Afton

It is still raining outside! 3 days of constant rain; it could get to a person, you know? I don't know how the residents of WA put up with this so many days in a row, the suicide rate has to be higher in that part of the country.

I'm feeling like I've been living in a box with the flaps closed in on me. I'm not sure what the deal is. Maybe the high of McNaughton has passed..I haven't been out running hard ..the rain..all of it I guess.

Today was a lot of fun. I headed out to Afton State Park to run with 10 or so friends in the rain. I thought some may opt out, because of the rain, but that didn't happen. Most of us ran about 25K or so. The trails are really in good condtion, there were only a few muddy spots and a few wipeouts.

After we ran we hung out in the visitor center for a pot luck of sorts. Fruit, sandwiches, sweets, veggies and great conversation. Lots of talk of upcoming races.

Steve and Tyler had a father-son pool tournament today. They took second place! Not to bad for Tyler's first one.

I'm looking forward to running some 800's next week. I haven't been to the track since fall!

How'd the potion work for you?

The potion worked well. So well, that I put some on after my bath, covered with a sock and went to bed. It made my skin all nice and soft. I'll use it for my next race..Superior 50K on May 20.
