Oh hai guyz!
So I was going balls out all last winter, spring, and summer. Many races and training miles that culminated into a great half year, capped by the Silver Rush 50 Miler in the mountains of Leadville Colorado. I am behind on a few race reports and will be doing some more writing for my column in Ultrarunning Magazine, as well as posting some of my older articles on my site.
I purchased a new (old) house perched at the edge of town on a few acres. The problems is that it was built by in 1971 and decorated and furnished by Carol Brady and The Partridge Family. Well, not really, but there was so much shag carpet and funky velvet wallpaper that it would make your head spin. Directly across from the baby shit yellow toilet in the master bath was a gawd awsful blue bidet. Yes. Really. A blue bidet. If you do not know what that is – google it.
Long story short, I have been remodeling this place since summer working evenings and weekends, so running has not happened. Still hammering out HIIT workouts at least 3 days a week, and some weight training, but 10-20 miles a week running at most. Candi and I did run the 50K at FlatRock – number 6 in a row for me – but paid a pretty steep price in pain. So yeah, not much in the way of ultrarunning or any running for that matter.
I am ready to make a comeback. House project is slowing down with a bunch of the heavy work done. Comeback writing, running, and hell maybe some video making.
Keep an eye out – you might find me in the middle of the pack.
