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,”

One quick way to get an aerobic workout. Get in a swimming pool that is at least 6 ft. deep. Then stand in place, and do "hundred yard dashes" i.e. pump your arms and legs as fast as you can for 30 seconds or so, until you feel spent. Then rest about 10-15 seconds and repeat; do this eight times; it's a Tabata routine, but extremely low impact. Intense intervals with very short rest is much more effective than long runs and bike rides, per the amount of time put in.

Finished a "high volume week". Tuesday NIAD with Eric our money's worth out of in-a-day, clocking in at 23 hours 32 minutes! Good chance Eric at 63 is oldest to do this, and with me at 51 we have an impressive combined age of 114. Kudos to Eric!

For me this was a test of the benefits of a lot of aerobic base and muscular endurance work over the summer, without much climbing. Felt pretty good overall.

Roller skied the Bay trail from Berkeley to pt. richmond and back Saturday, very fun, then Sunday ran a double Dipsea. In hindsight this run deserved a rest day before, but it went well, super cool run!

About to start snowing on Donner Summit...hope to get something in tomorrow if it isn't a blizzard...


Very cool photo by Kristal Leonard pro park photographer of the milky way and the action on the Nose last Tuesday. Brightest light at Camp 5 is mine at about 10:45...4 lights above are two of the 5 teams that did NIAD that day!

Good work on the NAID Peter. I'm up in Skaha taking a fun break from XC/Enduro type stuff. I'll keep you posted if there are any good events up in the WA/BC area this winter.
