Doing it for the gram (crackers). The ones with a hle in the middle. Knocked out three miles this morning with these sandbaggers, hopefully the discomfort is as easily forgotten as remembering to flush the toilet. The afterglow from their time on the trails should last a little longer.
All those worn out shoes for a moment like this.
Happy Mothers Day to the ones that never miss a beat! @dlk6811
I dont know where the weekend, I mean weeks went.
What a month. @chuckanut50k, @thespeedproject, @daybreakrunning Gorge Waterfalls 50k. I think it was all about running, maybe just chasing a dream. My son always asks, what place were you, dad?

A healthy amount of mindful solitude goes a long way, apparently to where cameras cant capture speed. 9 miles and 4K of vert is just about the perfect race distance to get that trashed feeling to last all weekend. I honestly never thought I would count uphill steps again but it was all I could do...
Summer, you coming back, right?
Peace on Earth. Peace out 2023.
