Missed Sunday - something about being up for 22 hours on Saturday and baking my feet. Damn, the feet hurt on Monday. Today was much better with the cool weather. 8 miles of hills and thrills.

Fat Paul, the first six or so miles are steep, sandy, And rocky. It's up hill in general, some short parts you might want to use your hands. It's a four wheel drive road that had me shaking my head in parts until I would get to the top of one of the steep sections and find huge bolt anchors several inches across that assume are for connecting to winch cables to pull rigs up what would otherwise be I possible terrain. For a full size vehicle (but I drive a Saab so what do I know?) some of it approaching third class. A cool hike! After the highest point it gets much easier and there Is sandy downhill for three or so miles. Before rejoins the Kane creek road there is fairly steep, technical trail, descending several hundred feet in the last half mile. I lost the trail several times and ended up doing fifth class moves (in five fingers! ) in spots. I'm sure it will be more straight fwd when they have the course marked. Once on the road, it's uphill for at least a half mile, up some switchbacks, etc. another couple miles down a rocky road get you back to the start .

I dont know how you're gonna train at sea level, but I'd say run every hill you can find! It was pretty warm, 80's, when I ran it, and I don't deal well with heat. So that probablly made it seem worse, than it really was. It'll be cooler in November!

Roller ski level 3 intervals in St. Louis, Forest Park. Not used to training with such humidity! Clothes were soaked, like I jumped in the lake...opted for taxi back to hotel rather than dripping all over the Metro.

Here for 5 days with Bandaloop. Looking to trail run somewhere tomorrow.

I'm told I have very nice feet for a man.....

New current favorite Moab area trailrun!
In my continuing effort to hangdog the Moab trail marathon, I ran (indeed in 5fingers) a 6.7 mile loop, amasaback parking to amasaback parking, over the cliffhanger, and Jackson trails. Beautiful terrain, spectacular views, waist deep Kane creek crossing, who could ask for more?

The Jackson's trail deserves special note. This is an excellent, somewhat rough hiking/running trail, but it reminds me again of the high standard at which some people around here mtn bike! No way would I do that! Narrow loose trails, sheer drops, all kinds of scary shirt! I' dbe walking my bike/ giving it a ride!

Edit: I'm going to beef up my five fingers, I've been running / Guiding in Bikilia's, but I'm lusting after the spyridons, lots more sticky rubber and thicker sole. And they are on sale.

Edit 2: oh and yesterday I did a six mile mtb ride after guiding a wet cnyn... Someone has to keep the business going while the boss is puking up Castelton

Wrong turn winner!

The 34-year-old eventually asked a course official how much farther to the finish line.

“Once I realized what I had done, I figured, well I’ll just run 20 miles and use it as a long run and call it a day,” she said.

That was until she noticed very few people ahead of her. She asked the official if it would count if she ran the full marathon. After a brief word with the race director, she learned her time would be honored.

So, onward she ran.

Having only run 20 miles prior to this race, Fitzmaurice said nearing the finish line was “surreal.”

“I just kept thinking you can do this, just get it done. The last couple miles were really tough,” she told the wire service.

With her final time of 3:11:48, Fitzmaurice won the women’s division, took 10th place overall and qualified for the Boston Marathon. The maximum time for Fitzmaurice to qualify for Boston was 3:35:00.

In addition to adrenaline pulling her through, she said her success, in part, was due to how fast she was running during the first half of the race.

“If I knew I was going to be running the full marathon I probably wouldn’t have ran so fast. So maybe it was a good thing,”

3 mile run up Bald Mountain in Harriman State Park, coughed up a lung, then 3 mile much-faster-run down Bald Mountain.
