Williams Canyon

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.
