Rode Dills' MTN Bike at Highline Canal. I was intending to ride with him as he ran his 20 miler the whole way but he started without me... I rode hard for the first 7 miles then caught mark... rode along with him as he ran for 5 miles. I was freezing since I was wearing running shorts, so at mile 12 I left him and rode back hard.
It was rough

I LOVE WIND. I hope it stays windy forever... Please wind... blow harder...

Weighed in this morning... not something I do very often... I am a little heavy, but my body fat is pretty good. I have been eating poorly lately... lots of junk. I need to check myself for the next 9 days and hopefully drop a couple of pounds... YIKES

Ran the 1st half of the Colorado Marathon course for the second time! Head winds again, but hopefully this will help me with a psychological advantage on race day if there are no winds at 6 AM.

I ran pretty well but I am pretty fatigued overall.

2. 6:32
3. 6:44
4. 6:35
5. 6:39

My split for 13.1 miles was 1:26:43 which is a bit slower than my projected race pace, but there was a lot of wind, it was warm (2pm run), and I am not recovered from my training yet. Overall a good effort

Brutal, gruesome, torturous!

Easy run around Wash Park and back... Did I say that it was windy today?
