Day389 Race

I might be biting off more than I could chew this weekend for I am beat. I have slept whole afternoon on Sunday to recover. First off, I did the Devil Dog 50k puppy/corona edition. I first heard of the Devil Dog 100 last year from someone at the Eastern Divide. He did the Devil… Continue reading Day389 Race

Day386 VDM

I did the real VDM – Vicky’s Death/*Delightful March, a run by the local Virginia Happy Trail People. What I mean by real is that I ran one like it back in October, almost two months ago (here), except this time I did the full loop instead of skipping Hawksbill Mnt. I know about Virginia… Continue reading Day386 VDM

Day385

closure maybe. Being alive meaning having ambition and drive. I can do this and that. I have a trip this weekend and a race next week. I also have work to do before I leave. Work work. Company stuff. My mind immediately returned to reality after the burial of my grandmother. I took the day… Continue reading Day385

Day 384

I am back to my usual of trying to scape together enough content for a post. I finished the 48 hours run. It was not much to say except for the lack of sleep – but I cheated a little with an hour extra sleep one night during the graveyard shift. I think running a… Continue reading Day 384

Day383 training cont

I started this fad training since Friday that has been a circulated the running community this spring called 4 by 4 by 48 (4x4x48) run.

I have not been training specifically for the Rocky Raccoon 100. I like the name. I have been calling it the Raccoon Race. I wanted to have a plan for training this race. I downloaded one from the internet but have not followed it. I know I am much behind on many runs. We when… Continue reading Day382 training

Day381 reset

After a big race, I need some time to reset. A bunch of thoughts colliding inside or still fermenting that are not ready to put into words yet. Life for me is hopping from one high point to another. Now it is like I’m in a peaceful valley. My mind is still pretty much being… Continue reading Day381 reset

Day380 Stone Mill 50

I ran the Stone Mill 50. There are reports out on the internet about this race, so I won’t go too much into it. Yes there were swamp pits and stream crossings. Most trails are dry and runable (smooth). It is enjoyable if you like trail. Not for clean road runner people though. This year… Continue reading Day380 Stone Mill 50
