January 2011

So I made it through the first month of the year with some decent running. Limited at the first of the year with a minor injury but feeling pretty solid now. The race plans are taking shape and in less than 1 week I get to learn my fate for the Wasatch 100. January 2011 was my most productive January ever far as running goes. I feel good and even though I am not where I would like to be for Moab in a couple weeks I keep trying to remind myself that it is not the focus for the year. Moab has always been a way for me and my family to get away and help shake our "cabin fever". It is a fun race and generally run without a lot of the white stuff. February is now officially under way and the goal is to get to March with a lot more miles and at least 5 less pounds. Baby steps I say!
So here's to February.
P.S. Tomorrow my beautiful daughter Samantha turns 14! Oh crap. The boys may be able to run faster away from me but they sure as hell would out run me.

Good luck with the Wasatch Lottery Gods this weekend. Offer some generous sacrifices beforehand, and they will reward you. I think they are partial to half-eaten bananas, old water bottles, and memorable race bibs. Or maybe you can just bribe them with money.

Jon-
Noted! I may have to do some crazy ritual Friday night under the moon. Hope SC is treating you well.

The crazier, the better.

Yes, SC is good. I don't miss the snow and cold weather in Utah, but I really miss the mountains. I will be real sad in June when I can't run Logan Peak race.
