BACK AT IT.........

I have been slacking the last few weeks and have ran a total of 30 miles or so. I think it is good that I took the time off. I have been going at since last fall without any kind of a break. This week the slow rebuilding process will be starting. Every run will be at an easy to moderate pace, it will be all about base building from here on out. I am not saying that I will not be running hills just that I will not be going full bore up them. I did sign up for my next major race this week, The Red Hot 50K in Moab, here is the Link:

Also this past weekend I reclimbed Longs Peak again. This a 16 mile round trip hike that can be very challaging this time of year. The wind beat the crap out of us. In Aug I did this climb in 7 hours and 50 mins, last week it took us 13 hours. Snow and ice really slow you down. Anyway below are some pictures of the climb and KirkT should be posting a trip report on in the next couple of days.

Here is the link to Kirk's trip report:
