|L to R (Ron, Mary, Dave, Nica)|
This past Saturday I ran a short 10 mile race (Annapolis Striders Cherry Pit 10 Miler) just to open up the legs a bit and get a bit of speed work in. I ended up running a bit faster then I wanted to and ended up setting another PR for a 10 mile race with a 1:26:06 time. Not too bad, but not what I have been training for. Maybe one of these days I will do some more speed workouts and see what time I can do in a 10 miler. BTW congrats to Rose for putting in a smokin' time of 1:22:55, I am sure she didn't even break a sweat.
I am very excited about this weekend as it time for the Bull Run Run 50 Miler in Clifton, VA. Should be a bit wet as the weather forecast is calling for 1/2" of rain on Friday and possible showers on Saturday. If there is one thing you can't change it's the weather, so I am not gonna worry about it but I need to pack as if it will rain. I even joined a team for this race, the Ultra-holics. The team is comprise of Ron, Dave, Kevin, and I. Championship here we come!!!! (or "winning"as Charlie Sheen might say) I just purchased a new Garmin gps 310xt and that thing is cool. I am going to wear it during the race, so I am sure I will have lots of graphs and other boring nerdy charts to post next week when I write my review on the race.
See ya on the trails,
