And Sharon won again today in the shortened "middle". She is the clear winner of SOW with 4878 points, ahead of Mulder (4799) and Pletscher (4547). Congrats! BTW, She also won the World Rogaine Champs in Spain with partner Robin Spriggs a few days before the start of SOW.

6 PM

Trail running 1:07:00 [3] 7.0 mi (9:34 / mi) +90m 9:12 / mi
shoes: On Cloud grey-black

After "opa" "duty" at Packers Falls with Oliver and N, I quickly switched into gear to just get a quick run in before dinner. Kind of hot as the humidity from the last day lingered in the woods (82F), but it did start to cool of a bit. After a warm-up mile around SH, I got into the groove of it, and ventured over to the W F Farm shelter to the switch-back trails, and around and back to SH. Did a fast mile (~ 7:30) on the way back around the shelter loop. Perspiration galore! And kinda surprised that I racked up a seven. Some cool down exercises plus a rain barrel shower ushered in the well deserved feeling of being refreshed - not to mention a hearty pasta dinner afterwards assembled from leftovers and combined with all the fresh goodies from the farm.

Spruce Wood to bike trails to Thompson house field, back to shelter, W Foss Farm loop and home. I started slow and tried to relax my legs throughout. Goal was to increase the speed to the end.

6 PM

Mt Biking 27:30 [3] 5.0 mi (5:30 / mi) +35m 5:23 / mi

Around the "block" with forays into Toon Lane and Osprey Lane neighborhoods. A young deer appear to be lost on Osprey, but quickly jumped into the woods as I made myself noticable. Nice evening. Clear air. Just needed to get out a bit.

10 AM

Trail running 2:30:30 [3] 12.04 mi (12:30 / mi) +450m 11:12 / mi
shoes: On Cloudflow dark grey

It was cloudy and cooler this morning, perfect for a "mountain" run.
So I ventured to Pawtuckaway boat launch, from where I ran up Shaws to the Boulder field, over N mountain, then back the shortcut to dirt road towards S mountain, but then down towards round pond and back via Shaws.

I only had 20 oz of water/juice mix, nothing else like electrolytes or food. I did not expect this to take me so long, also it got warmer and the sun came out during the last hour. That wore me down a bit. But thanks to Chi running, my legs were not overused, so no muscle cramps. It really works! I was able to run all but the very steepest climbs. Having just returned from the high CO altitudes also helped not getting overly exhausted.

An ankle twister at mile 2, and bit of groin issues on the steep downs. Otherwise a pleasant run. Quite a few hikers out, some with dog(s); also rock climbers - Kevin G. from UNH was hanging in the lower part of the "wall" but did not mind being distracted by a quick "hello".
