Ouch! Quit it. Ouch! Quit it. ~ Bart Simpson
Still recovering from Tuesday’s debacle. Luke and I ran a variation on the Foothills Trail yesterday at lunch. Just a quick jaunt to get things moving again. I am hoping this doesn’t set me back too much.
Sam is hanging in there but really doesn’t feel well at all. Rage is being awesome and taking care of Sam’s medical needs along with giving her lots of pets, which she loves. Siamese cats are a bit odd – they are so vocal normally, you don’t really know when they are feeling lousy. They kind of fuss all the time anyway. Part of their charm.
On the way in to work today I saw a fox running down the sidewalk with some dead thing in his mouth. There was a woman walking the opposite direction who freaked out when she saw him and took an immediate left to try to get away from him. Of course, he went right. Hilarity ensued.
For those of you trying to actually find some substantive information about running Leadville, I pinged the Boulder Trail Runners Group yesterday to get some advice on what lights work well for the night segment of the race. The consensus seems to be the Gerber LX3. I have not yet tried this out myself but plan to give it a whirl shortly. I have been using headlamps but a lot of the feedback I received indicated that one gets better results from a hand-held light while running trails. I’ll let you know.
For those of you looking for something fun to do this weekend, you should check out the Boulder Adventure Film Festival. This is an annual event that focuses on outdoor, adventure and environmental film. Screenings are held at the Boulder Theater and this year it features a filmmaker’s seminar on Saturday. Check it out!
For today’s “training”, I am hoping to hit some golf balls at lunch and then go for a Singlespeed ride post work. Ping me if you have an interest in attending either of those events.
See you out there.
