The King of Beasts
maybe, who knows.
"As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin' man I have chalked up many a mile. Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks, And I've learned much from both of their styles." ~ Jimmy Buffett

The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Seeing KoB avatar - Did you ever notice how in the early years of Tom and Jerry - Jerry was a little A-hole of a mouse and Tom was more innocent and the victim of that damn mouse. Later years it was the complete opposite.
But I suppose years of abuse jaded Tom.
Retired 1/1/13 ... Tired of being broken and fat ... Hit 296# Memorial Day 2016 - New goal = To be able to enjoy running 4-5 hours through the woods again by Fall 2016.

Thanks - I know I am not gifted at writing, but it is fun to share thoughts.
I am hopeful that Leadville training will make me more of a threat to you at Monkey this year. I still hate road hill running - a necessary evil - But I am starting to enjoy train running a bit more.
Although Tuesday night at twilight when I was still 40 minutes from the truck - I had a new experience. Apparently turkeys like to roost in the tops of trees. As I ran by each would lift off of the tree - the branch would twang and it was relieved of the weight and a slow load wooshing sound could be heard as the turkey flew away. It was very creepy - Unless they were really a band of renagade flying Monkeys - I think 13 of them.
I am not sure how smart it is to run in the dark all alone in the woods miles from anything. But if my time is up I would rather be a good meal for a mountain lion, wolf or bear then at the wrong end of a knife or gun.

From the parks today: " You may already know that the Tornado Road paved loop has been repaired. I drove it this morning, and the barricades are gone. Took a year to "recover" at this location!"
