Great Run

I haven't blogged about running here in a while. I'm up in Arlington, WA, for a few days, but training for the Humboldt Redwoods Marathon can't go on hold at this stage. The race is less than a month away. I'm at the stage where my Saturday long runs are up to twenty miles.

I forgot how much I love to run in the Northwest. They have trails up here to accommodate runners. Today's run was flat - Florida flat. Back home in Eureka, the only flat spot I know is the high school track. Everywhere else is either uphill or down hill. And there's no place for off road running.

So I get here and find this great trail out by the local airport trails through the woods and bunny rabbits and junk. I got this five mile run done in 42:10. That's less than eight and a half minute/miles which is pretty good for me.

Tomorrow I have to do eight. If I go as quick or quicker, I'll let you know. If not, well you probably won't hear from me about it.

ok Bryon...I admit...I have stopped running, but watching you throw down like this is inspiring. I'm going back to hitting the pavement.
