Summer Intro 5k






We had a good race today. It took quite a bit of work to get the course ready for race day and it was a bit short, but I think it's a sweet loop that will be fun to train on as well. I had a decent race . Definitely shoulda started a bit easier. I ran the first mile in 4th and then I blew up. I couldn't smoke the long downhill like I wanted because I was still trying to recover from the hills. I think I finished 8th or 9th in 19:25. Some dude tried to blow by me at the finish, but he got shut down.
Jackson and his friend Austin both ran the race and they were talking about doing the 15 mile Psummer Psycho so they can get a medal.
I had to go to work after, but some of the Nerds went to work on the Psummer Psycho course. I get out there and do some work soon.

Awesome


This picture is awesome. It gives me goosebumps. It's Greg LeMond winning the 1989 World Championships...in the rain. Ran the course for next Saturdays summer intro race today. It's a good course with a sweet fast finish. When I was almost back home the cold front rolled in and it felt like someone cranked up the A/C, or would you crank it down? Whatever, it got cold. I saw an owl today too.

Shrooms



Here are a couple of lovely mushroom pics. Morels and oysters. I also recently found a nice batch of suphur shelf(picture soon) mushrooms. All are edible and delicious.For more info on edible mushrooms check out americanmushrooms.com The running and riding is going okay. Next Saturday(6/21) is the summer intro trail race at Wyco lake. We've decided to do a 5k run this year and we've blazed some new trails so it should be an awesome course. Correction: It is an awesome course.
