Ran with my buddy Rachel. That girl is just fast. This route was entirely uphill and we ran it much faster than I would have if she didn't push the pace.

UGH... really late night last night at the bar. I need to not do that to myself :) Well, I'm off to attempt the Copper Triangle... it's getting late, so I better roll. Speaking of the Copper triangle: An informal but amazingly HOT group of athletes are going to be doing the triangle on Monday... Join us! http://beginnertriathlete.com/discussion/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=130343&posts=1&start=1

Trail run!
Ran from Lions Head to Eagles Nest via the Berry picker trail.

3m with about 3000 feet of climbing. I got lost because it got dark early tonight. I found myself on a steep and technical downhill MTN bike course with obstacles. Eventually I found the service road and got back to Lions Head. ended up running 2.4 extra miles... but it was worth it!

Slow trail run... tight but not too bad. I'll continue to take it easy for a while.

Starting to feel a little better. But I am still feeling very tired and with some soreness remaining. I think I am going to try a short easy run this morning and that will probably be it for me.

Rode up Vail Pass but turned around before reaching the top because of the weather...

Justin just called me. Apparently I have been dubbed the 2008 Altitude Adjusted Most Valuable Player! How cool!! I totally didn't expect that especially since Ted and Hans had such smoking legs this weekend.

My 3 legs at The Hood to Coast Relay totaled 17.88 miles and my AVG Per Mile was 5:55 per mile (Last year I averaged 6:10). Not bad considering two of my legs had 6-700 foot climbs in them... and about a 15 sec per mile improvement over last year! Travel day home. I'm very tired. We took 2nd place in the Sub-Masters (30-40 yr old) division and 14th place overall (out of 1400 teams). We improved in our AG and in our overall placings... however we were 6 minutes slower than last year due to some technical errors and the loss of one of our best and most spirited runners, Justin. We did replace him with a ringer who has run a 2:25 marathon, however his time was 9 minutes slower than Justin's from the year before. Hopefully next year Justin is healthy so that we can take another stab at running the course in less than 20 hours. Our time this year was 20:26:something. Mark and Adam did awesome! I brought them onto the team to replace a couple of guys who couldn't make it and they both slayed. They both shaved a lot of time from last year. They made me proud! So much fun... Beer drinking and debauchery yesterday! I have more to share! More tomorrow and a race report soon! Bed now! 'nite...
