    18.18 miles this morning, 2:54:01 for a 9:34 avg pace.

    Saw a 50K race coming up in 2 weeks and am really tempted to try it. I haven't been training for one, been a lot more focused on speed lately than endurance, but most of the other 50K races around conflict with hunting season or other things so was surprised to see this one on a day where I don't have anything else planned. After breaking my collarbone in February I ended up not finishing my first 50K that I attempted this May, I trained for it and thought I was ready, but I ended up falling 7 times over the first 20 miles and I wasn't actually cleared by my Dr. to even be out there running trails to begin with so I stopped at mile 20 to try to avoid re-breaking my collarbone since I would have probably fallen even more the more tired I got.

    So I'm really thinking about signing up for this 50K in Erick, Oklahoma. Do-whacka-do race whatever that means. It is more on jeep type trails than single track technical trails so it sounds like I would have a lot less chances of falling, but there is plenty of elevation changes running through some canyons so it's supposed to be plenty tough. Weather in early September in Oklahoma could also make it tough.

    Knocking out a 50K race a little over 2 weeks before my mountain goat hunt starts should have me fully recovered and ready to go for it as well.

    If I do run it I'm going to start out slow and walk the uphills right from the start. Just need to decide if I'm going to do it or not!

    Good luck with it. I took my two girls on a hike with my pack yesterday. I had the stone glacier loaded with 50 lbs and did 4.4 miles. Pack rode pretty good. Need to get some more weight in it. But I've still got about 6 weeks.

    Just got back from a roughly 12 mile trek. Was a great trip and it was great to feel like I had legs afterwards!

    Nice run around the Capital tonight. Headed back home in the morning. I really enjoy running in the different cities that I travel in. Get a different perspective on things than when you are driving around in a vehicle. The Capital sure is pretty at night.

    I have already cut the fountain drinks out. Replace with a nalgene bottle of water. Now to do better at portion control and find a workout regiment for me.
