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.
