It is looking like a great day for a run today! I hope the day is beautiful for all.
I am not sure what or when I am running today. I am waiting until later.. it is supposed to get up to 72 degrees today.
I ran yesterday for the last time on my favorite trail. They have put up wetland barriers and marked the trees. They are preparing to pave it. I just can't bear to see it happened . That trail has been like home to me for 20 years (damn...I'm old). I am going to approach a couple of land ownerswith vacant land adjacent to where I grew up to see if they will let me run it during non hunting season. If they don't let me my only trails will be a 30 minute drive. You have no idea how many times I have wanted to pull up stakes and markers on MY trail to delay the project... but if I go to jail...there would be no trail running at all.
I hope you all ave a great day!

My day will be full of chores..the old man is returning and I need to make it look like running did not interfere with responsibilities, even though it did (and wine).
Moonlightrunner: That sucks!

10 miles this morning. The first 2 were very very slow, but then I started to feel better so the rest was just slow. Heavy weekend for me with 20, 20 10, I see a nap in my future today.
moon: I had been waiting for the county to put in this new trail along a river for a few years, but then was shocked when they paved it. It's still ok to run on, just not as nice as it could have been.
QoN: That's the way it should be, panic cleaning just before the <fill in the blank> gets home.
Happy Easter, (late Passover), etc. everyone.

Faster Than Your Couch!
Run for fun.
Happy Easter to those celebrating, happy Sunday to the rest of you. Ran 7 easy slow slow miles on the road this morning. I wanted to get 31 miles in for the weekend so I could at least tie Earl.
Queen - pretty impressive run, any pics of Earl running?
moon - sorry for you, but new trails can bring fun, just sucks that it's a drive to get there.
Sandy - nice mileage. Now I feel like a slacker.
Couch - enjoy the second tip with the kids. I might be out for a mt. bike trip with DS later as well.
Ran Tehama Wildflower 50k with Sue and her extremely impressive hound-dawg Earl yesterday. It was really hot, but overall went as expected. Earl beat me by about 5 minutes. Calling him a mere dog would be insulting.

will head to the gym and hit the stationary bike (had to send my new mtn bike for a smaller frame), if my heel feels better I'll try walking the treadmill as well
“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.”
Got in a quick 4.5 with the devil dog.
