The expectation of peace and safety on public land outweighs dog owners' rights. Youdon't have to have a dog, but you do have the right to free travel. The bigger responsibility falls on the dog owner.

18 Hr's of O' Town. Great concept for a race (http://www.r-scape.com). A team of misfits Tracy, Clayton, Matt, myself, Jack, and Jarrod signed up to do this a few months back. In short you have 18 hrs to do as many loops of the 6 mile course as possible between the time of 6PM and Noon the next day. Runner 1 goes and exchanges with Runner two etc. The great idea is the Homestead - with a non moving race it's a party back at the homestead. All the teams have a 20ft x 20ft area that they can set up whatever.. The Bonnivlle High School CC team had couch's a big tv for xbox etc. Roosters catered a dinner - which was awesome. For the 50 Dollar cost - great value as compared with a lot of races out there now.

Anyway it was 8:30 PM  when I ran for the first time in the 4 slot. Felt good but it was super muggy and HOT from the rainstorm and lightning just north of us.. We escaped the major storm which was good! Ran shirtless - thought I should mention that.

Lap two - left at about 2:30 AM - still very hot out. Very dark out so, makes for having to pay very close attention as to not face plant. Felt pretty good - didn't get passed on this run. Passed a ton of people.

Time 56:36 miles 6.0 Vert 1050

Lap three first run in light left 7:30ish AM - first run with no flashlight - feeling the effects of the prior two runs though, but was able to manage 56:14 which I was happy with. Legs were on fire going up the ups!

Time 56:14 miles 6.0 Vert 1050

 

Thoughts - I need to get back in shape!!!!!!!

Sweet LCC trail run up the White Pine Trail with Brohiem GDOCdus.  The five miles up to the lake are a grinder. It was a run, hike combination day today for sure - need to work on my uphill gears. Being up at elevation was a factor fo' shizzle. Bro G' solid. Glad he was willing to wake up early for this one. Need to hit Red Pine now..

Early Eden/Liberty cruise. Decided to head to the Jr. High and do some weak attempt of speed work on the track. Legs felt a bit rusty and heavy, but good morning out.

Dedcided I needed to get a good grinder in on a sweet trail. So, hit Bryce's Snowbasin half+ starting at Wheelers. Climb up wheelers to Art Nord felt good. About half way up East Fork A herd of Turkeys were crossing the trail so, waited for them for a minute. Pretty cool sight though there were about 30 of them. Then towards the top of East Fork three huge COWS were in the trail and not wanting to move. Took a few minutes and some stick throwing to get them to wander off the trail.

Once up on Green Pond trail - I remembered how nice that trail is. Great section over to ski hill at snowbasin. Cruised along Green pond over to needles and maples trails. Dropped down Wheeler trail - Ice Box (which is perfect right now!!) and back down wheelers. Great run with my run up Green Pond after missing the Needles connection I had it at 13.47 with 3007 Vert. in 2:28. Had to deal with a ton of mtn bikes / turkeys / Cows.

Had at least three hikers say - look this guys running this.. That always makes me try a little harder!!

Great day under the Blue Dome.

Early dog laden run this AM. Headed over to the track at Jr. High and during my first 800 a huge roving Black lab mix/mut was in full attack mode. I'd run it'd bark and jump and run then lay down on the track and tempt me to run again... Seriously should'a brought the .38 this morning. World would'a been a better place.

Indian Trail cruise this AM with a motley crew. Dropped a car at Smokey and headed to TH at 22nd. Grinder-fest up to the little shelter cabin. Pushed the pace down to smokey - very technical trail - Love it!

Peace.
