I wish the rain would stop. Today it rained hard the entire time on my 8 mile run. Since it was raining I thought I would try out my new Patagonia spray master pants. They worked great keeping me dry. But I got hot wearing them. I wear pants maybe once a year when running and that's at the Wasatch 100 mile trail race. It gets cold at night there.

Happy to be home running again. Not happy about the cold wet, windy weather. I wish the sun would show up for a day or two. I hope everyone is recovering well from Umstead 100 miler. I'm a little sore. But each day it will get better, and I will feel strong once again. Go out and run.
Umstead 100 mile trail race.... I had a great run. I finished in 22:43 only 4 min. slower than last year. I thought it would take me 24:30. I didn't taper at all ran 100k two weeks ago and paced 22 miles at American river 50 m the week before. This is me and my wonderful pacer Doctor Tom Smith at the finish . Thanks to Tom I finished in 22:43. I will post a report soon. Thanks to all of you who sent positive vibes.

Spending time remembering someone you love. My Mother passed away 4 years ago on 3-31-02. I saw this waterfall it reminded me of her. She was a beautiful person. Yes, I miss her most days. But I'm happy to have had many years with her. She was a big influence in my life. She is way I can run like I do. She is always with me. She is every waterfall I see, every butterfly I see and in the night she is that brightest star shining on me in a hundred mile race. Mom I love you, thank you for being such a positive force in my life.
