Lair O' The Bear Trail Run...
Over 1700 feet of Ascent.

Ran this with Ramone... Although leashes are required at the Lair, the Dime's are outlaws, and today was no exception. We were free doggin' it and probably pissing off the mtn bikers! Ramone got pretty tired and did his best to keep up. He's no quitter, that's for sure.

As far as the run is concerned... I almost didn't run today. I'm feeling a little week and I may be feeling the slight beginnings of a bug of some sort. I just felt really lethargic. So I went out easy... kept my HR pretty low for this course and never really felt like I pushed that hard. I was surprised by my time... easily my fastest time on this trail all year... About 5 minutes faster than the last time I ran it back in July. Could have been a PB, but I'd have to go look at some of my old logs... I know I have had some pretty quick times out there in the past.

So yeah, my running is starting to come around... :)

I find a cool shipwreck break to surf... there is what appears to be an ex-pat trailer park surf community set up there... I camp here for 3 days and surf... I don't see anyone until on the 3rd day. Some people I knew from Aspen (where I was living at the time) were heading north on a surf trip... I was heading south. Crazy small world. I never figured out what this sign meant!

Wash Park... took a while to get going today... I'm nursing a wicked hangover... I had such a mellow weekend; stayed in Friday and Saturday nights and then, POW! Dick Dime gets his drink on... Anyway, the run was pretty darn good considering my stomach and my head were not 100%.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket So, my little heart-breaker, LiliaMonster (devotchkatata) is running the Portland Marathon today... It will be her first marathon without me there (we did 10 together)... I wonder if that has occurred to her. Anyhoo, even though she hasn't blogged on BT since we broke up, I know she still lurks. Give her an inspire and wish her well today, the little Russian Rocket is going for a sub 3:10... Personally, I think she is under trained, but at NY last year she trained on 3 days a week and ran a 3:13 so I shouldn't doubt her. Not being there with her today is feels very strange to me.

I surprised myself by getting up early and meeting Tyra, Amy, Scott, Kenny and Rich for a run at Higline at midnight. Well, OK, actually it was 5:15 but it was dark! Although I was on time by my standards, it is not OK with this crew, they were already off and running by the time I got there. I caught up with everyone by mile 3 and chitchatted a bit before picking it up just a bit.

Its hard to believe that two weeks ago I covered this distance in 2:14. There was no way I could have ran that fast today. I was tired from the get go.

It feels good to get a 20 miler in before 8 AM.

Easy run... thought about existential things, mostly... my future, what I'm doing... why I run... where in the hell do I think I'm running to or running from... deep shit, man.

Dentist today... I may go trail running if I can get myself out of the house!!! I miss Lilia a little less. OH, this guy is so hot... that FACE! Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Nobody wants to go to the movies with me tonight... F*ck em' - I'm doing this mission solo.
