Visited Neal up at Barr Camp this AM. While COS was decimated by the February blizzard of '12, 10,200' actually got about a foot of the white stuff. The wind hadn't picked up when I went up, so most of the trees still held some snow. Super cool. The new snow actually improved trail conditions, as the shaded parts had turned to ice over the past few weeks.
Yesterday's 18 on the Santa Fe worked my body pretty good; today's run was good for the soul. Sore legs + snow = a very slow day...that was fine today, as it gave me more time to enjoy the scenery. You'd think that this backdrop would eventually get old. Nope.
Went to a HS track/xc clinic on Friday/Saturday and had the chance to talk for a bit with Jim Ryun. He let me peruse his training log from 1968. No Garmin uploads for him I guess.
I'm still in awe over the results down in Texas yesterday. Brooks sub-15:00. Marc, Dan, and Andy getting it done. W-O-W. I was hoping to run the 50 down there until my back gave me fits in November/December. Figured I wouldn't be in shape for anything by then.
Another 60ish-mile week in the books. I wanna race. Soon!
