Coyote Ridge Trail Run

Hopped in the truck @ 3:00 am with Slowrunner77 & Kirk F and cruised to Marin for the Coyote Ridge Trail Races.  I flat out hate forgetting my camera because I found it one of the most scenic races ever.  I signed up for the 10 miler and looked at the course profile and saw a tough day at the office ahead.  I figured the course might be muddy and the course over achieved.  How I managed to stay upright highlighted the day.  The course ran long so the duration helped.  Kirk won the 10 miler & Slowrunner77 took 3rd in the 7 miler.

Walk, Woof or Hoof It Fun Run 12k

Cruised over to Loomis, CA with Slowrunner77 for a race.  We ran a long 12k over two loops.  I found the course pretty tough but held together to finish.  Man a 9:00 pace jacked me up!

Run Training

Jog out in Verdi with Slowrunner77.  We made sure we went during miserable weather and I felt yesterday's race.

Cruised over to San Francisco with Slowrunner77 for a race along the waterfront.  He wanted to race and when I saw the chance to run on a flat course at sea level, I jumped.  The DSE club put the race on and I felt envious seeing a club that puts on so many races.  The race went 2 miles out & back.  Slowrunner77 won in 22:42.  I felt a good run coming on and when I saw him on the return in under 14 minutes I felt pumped.  I hit the turnaround in 16:35 and realized sub-36 would happen so I started to push and 20 minutes in I started hurting and realized sub-35 would happen then in the final mile, since I was already dead, I pushed under 34 for a 33:24 finish.  I lost 13 seconds in the second half but still felt pretty happy about the run.  Later we hit up the City Beer Store for some celabratory adult beverages.

Not a bad day
