Longest Run Yet

Slowly becoming a long distance runner... It was wet and drizzling and I only had a few hours of sleep but I felt good. Started out slow then gradually picked up the pace on a nice trail nearby. Did 13.1 miles (half marathon) in just under 2 hours, then came home, got my boy and put him in the stroller and ran a few more, slowly. After a warm bath and some healthy food I felt surprisingly good, not very sore the next day either.

Big Fun

Like father like daughter (bike seats with kids):

8 hr mtb

My brother and I did a 2 man 8hr mtb relay race a few weekends ago near Idyllwild.

It was a blast! More here.

2nd half

Did my 2nd half marathon the other weekend with my brother Greg who works for Team DUKE. It was fun. That's me in the middle.

poison oak

My poison oak is finally almost gone. It has been 3 weeks. This was from a week and a half ago or so. No more riding in dense little wet canyons for me, this was horrible! Right in my "elbow pit", about 5 inches long.
