me, my wife, and a friend ran a 5k mud run on saturday. It was a lot of fun! We ended up "winning" our heat and beating most of the heat that started before us...haha



The final obstacle was crossing a chest deep river while a fan boat blasted 60mph wind at you! It was pretty intense!

^Love me some mud runs!

Ran 7 warm miles while in Ft. Worth, @ Trinity Park, and ran 4 miles of Fartleks around the Denver University area last night. Heading out back home to Tampa, and looking forward at least three barefoot beach runs!

got 30 miles in, barely missed a run mid-week due to rain/mud, ran one day on the dreadmill- couldn't muster another

5.2/6.1(treadmill)/13/6

today's run was a little challenging, had to buck 6" of heavy, wet snow- if we get anymore I'm going to break out my running snowshoes for tomorrow

My 5 or so weeks of gym going/constant running training is paying off! Just finished my longest continuous run to date. 2.37 miles at 9:13 mph. Is it pretty sad compared to everyone else here...yep haha. But a pretty pleasing accomplishment for myself. I carried a 12oz water bottle just in case but I never even cracked it open. Then when I got back I took one small sip and forgot about it.

Also when I got back by the time I walked through the front door and went up stairs I wasn't even winded or breathing heavy, compared to when I first started I would go like half that and get back and pant like a dog and drink 3 cups of water. 2.37 miles outdoors, no problem...however anything over a mile on a treadmill and I die and can hardly finish it im so bored. I just run a mile on the treadmill when I go to the gym, but it is still paying off! Im doing all my running in VFFs, and im working up to run a comfortable 5k. I could probably do one now, but i dont want to look like a moron. I want to just be able to sit back and enjoy the ride.

Hey Idtrucks, Way to go man!!!! What I have learned is dont compare yourself to anyone. I love running halfs. Some people can do them in and hour some others 3. Its all good man. I will never be a fast distance runner but I love doing races and trying to beat my time not some guy who is busting out 5:45 miles to my 9's.

Congrats on the run! Keep it up it will get easier and funner, Ya I said "funner" it really is a word.

I finished my first Biathlon yesterday! it was a 2/15ride/2 My times were 12:44, 48:55, 14:12. I am so stoked I didnt even think i was gonna come in under 1.5 hours. My overall time was 1:18:55 (transition time sucked hard!). I placed 22nd overall and 3rd in my age group. 130 people finished the race in official time.

Cant wait for my next half on May 5th!

^ sweet!

I had a pretty good week, despite the weather, 31.8 miles 3.5/5.2/5.8 (dreadmill)/7.5/9.8

we had enough snow that two days I ran in snowshoes! it was just about gone yesterday, but was wet and sloppy w/ mud- this morning I went out and low and behold......... snowing again

I stayed up higher to stay out of the mud, was a great run- running mostly off trail, just running ridges out- peeking over the edge and then run another out

That is just NUTZ!

From the 14th, til the 20th I was home in Tampa. Which means I missed three snowstorms here in Denver! :jump:

I also got to have to barefoot and shirtless runs @ Clearwater Beach, while my freinds and co-workers were buried with snow!

had a good week- 41.4 miles 8.1/5.2/7.2/14.1/6.8

my 14 mile run was a doozy- ran some new country, the only thing using these "trails" have been mule deer- there probably hasn't been a foot print in there for years it quite a while to finish the run as I did a lot of turning around- ridge ending abruptly, going up when I should have gone down and vice versa, also lots of elevation gain/loss- probably 3000'-ish

my run today was pretty easy, I brought my little folding saw and spent as much time sawing as I did running, but the payoff will be sweet the next time I run it

I had 26.5 miles for the week. It should've been 30, but I got a bit derailed last night...

I went trail running, just before the sunset. I was planning on doing 9 maybe 10 or even 11 miles. 3 miles into it, I saw a bunch of coyote action going on. I ran back to my car, and have a new trail PR to boot!

Do y'all have any "wild life" encounter techniques, when running solo?

the only wildlife that would be of concern running for me is grizzlies, when I run (or hike) in grizzly country I always carry bear spray.

black bears, lions, coyotes- simply stand your ground, stand tall, holler, etc- in the very (very) rare instance they were to attack, fight like hell and they should be leaving in a hurry

btw our biologists last year discovered that bear spray is effective on lions, it's also very effective for canids as well- so you could always strap a can on and you'd be prepared
