This morning I was able to get in my first run in a while.  I did my 12 mile trail run that utilizes the 8 mile Vin Gormley Trail.  I kept it slowish and tried to have fun.  A few "friendly" dogs and trail runners out there today.  Are St. Bernards and black lab/pit bull mixes really friendly?  The pit lab was awfully excited about grabbing my water bottle out of my hand.  At least it gave me a bit of an adrenaline rush to help finish the hilly ending.  My body felt pretty tired after about eight miles and my overall time was slow, but I'm happy that I could run twelve trail miles not in great shape.  My plan is for longer runs and the occasional speed workout to get prepared for the Pisgah 23K. 


  1. Not in great shape?? You haven't lost anything!!

  2. Pisgah race-sweet. Let's try and get Bentley up here for that. He can stay at my house! I hope you read this and take me up on it.

  3. Need details for the Pisgah debacle...have to work on weekends (at least until October) so I would need to try and figure something out...obviously, the 50k would be out of the question.

    Pass along the info. I appreciate the hospitality, Glenn.
