6 miler

Started the morning off with a tough 6 miler. I did 4 yesterday, so this made 10 in 2 days. The first 2 miles felt great, but by mile 5 the legs were hurting. The final mile felt better since I knew this pain was coming to an end. Its only going to get harder from here in the next few weeks! This was a good character building day.

Around the mile 5 marker is a 3/4 mile portion of trail running, which is spectacular. Saw a big beethoven type dog that from a distance looked like a black bear. Then soon after that was an absolutely GORGEOUS pure white Boxer. He was not on a leash and ran along side me for a bit to say hello. That lifted my spirits a bit.

I am finally reading Dean Karnazes' "Ultramarathon Man." Its been a quick read so far; Im only half way through it, but man, he is a BAMF! I think im about to start reading the part about the Death Valley ultra. Melted shoes anyone?


  1. One of my favorite books ever! I met Dean and bought a signed copy at the NY Marathon expo a few years ago. He is awesome.

    Are you doing IMNO 70.3?

  2. How is the book?
    I am reading 50/50 by Dean. I went to the bookstore the other day, and they did not have Ultramarathon Man, so I had to setttle for 50/50.
    i really like mine. really inspiring! But the man is a freak!!!! lol
