In Kentucky, it's 95 and humid. Good day to take a break from training. And then eclipse!

Run long 3:20:06 [1] 23.4 mi (8:33 / mi) +59m 8:29 / mi

I had this idea for a while, to take the Red Line as far south as it goes, and run back north. I found some friends to come with, took the train south, and we started running north.

The south side was interesting, not somewhere I spend a lot of time. Some broken glass, one CPD officer checking on a bum, and nothing much else. We had someone give us drinks at mile 10, and started going faster with a smaller group at mile 14. It was pretty warm at this point, and the next 10 miles were fast, but it got struggly, even drinking. We stopped at a Whole Foods, filled a liter of water, and I decided that I'd stop at Howard both because 23.5 seemed to be enough and because if I ran the rest it was going to be nip-and-tuck to get to the airport for my flight.

Good long run, seven weeks before Chicago. It will be nice to do this when it's cooler. Super fun run, and my strava track looks like a red line …

Went up to Milwaukee to get a tag on my t-shirt. Running around a block of the river in town (quite nice, like a mini-Chicago) and doing other stuff.

Core 10:36 [1]

And the other stuff.

Andy: "Our 'burnout' is named after a long-time member of the Boston tribe."

Well, there's not a workout named after me (yet), so I knew what was coming.

1 Sebastian = 7 minutes of burpies. 82 by the end and I was spent. Super sweaty out.

In May, I ran a sub-3 marathon a week after a long race in Harriman. This fall, it looks like I'll get to do it again.

Trail Run long 7:29:13 [1] 26.5 mi (16:57 / mi) +2140m 13:33 / mi

Trail running vacation came to an end with the Buchanan-Pawnee Loop. Near Boulder, beautiful, waterfalls, passes, all the good things.

Got a later-than-hoped-for start (sleep is good) and started a bit after 8. Lovely running across to the climb to Buchanan pass, pretty much deserted. Pass climb wasn't too bad, and the run down was great. Then up along a bunch of waterfalls, dipping my hat in the streams to cool down.

The climb was then about 3700 feet to 12500, so it was relatively slow going. Stopped to treat water at one point, too. Clouds started rolling in near the pass, and across the top some rain/hail did too. Lightning/thunder never got too close, but with no shelter, way too close for cover. Ran as best I could to treeline, then kept running to stay warm. Went from too hot to too cold, of course.

Once in the car I gave a couple people I'd passed a ride down the road, too, drank warm water (car had been warm in the sun), ate all the food. Legs feel good, in 12 days I've run 137 miles with 10408m of climb (more than Everest). 29 hours (doable) and 7000m (uhhh) to beat Sep '13. And I stand at 49957m of climb for the year. Half way!
