Ran the rayburn single track this morning on a cool crisp day (31 deg!). Jay and two student newbie trail runners came along for the ride with one bailing after 10 minutes and the other hanging strong until the finish (53 minutes). Jay and I then hit a short loop for an additional 15 minutes at warp speed. Felt good to run easy today then pick it up at the end. Spoke with Jay about the easy running I've been doing (with all the newbies showin up) and i think its actually helped me out in my recovery. I had never really taken "easy" days up to this point, but now see some benefits.
Put in for the lottery for the Massanutten 100 miler in VA the second weekend in May. Without my wife knowing... She's due the first week of June.....i got in....what do I do?
