Sorry to hear about the muscle strain. I doubt it will keep you down for long. I was thinking about you while running in Prince William. If you are still going to run the OSS CIA run I think you will like it and probably crush the course.

Thanks, Karl!

I really, really like the idea of the OSS/CIA run. Tons of 'mental fantasy' possibilities, and good night training for me (I've not done much at night). It's kind of a tight squeeze for me after Worlds End 100k, but I'm definitely a 'want to do' at this point.

P.S. -- I had a dream about my calf last night. I 'figured it out' ... what was causing the issue, how to fix it with 'mind power' ... some kind of eastern meditation thingie. Of course when I woke up I couldn't remember anything about it. But my calf is feeling pretty good today. I think one more rest day/night and I'll be back. Fingers crossed!

Sounds intriguing! Visualization techniques...

I wonder if you would consider trying a pair of my (extra) compression thingies. I know you like to show off your manly calves, but hey - whatever works. Lemme know.

I love running at night. All the shadows are like a rorschach tests. I saw a monk kneeling by the side of the trail at Western States. It was just a root stock. Then the aid station workers actually hung up alien creatures along the trail. As if our brains were not already malfunctioning.

I'm looking forward to those late night hallucinations, KSwede. Hah! Sounds wild.

h3: sure, I'll give 'em a go. Can't hurt. I think.

Yes, anniemac: that's how many of my dreams work. Visualize myself flying / catching big fish / driving across the piling a that are all that remains of the hurricane destroyed bridge, etc.
