I think I am still Feeling 2006

I know we are only a few months away from 2009, but I stated thinking about why am I so achy, why has it been so hard to get back on running track. I said to myself maybe it began in 2006 Races, so many races so many miles. Then I thought about 2007 and 2008 and the miles didn't stop there.

2007 Races:
Bermuda Marathon
Rocky Raccoon 100 (DNF mile 70) (M+T)
Los Angeles Marathon
San Juan 50K
Rosarito to Ensenada 50 mile bike ride

Holcomb Valley 33 miler
*Badwater Solo 135 miles (Tanya), I paced her (60+miles)
*Claremont 5 K
Mt. Disappointment 50 miler
Bulldog 50K
Long Beach 1/2 marathon
*Javalina Jundred (100 miler) I paced her at night
Santa Barbara 9 trails (35 miles)
High Desert Ultra 50K
*Tanya only
2008 Races
Avalon 50 miler
*Calico 50K
Rocky Raccoon 100
Lost Dutchman Marathon
*Ontario 1/2 Marathon
Leona Divide 50 miler
Grand Canyon dbl crossing
San Diego 100 (DNF 70 miles M+T)
Lake Gregory 1/2 marathon
Big Bear Marathon

We don't plan on stopping the miles so Friday I had a few mugs of Golden Milk, and Saturday we hit the trails (12 miles) and I had the best run I've had in a long time. Then on Sunday we went out for 6 miles and again I felt good. The miles are not going to stop!! No way!! I'm feeling the Juice again.
Long Beach Half this weekend and the High Desert Ultra in December then onto 2009 the ski is the limit!!

I feel some PR's coming on.

Get out there and run people!!!

One love,

Okay Marc we are going to get out there and RUNNNN!!! Love that energy. Yeah, you guys are putting some miles and some. That's motivation. Thanks for your feed back, I think it was the electro's I skipped past while running. But just like you you guys I went out Sunday, the day after and ran 6 miles. My run for this weekend is 14 and I'm looking forward to it. No, my foot usually goes numb after I finish, but not while im running. Enjoy.

Thanks Dawn, going to push for a sub 1:50:00 this Sunday. The Long Beach 1/2 I feel is a fast course. Have run the full there in the past though I set a marathon PR at that time, I do not like the course.

Hey Marc, thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you at RR. It'll be my first 100. Take care of that knee, amigo.

You will do great, it's all about finishing. Just keep putting in those long back to back miles.
