Friday 20 miles + a run with Mzungo Uli.






am) 6.5 miles with Uli from blog Mzungo. Very enjoyable jog with a fellow blogger. We talked more about old Ironman friends and our favorite bikes than running. It was fun to have company on one of my favorite run routes.

Noon) 13.5 miles (gotta get an even number... it's all about the numbers). Average HR 149. Average pace 6:59. I ran this in the foothills below my house at ~7000 ft on a rolling course. The last 2 miles was uphill with a build to a hard effort. Maxed out at HR 175 for the last few hundred meters.

Cheers to you too! I had a lot of fun, I don't get many visitors up here.
Quote of the day: Uli- "I don't like that!"...
Second quote of the day from the dog owner:"I know."
Hilarious.
Thanks again!

Thinking about: we should have just beaten up that guy and taken the dog with us. I mean, it's 25+ years I've been in a fight. It's about time again.

Bloody 14+hr Ironman "suck your wheel" Florida AGer. Likely from NYC.

Ya, I was kind of pissed. You know I'll be up running that same road next week. Any requests on what to say to the guy? He wasn't even friendly after I asked him about Ironman. I think you are probably spot on about him!
It was a cool dog though.

Markus- When are you coming for a visit? You should come out and stay for a high altitude camp. And what's in Nairobi on the 27th?
Cheers!
