I've Been a Baaaaad Blogger

It has been way too long since I've posted here. I just haven't had the blogging mojo lately. That, and a few other things - I've been training quite a bit, and work has taken up a bit more of my "home" time too.

My running and training has been going pretty well this year. I ran Way Too Cool last month, and will post a report on that soon. My wife also ran it - it was her first ultra and she did great. I'm hoping she will write up her own report and let me post that here too! I've also been working out fairly regularly with the Santa Cruz Track Club. They are a good group of people and the workouts have helped me get some variety in my training.

I'm currently training for the Quicksilver 50 mile race, which is coming up on May 10th. I grew up in that area, and used to hike all over that park with friends as a kid. This will be my first 50 miler, and I can't wait. I will be doing a good, long training run out on the course this weekend so I can get to know it better. I feel having better course knowledge will greatly help in planning a good race day strategy.

There are some other fun things I've been up to, but I'll save those for later posts. Mostly, I just wanted anyone who comes by here to know that I'm still around, and I WILL be posting more often. I promise! :-)

Glad to see you're back :) And congrats to you and your wife on Way too Cool! Look forward to those reports.

How exciting that you've signed up for your first 50!

Hi Addy,

Thanks for the "welcome back!" I'm hoping to get the Cool report up soon, and a few other write ups of some other fun training runs too.

I can't wait for my first 50 miler. It's coming up soon! Woohoo!!!

I hope your leg is feeling better so you can get back to a regular running schedule. It's no fun having to take a forced break due to injury.
