5m, 0:42, 20′ – Dripping Springs, Mazama
First real run in a month and a half. For sure I went out to hard, but I had to see if I still could.

7m, 1:36, ~2700′ – Tiger
First run with my friend Ben and another of many runs with my friend, Nate. I’m ridiculously out of shape. But it’s good to be back on the trails.

Back in the saddle and the saddle is hard. It’s my usual urban Capitol Hill loop.

Three days in a row? What is happening to my body? Why am I hurting – everywhere? I only ran 3 miles! Thank goodness tomorrow is a rest day.

Well, yeah, now that’s more like it. I should probably hydrate myself with a nice cold tasty beverage.

Ben thought the run was slow. Nate and I thought the run was fast. Can you guess who’s the fast runner?

I don’t remember anything about this run other than it was not at “race pace”.

Travel day to Mazama

10m, 1:22, ~600′ – Mazama
12″ of snow and 15 degrees (f) does not make for a good trail run, so I took to the road (which still had bits of snow and ice) with my new trail shoes to see what I could do. It was cold. The water in the exposed tube of my bladder froze within a half hour. One pair of thin tights was not sufficient to stay warm. There was a 10mph headwind when I got out to the meadow and there was no tree cover to block the wind. I still ran. And I felt decently good.
