It’s been a crazy week with my wife out of town since Saturday but she returned home last night so I was able to get back to running in the morning instead of the evening. I did 5 miles up 1000 feet at an easy effort then ran back down at a little faster than mp effort. It felt good starting the day with a hard run.

6 miles this morning nice and easy averaging right at 8:00.  The hot air balloon festival is this weekend here in Lake Havasu City and all the balloons are up in the air.  It's fun to see them all up in the air at the same time.

Since I hadn’t been to Blake’s new home yet, we thought it would be fun for me to come spend the weekend at his house and run the San Diego Trail Marathon together. It has been a great weekend, so fun to see him, his family, and his new stomping grounds. 

It rained all night Friday night and was still raining hard when we got up Saturday morning and drove to the race, but by the time the race started, it had stopped raining. It was very muddy though. We had determined to not race this race but instead to just run together and enjoy running together and we stayed with that the whole race. At one point Blake’s leg was tight so we walked together. Likewise when I felt a little nauseous he walked with me. It was just about doing this together. We weren’t fast, but we had fun. It was a great weekend.

Now it is time for me to get serious about running a fast marathon in April.
