Sunday 0 miles.

I jogged to the mailbox this afternoon and my foot felt like I stepped on a nail. Maybe it's not a bruise...

I took the boys for a drive this morning and scouted hills for making my own version of the Manitou Springs "Incline". There's a million potential spots and few that look maybe too steep. Brandon wrote about the incline on his blog... we need one here. Maybe I can stash a cooler at the top so we don't have to haul PBR though.

Michael's worried you won't be any fun at Christmas--are you still drinking beer? Is that allowed on your new diet regimen?

I'm having a porter at the moment. I'm about .000001% sure that cavemen drank alcohol. Which is good enough for me to include it. Plus it's Christmas with my little brother.
I plan to be drunk when we go and shoot our handguns ;)

I am not sure if there is anything like the Incline exactly in Boulder-ish area ... but there are some tough tests.

Shadow Canyon is 1.1 miles long with an average grade of 26 percent, with sections up to 45%.

Egyptians definitely drank alcohol.

GZ- I mapped and also looked at a .95 mile "hill" today that starts at 7300ft and tops out at 9350 ft. So 2050 feet in less than a mile (40% grade). There may not be an established trail climb that compares to the incline yet... but there will be.
The Egyptians? That works for me!

Let's take your axe, chop down some trees, and make our own cogs there!

They had mead pretty early on, didn't they? Maybe not in the time of cavemen....
Nail in the center of the ball of the foot--hmmmm. That sounds SO familiar! I'm massaging my poor left foot as I write! Hope it's nothing serious.

Hi Lucho-I have been following your blog for awhile and am interested in inquiring in your coaching services. Is there an e-mail I can contact you at for more info.
Thanks,

Becky

Mary- The pain is in my 3rd metatarsal on the top of my foot. This points quite strongly towards a stress fracture. I'll wait and see what it does.
