Promiseland 50k++ April, 2021

Went for a five mile walk down the greenway yesterday. Had to use Fall Risk and Rogue as handrails. When I stepped down off of sidewalks. Or embankments. Because my body was in full revolt. After spending the entirety of Saturday running. Up and down mountains. And just to add insult to actual injury. I … Continue reading Promiseland 50k++ April, 2021

Bastardized Blue Ridge Virtual Marathon

And watched Zealand’s race briefing videos. I’d even reviewed the course. Not, like, reviewed the course. Not, like, a map or … Continue reading Terrapin Mountain 50k

I was supposed to be helping out judging Forensics yesterday. The dramatic readings and poetry kind. Not the dead bodies and blood spatter kind. But then Janky Left Pinky Toe said it was cancelled. Cancelled? But if my volunteer commitments are cancelled...my people are gonna make me run 50 miles in the ice and snow. … Continue reading Carvins Cove to McAfee

Another .1 Christmas

Like, screaming “get your shit together moron!” at the tv kind of angry. I got sucked into the rabbit hole that is Grey’s Anatomy at the … Continue reading Another .1 Christmas

Patterson Mountain Mileage Vortex

First day of break. So obviously my alarm was set for 4:30am. We had a 20 mile run on tap. At a spot I’ve never been before. I don’t think. It’s actually hard to tell. Anyway. 20 miles. At a new spot. So that A League and Dude With The Charming And Disarming Smile could … Continue reading Patterson Mountain Mileage Vortex
