Twin Brook 6

Emma and I ran together at Twin Brook tonight, it was our first trail run together since the Vermont 50. That was a long time ago.

Jim was there at the beginning and James and Maury met up with us about halfway through. There was still a thin layer of soft snow on the ground, in many places covering a layer of ice. It was a slow run but that's probably the way it should be for several reasons: knee, ice, impending Fat Ass. I'd like to be able to run all five laps of the GAC FAt Ass 50k this Saturday, but I haven't gone over 20 miles in the past 8 weeks so stepping up to 50k is probably too much. But I'll see how it goes.

time: 1:00:00
distance: 6.00 miles
pace: 10:00

weather: 29 degrees, clear

conditions: hard packed snow, ice

gear: Brooks Cascadia 3 screwed, wool socks, tights, 2x long sleeve tops, thin gloves, buff

Sorry I missed you kids. I got out of work after 7pm. Such is life. See you after Texas. Enjoy!

it would have been nice to join the TM crew Saturday and tonight but I had friends over Saturday (they were here for the conference in Boston) and I got home to late tonight to join you. Good to see Emma running again. Be careful at the FA50K - no more injuries!
