Today was the final long mountain climb run for Blake and I before attempting Rim to Rim to Rim 2 weeks from today.  Once again we ascended Crossman Peak from my house climbing about 4200 feet over 13 miles then ran back down.  Today's run was by far the best one we've done.  We both felt really good so it was a confidence boaster for the upcomming run.

I took a much needed rest day today and just did some core work and foam rolling.

Did some core work followed by walking lunges then a few strides before running the trails with Blake this morning.  Total 8 miles

I'm going to take a rest day tomorrow before Blake and I tackle a 26 mile Crossman Peak run on Friday.

Blake just got his Boston Marathon acceptance!  The cutoff was 2 minutes 9 seconds and he was 2 minutes 30 somthing seconds.  Way to go Blake.  We are going to have a blast at your first Boston!

Did some running drills and strides while waiting for Blake then ran some trails totalling a little over 8 miles.  Finished up with some core work.

Legs felt a bit heavy this moring.
