    Dr. Tom - though my knees can’t handle the two six-mile+ quad-smashing descents off from Corral Pass and Suntop Mountain in today’s beloved and famed White River 50-mile Endurance Race every end-of-July I was reminiscing over all day long, my heart lept up when I found out the old Torchlight 12K (7.45mi) through downtown Seattle had become the Michebob Ultra Torchlight Run but it turned out to be the same old 12K under a new name. Oh well.  You know, I thought my running days were over when my right knee got old on me in 2009 but, thanks to your sage advice on abbreviating strides even if to a pretty much non-running comfort zone, I had a blast pretending I was running it in 40 minutes like in those days anyway.  Thanks.  ps - let's hold off on a resupply of the purple pills for a while.  
    7/27  tetsujin - Michebob Ultra 12K (57:15 - 11:31m/m) - 5/9 in my new AG (1274/1514 OA) / yippee.

    rhoon - did you get a chance for the King Salmon Marathon?

    I think it's on a very dusty road between KS and Naknek.

    (or were you counting yogi's?).

    divechief - never thought for a 300' freezer-factory trawler that never goes anywhere beyond the Bering Sea being anything other than a trawler.  Since it's big, is it a vessel or, maybe like the ferry, since it sticks around on the this side of the ocean, just another fishing boat?

    ps - .was that the Wenatchee we saw around 7:10 pm on the way up the Alaskan Way Viaduct?

    Missed you in your first favorite run.  Tammy's too.

    annual marathons since 1977, tri's since 1978,

    ultras since 1986,  running barefoot since 1990, if not 1943.

      Tet:

      That was indeed the Wenatchee and I was under the car deck driving.

       

      As I said before, you can call it anything you want.  Twocat is going to call it a car.  That's fine, it's a free country,  but people will look at him funny  Confused

       

      off to bed now.  glad you had a good run.
