around 8 on glacier paved trail and about 5 on Ice age (paved with rocks and roots) As always distance is pretty much an educated guess. Very pleased with strength I have going up hills. Ran up every hill including some I think I have always walked. Did take a little spill in front of a family when I took my eyes off the trail. Cute little kid says to me when I pass " you fell down back there" mom says to him "it happens sometimes in nature.' Yes it does.

Thinking about mortality out there on trail because of my grandmother. I must say I never feel more alive than I do running trails. You HAVE to focus on the moment. You daydream about something and a rock or root will wake you up in a hurry.

Saturday - July 27

Lapham peak nice run in cool weather that got cut short with phone call that my grandmother is in final stages of her hospice care. As I write this, grandma is still with us and I would have had time to finish run, but that is ok.

out 12:25 (8:12 pace)

Plan was to head to track for speed session, but work got in the way again. So when I got home decided to take a 'quick' run. With all the sluggish runs I have had lately, this one felt good.

Wednesday - July 24

Run

  • 4.00 miles

just worn out. plain and simple

Spent a good part of yesterday driving to and from Chicago and sitting at O'Hare to send off my daughter and our exchange student to Spain. Wanted to run, but just too exhausted when I got back at about 8pm. Will try and run tonight. In case it is not obvious, I will not be doing tri-ing for children's this weekend. Still have not ridden my bike or swam all summer. It is starting to look like the only thing left to confirm my retirement from tris, is to hold a press conference.
