Bob drove up and we logged a longish 20 miles. I wanted to cut the run short and opted for 20 miles and not the original 25. I felt completely flat and heavy legged. Our average pace was actually solid considering the amount of time we spent running up.
Lots of Leadville talk in regards to strategy. I think we have come to the decision to write 5 strategies on 5 cards and on race morning we each draw a card. Bob and I have different strategies that we favor and ironically on this run I ran his strategy and he ran mine. And no... Bob's strategy isn't to feel like shit. Most of the strategies involve running.
The Garmin read 4000ft of climbing but as I have found out, that is well over what the actual was. As I familiarize myself with the mountains and learn the mileage, and since the Garmin elevation data is off, and as I gravitate away from HR... the Garmin may have seen one of it's last runs with me.
And I'm finding the Craigslist kitten search quite entertaining. Here's one:
I have several Calico kittens for sale, if anyone is interested. I have several, about 45 total, and I am not real picky about the price. If these are something you love and would like to improve your collection, please give me a call @ 720-203-6xxx
First off, when I saw this add I wanted to scream 'calico kittens' too! The use of the word 'several' however is a bit understated which makes me nervous about her price which she says is not real picky. She's probably only asking for 'several' dollars each. 45 cats... really? And anyone who collects kittens is creepy.
Of course I think she is talking about ceramic kittens (which the add never states), but that's not very interesting.
