The realization that I'm on spring break hit today, as I was able to smugly grin and turn my 5:15 alarm off instead of snooze. I'm looking to have two very low-key days in preparation for Wednesday's 2 x 4 mile workout. Definitely accomplished that this morning.
Stef had never been to Williams, and I had offered to show her. Straightforward day, straightforward run. Made it to Rampart Range Rd. and turned around. Nice way to loosen up after the weekend - 78 minutes, 6.3 miles, 1,700'. Tried out the new Inov-8 X-Talon's. As usual, I love their fit. I feel it gets me much closer to the trail than even my RocLite's.
I think I found a new energy drink.
Took a long look at the current PPA and PPM start lists last night. Lots of interesting stuff there, especially the rookie flatlanders with predicted times of 1:40 for PPA. Looks like Kimmel is doubling, too. Judging by her predicted time of 2:33 in the Ascent, she plans on getting after it this summer. No other doublers seem capable of breaking 8:00, let alone 7:00. We'll see how many comp entries come in between now and Augusts.
State Radio - one of those bands that I somehow passed over for years. Making up for lost time with them these days.
