Missing in Action

| No Comments

Sorry I haven't posted lately, I have a ton of excuses, but I'll spare you.

I've been running regularly over the last couple months, but only about half of the weekly mileage compared to the last 3-4 years. Most of my cross-training has also fallen to the wayside, another victim of a very busy year at work and at home. Luckily, I have kept my weight in check, but it hasn't been easy.

Despite my lack of training, I still managed to complete a couple races: A marathon on June 5th, which I finished in 4:22:17 and the annual 50-Mile race in our area in 9:59:58. The latter event really surprised me, I decided to run it at the last minute and finished much faster than I imagined I would. I will try to get write a couple brief race reports and get them posted.

In two weeks I plan on running another marathon, a hilly forest marathon in the Black Forest. Since I haven't really trained for it I will run it "just for fun". Nothing like a relaxed marathon to easy the stresses of life.

While I'm writing a big congratulations to the race director of my 100 mile run last year, Wolfgang Hoefle, who just completed the Hardrock 100 in colorado! He just made it under the 48 hour cutoff, in 47:30!
