Great run to have done. Woke up to a freaking blizzard, but it passed and the sun came out, so Shane and I hit the pavement. Ran around Pineview and up Trappers up to snowbasin and down the old basin road. The 3 miles on the packed snow were a bugger! Sinking a few inches with each step. A few good things about the run though - good time on my feet - need to get ready for Buffalo, ran with a hand held and hpl 020 vest again - worked great. Used carb-pro most of the way fueled me well. We'll see how the legs feel tomorra. Jagar bomb anyone?

Early morning run down South Fork with Jamie and Hairdog. Ran with the HPL 020 and hand held. Felt good. Temps a little cool, but not freezing. A little head wind, but not to bad. Added on a little around Eden to hit 15. Watch was dead when I got to the start so, no times or splits. Took a little over 2 hours though.

North BSL trail run this morning... Headed out solo - a bit windy up to the service road - then it was about perfect weather. Trail in great shape. Out to the second bridge - upper trail on the way back. Hard to beat! Although my legs were more beat up from Sat/Mon then I expected...

Well - sweet run with gdoc and HD. Decided to get some training in for the Ogden Marathon - so we went up to the start and ran back to my place. Cold cold.. but ok. Felt good throughout had the handheld with CarbPro to fuel - going to use this for the Buffalo 50k next sat. Pushed the pace the last two miles around 7 minute miles..Another great week in the books.

Wanted to hit the BSH North after work, but the winds and rain came and I lost motivation. Hit the tM-n-law 'o doom to get the legs moving a bit. Will try the bench tomorrow... Where'd spring go!

First Ultra in the Books! Did the Antelope Island Buffalo 50K today! Longest consecutive running for me - eva. Here's the breakdown. Went into this with one goal break 6 hrs. I knew it was about a mile longer then a "official" 50K - I ran the 25K version last year which I loved. I was hoping to get close to 5:30 but would be happy with anything under 6!

Race started at 8:00 with temps in the mid 30's and some wind. So I opted for tights and a few layers on top. For Hydration and Fuel I just planned on using CarbPro mixed with my water and a Gu at every Aid station - This worked great. I took an endurolyte at the mid point - probably could have used anther around mile 21! Mile breakdown:

Miles 1- 3 Have an elevation gain of 680 ft. Started about mid pack felt good through these miles. Glad to have gloves and tights - wind was chilly.

Miles 4-5 Avg around 8:30's Still feeling good, but holding back a bit knowing I have a long way to go.

Mile 6 Climb to Elephant head aid station. Steep sucka. Took off the gloves and fleece jacket here.

Mile 7 Some Down hill 8 minute mile here

Miles 8-10 Switchback ally. Climb back up to Elephant head. 772 elevation gain.

Miles 11-16 Avg around a 9 minute mile down to the turn around aid station. Spent a few minutes at the station - switched hats and put the head phones and glasses on. Knowing I had to do the loop one more time!! Felt decent here - took an endurolyte.

Miles 17-19 Climb back up to the saddle trail. Had to dodge some horses here. Tough climb back up...

Mile 20-22 Felt decent through here - feeling the climb up elephant in my legs...

Saw G-Doc at the Aid station - he looked fresh as a summers day. He had a great race too! Took off two of my shirt layers and it felt good - to be running in short sleeves.

Mile 23  Needed downhill, but could only muster a 9 minute mile. Side started cramping up on me. Should’ a taken another endurolyte.

Miles 24-26 Another climb up switchback ally. Ended up walking more than I wanted to, due to the side cramp. Got passed by 5-6 people on this section.

At the Aid station I had a few oranges and took a little more time to regroup for the last 5 miles and get the side under control.

Miles 27-32 Knew 5:30 was outta reach, but wanted to get under 6 for shizzle. Legs started coming back a bit so I was letting them roll ( as much as you can at this point ). Shane was on the trail with about 2.5 left - so it was good to finish it out with him - last mile 8:29.

Long report - sorry! But I'm happy the race went as good as it did - despite the side problem. This was the furthest I've ever run!! Ya Buddy...

Met Jon after the race. He had a great race. Hope things keep rollin for him this year. Also - met Erika - she too had a great 25K! Trail FRBers... We'll need some new gear.
