100.9 miles 27 hours 3 minutes.

Thanks for the pacing through the night Atch, couldn't have done it without you.

If anyone wants to know: Ultra running is like climbing in that it has all the suffering but none of the climbing.

Congrats on the ultra.....I hope do complete one next year and have bucked down now.

Very nice "Down and Dirty" 10.5 mile logging road race this past weekend. Killer 4 mile hill. Sore, but not as sore as the 1/2 marathon 2 weeks ago. People aren't pointing and laughing at the way I walk now. Need to sign up for a December event to keep this train rolling....
looking sketchy there...

Got a new phone and have signed up for Strava... Wow, it really helps me push myself to ride more and to push my pace (perhaps too much) ... in order to beat prior times and climb the ranks of other riders' best times.

I'm hoping to get in shape enough to complete a long (56+ mile) Mt. Bike race in April -- with some degree of aplomb. Last time I did it was in 1998, but I doubt that I'll beat my prior times, being 14 years older.

I was wondering about doing the Seattle Half-Marathon on crutches in 2 weeks. I did my first serious workout 2 days ago and went pretty hard for an hour. I need to get to the track and see how fast I can do a mile. I broke an ankle 1 month ago!

Wait till next year and you can legally stoke up and float your way through...

Will have to think about that. Might be worth it to get a record.

I think there is some mockery going on here....If you think this is merely narcissm - saying your goals out loud helps keep you motivated. At least that works for me. My little goals seem outrageous to some and laughably pedestrian to others.

Psyched to get me orthotics replaced - after 8 years and wearing them very thin. Managed to run 5 without getting blisters. Old shoes and footbeds for 8 miles today. Hope the break-in period continues to go well.

This is the hardest time of the year for me. There just doesn't seem to be enough daylight. Keep showing me how to put one foot in front of the other.

My last MTB ride this season in Moab (boo hoo) Flat Pass, anything but. Probably some of the hardest 10 miles MTB I've ever done. (With segments called "Metal Masher" I should have known)

Susan, I figured you would get a kick out of this ride a guy uploaded to Strava yesterday:




Here's the link to the Strava page:

Oh thanks HK...I DO love it. That is really detailed. I saw one that was a heart on some TV ad. It's pretty interesting how much climbing he got in.
It must be interesting to plan it out.
I use Strava also (gadget whore here) but I frequently lose the tracks because my iPhone powers down before I finish.
THANKS, Susan
