Glad you had a great one. I'm impressed at how you are able to maintain your level of running fitness even though you have had to cut way back on your runs. Cross training helps, but I still think it's impressive. I've often wondered if it is purely a function of physiology or if their is some innate genetic component to it that allows one person to maintain fitness better than another. I probably ought to ask Cougar what he thinks. Sorry to ramble on...

My house was 62 degrees when I got up! I had to turn the heater on!!! To go from 95 in Phoenix to snow in Utah a few days later----CRAZY!!!

Glad you are out enjoying the weather.

Nice run, Rhett.

Mack, I for one, lose fitness very quickly, even if I cross train. If I miss even a few days of running, it shows and I feel like I'm starting all over again.

Dale, I hear ya. I'm the same way.

I think you ran so well because you had to borrow MY compression sleeve - i told you it was awesome....just like you are. I am SO SO SO glad you had a great run.
