Lov'n it Saturday

My tapering isn't going so well: another 14 miles of low impact done on Seabrook trails. Then, my post run lunch was an experimental for next week's race. I used a green wrap and put refried beans and guacamole in it. It was delicious. I think I'll make several of those for my 48 hour race next week...

Super Tempo Saturday

I amazed myself again. Even though yesterday was a somewhat difficult 23 miles; I jumped out of the box and ran fast for 2h14 minutes today, at 11 min/mile pace. Well, 11 min/mile is fast for me.

Spirit's Snowdrop Ultra 55

I won't lie to you. I've wanted one of these buckles since 2014. I entered the race that year, but did not finish the 100 miles. I only got 45 miles; and my knee wouldn't work after that. So I dropped. Here is the 2018 version with the shirt; which I now own. https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-TYczBTx7oIs/W...
