DOMS.  Gotta be more consistent with that trail running so it doesn't hurt every single time.

Achilles still a little sore from the graston on Wed.  Rode my bike home from and back to the car shop.  I love paying $1,300 for a car that was running just great but needs "standard maintenance."

Trail run with a fun group of ladies. Up Skunk Canyon, across the Mesa trail, down Bear Canyon.  Heard a pack of coyotes howling and barking as we ran by.

Easy run.  Achilles is doing a little better than last week. My oldest child turns 9 year old today!!  How the time flies.

Road bike ride up Flagstaff.  That climb kicks my butt every time.  Its basically straight up for an hour with the steepest part right near the top. Then it only takes 20 minutes to cruise back home.  Fun!

Nice run in Shanahan Ridge with some awesome ladies.  Some hill repeats near the beginning and then a nice shady jaunt along Mesa trail and down North fork. Got stung by a bee near the end so now my wrist is swollen.  Achilles is feeling okay though, thankfully.

Rode Ali up the hill to her friend's house in the bike trailer and got a little trail run in.  Too late in the morning for me, the temp was too hot.

Eisenhower Elementary loop.  Saw an old lady who must have been in her 80s jogging in a blinding bright florescent pink jacket.  She was smiling.

Aaron and I decided last minute to do a trail race together at Eldora Ski Resort.  It was my first race in a very long time and I'm not in "race shape" but we had a lot of fun!  Aaron earned his gloating rights beating me by 10 seconds!!  We ran together for the first few miles then he gapped me on a downhill.  I reeled him in up the last climb but didn't quite catch him. On the final downhill he put the nail in the coffin.  The lead woman was ahead of us by a minute or two, not sure.  I wasn't feeling very competitive since I'm not in great shape.  I did win a free pair of La Sportiva trail shoes for winning my age group, which was cool. Mostly I just really enjoined the beautiful scenery of mountain lake vistas throughout a thick, wooded forest. The course was a fun, technical, rolling mountain adventure.  Heard a guy take a digger behind me on one of the steep rocky downs.  Ouch.  Glad we came out un-scathed.

Summit Middle School loop. Enjoyed celebrating little K's first birthday yesterday!  Can't believe she's already one. She took some WORK to get here and some trial afterwards.

Beautiful morning run up Kohler and around Devil's Thumb/Shanahan Ridge.  Saw three blue jays, a squirrel, and two bunnies.

Another random blurb of thoughts today....

Up Bear Canyon down Shanahan Ridge North Fork.  Broke in my new Nike Wildhorse shoes.  Love 'em!  Nice and snug around the laces with just the right amount of space in the toe box, just the right soul (last) shape and only a 4mm drop with a tread that feels super grippy on the rocks.  These are rivaling my Altra Lone Peaks.  Time will tell if they are as durable.
