Have you ever taken a day off?! ;). I can only imagine how far I would have to look back in your log to find a rest day.
Just imagine how strong you will be tomorrow after a full one-day taper!! ;)
Nope rest days don't help my performance.btw this was the weekend of western states. So cool that you ran that and I got to be part of it. Super special
Yes, whenever I think of Western States I remember us having a great time on the trail together, often cheering for ourselves and passing a lot of people. I also remember you and Matt hauling my big gear bag full of extra "just in case" items into every aid station for me, whether I needed anything or not, and always being so full of energy for me. That was a great weekend!
At a trail running film fest recently, I saw a film about Rob Krar's win a couple of years ago and was surprised how familiar each section of the trail still was.
Next week is the Calgary Stampede. I know which buckle I will wear :)
