Play Day!

Not much of a blogger these days. Way too much going on. After Wisconsin, I spent the weekend in Kalispell catching up with old friends. I did get in some running time, and there are photos somewhere...

Today, I ventured out for a long hike/run in hope of warm weather. Before my January injury, I had bought a new 70 oz. Camelbak bladder to replace the Nathan bladders that ALWAYS leaked. I just followed the 12k course of Don't Fence Me In for about 6 miles. My ankle did hurt today, and I'm wondering if it isn't my shoes. Although the Cascadia's feel like slippers, they might not have enough stability for me. It was a perfect trail running day, cool with little wind, and very few people.

Finally, running again! Notice no leaking from the pack.

End of Rodney Ridge - legs were tired and it was rocky, so I slowed down. Didn't want to roll the ankle yet again.

Congrats Danni on finishing Diablo 50!
