Week of Sept 27th-Oct 3rd

Monday: 5mi / 33min in Pisgah w/Griffin

Tuesday 14mi* / 1:28 in Pisgah w/Griffin and Jimmy. Great run, felt fast and worked the climbs. Very muggy but the rain showers kept me cool. Wore my new Mudrock 290's. They are awesome. Saw a porcupine.

Wednesday: 1mi / 8min. w/Health class. Had an xc meet. Josh won again. Lifted upper body.

Thursday: 12mi / 1:19 in Pisgah w/Griffin. Decent run, muggy and raining. Saw a deer.

Friday: 10mi / 68min in Pisgah w/Fyffe, Griffin, and Bailey. Nice romp in the rain.

Saturday: 13mi* / 1:25 Ran the Chesterfield 5K w/Josh, then zipped over to the KSC Invite and registered with 20 minutes to spare. Ran 27:00 finishing in 14th. Felt good, went out slow and kept moving up through the pack. I had a really good kick to hold off a KSC runner. Picture perfect fall weather.

Sunday: 13mi* / 1:25 - Ran the Pinnacle Challenge with Fyffe, Miller, and Ferenc. We got 1st place as a team in 2:00:17. I ran 22:07 on the 3.5mi trail run. It was a blast.

Total: 68mi - Great week. Had an awesome weekend with two great races. I'm pleased with Tuesday's run as well. Starting to feel very good and the 50K is definitely behind me and out of my legs. Looking forward to another good week of running. I can't wait to run at Monroe, I love that course!


  1. A porcupine. Now that'd be a new take on getting spiked during a run.

  2. Ha Ha, true! I was more worried about the dogs getting spiked.

  3. Dude, just watched a video of you at Pinnacle CHallenge!! Was this at Newport HS track?!?! Sure looks like it (w/ the big hill)...I do speed work here every summer while on vacation in NH!!! Awesome!!!

  4. Sure was! If you want to try something fun go run up the ski jump steps.
