If you're in the market for a front wheel drive VW Tiguan in November don't purchase it in Houston. We took the "long-cut" yesterday on the Last Dollar National Forest Rd. It was unbelievably beautiful, but the car took "One Helluva Beating" as they say in Norway.

Very easy exploring Illium. Went down the lines towards the Coal Shutes at Vance Junction. Lovely little run for an easy shakeout. My old coach, Mick Garrett, would be all over the industrial archeology.

WTF!!!! How cold was it this morning? No parking in Telluride so biked in. My hands were colder than my wife's undies. Even now my nail beds are aching. Ridiculous.

Race....Blisters and Brews 5K. Achieved what I wanted. That was get under 20 mins. Winner ran under 17mins. I was worried how I'd deal with the altitude, so I took the climb easy then reeled in about 5 people ahead. Nice little race this.

Warm and comfy ride back.

Just seen the relay results. 13-15-14-15 mistake counts as a mispunch. That's even more annoying than making the mistake. What a weekend. It just keeps on giving.

LSD on the Valley Floor. Managed to stay off the mountains this week. Legs feel better for it. What a day. The weather is unbelievable. Like these 0 Celsius mornings.

(rest day)

This was planned, but wanted to shuffle the long run over to today. Work on the floor took over though. Got stung by another yellow jacket today. That's 5 in 5 days. The last one before that was in 1976. What is going on? Open House was strange. Both my bairns are liked by their teachers. The world's gone mad.

Trying not to dwell on the weekend, but having looked at Routegadget the Long was pretty cool. I didn't see the route to the North at all from 6-7. Really interesting routes all over the course. On Start to 1 some were way North. Again, didn't see that coming. Pity it didn't pan out a different way.

Running 41:35 [3] 7.74 km (5:22 / km) +29m 5:17 / km

Easy on Valley Floor. Eadie off school spewing this morning. Then managed to soil our lovely brand new white sheets this afternoon. Poor kid, she better not give it me or she'll be feeling even worse.
3 PM

Running 34:32 [3] 6.5 km (5:19 / km) +22m 5:13 / km

More easy stuff, after clean up, on the Valley Floor.

Very easy from Society Turn, Lawson Hill, Meadows, Jurassic Loop, Boomerang, Valley Floor and back. Calf is very sore/tight. Looking forward to a few LSD runs these next months with no real focus until next year sometime.
