Personal:

I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

AM-12 on the beach in Oceanside, OR. Nice beach to run on, though not much vert other than the 200 ft trail from the house. Plus running on the flat, soft surface sure strains my calves a bit. Think I'll head into the woods next.

AM- 12 very slow miles winding around the neighborhoods trying to find trails wherever I could. Saw 2 deer within 10 to 20 ft. Ran to a lighthouse then down a huge cliff to the beach. Enjoyable run, if slow. 2000 odd ft climb, 12 miles in 2 hrs. Cool and very foggy.

AM- headed up into the hills above Oceanside on the logging roads today.  Most of the roads I ran were nice dirt/gravel roads, but some were long abandoned and overgrown with weeds.  Saw 3 deer and only 1 guy in a truck.  As bad as I felt yesterday, I felt great today- even ran some sub-6:30 miles at the end, basically doing a 4 or 5 mile tempo.  Kinda cool running through some deep, dark woods where you almost need your headlamp, then through some clear-cut sections with nice views of the Tillamook valley and the ocean.  Nice day.  13.5 miles total with 1800 ft climb in 1:50.

AM- 21.5 miles on the logging roads around Oceanside. Enjoyed myself and felt good. Saw 6 adult elk, then later saw a spotted baby elk by itself. Also found the way to the tower at the high point on the peninsula. 3300 ft climbing, 3:05.

AM- I rarely run the day after a long run so wasn't sure how I would feel. Ended up ok, if sluggish. Last run in Oregon, so I tried to find new stuff. Ran single track to the lighthouse and beach, then ran down the closed highway (landslide in Jan took out a section). On the far side, I found a dirt road that led to a state park where I ran 2 miles on the beach before turning around. On the way back up the dirt road, I found another single track that I followed a ways till it turned the wrong direction. After following a game trail and then 20 min of bush whacking (good Barkley training?), I was back near the lighthouse for the run back. Very slow run with lots of detours, technical terrain, and stops. 13.5 miles with 2300 ft climbing in 2:25 or so.

This was my highest mileage week in 2 months. I only had 6 runs but that totaled 12 hrs 20 min running, so generally fairly long runs.
