Not much to write about with my run today. Four miles total that includes 6 X 800M on trails at a tempo pace and also a short warm up and cool down. The XC team went out faster, but I resisted the urge to chase them and went at an easier pace. No need to peel rubber with the marathon just a week and a half away.
My friend Chuck, who paced for me at the Vermont 100, conquered his first 50-miler this past weekend at the Vermont 50 in grand fashion. And, the amazing part, he did it wearing only Vibram 5-fingers!!!! Check out his report here.
And another friend, Stephen, who also ran the Vermont 100 finally got his race report in order and posted it on his blog. It was his first 100 also, and with a 16th place finish, it's obvious the dude has talent. He also has great storytelling skills, as you'll see in his report. Well worth the wait!
