys are such a bad influence. No wonder I love running so much .
Robert - I did it my last time too and there were more than 50 of 'em this year too. Hope you are okay though, . . and at least made to the photo stop on Corral Pass with Mr. Rainier in the background. With climbing two moutains you picked a heck-of-a-run for your first one for the heck-of-it in a long time. How does White River rank in all the other 333?
ps - ilene gets so many PR's, including marathon and half mary earlier this year, that she probably forgot but I think her “two-more-lifetime-PR’s” in July (5K/15K) qualify for monthly recognition too.

June 2012 - 58.1 miles in three events.(note: 55 miles in two events with Robert, . . . but he got done them in 8:20:26 hours vs. my 14:25:09.
YTD - 177.5 miles.

So Posie's DS-1 shows up for the Fremont 5K in the prison pants costume he got as a volunteer intern some years ago and says, "oh, I think I'll run barefoot too." I didn't bother to ask him how much barefoot training he'd done 'cause he's exactly like someone else I know <<<(that-would-be-me)>>> with regard to being not concerned one iota about training if there's fun to be had. Fortunately, he's like his parents in every other aspect.

ps - I'm wearing the Japan
100-Marathon Joyful Running Club
samui (happy) coat in the RnR
just seein' if being in shape from winter ski racing in those days was good enough to run annual marathons
since 1977 and triathlons of all distances to IM since 1978 without that much, if any, training. Yippee, it was.
