I arrived a little early to the Tuesday Night Run this week to get in about 2.75 miles before everyone else showed up. Now that I'm finally focusing on and training for an ultra this fall (Stone Cat 50 miler) I want to step up my weekly mileage. I had hoped to get there early enough to run the whole Craig Cup 5k course but didn't give myself enough time. Which I guess means I was running too slow.

We had a good sized group tonight and I think for the first time ever had more women than men! Well, maybe it's not the first time, but it's still nice that we're getting some new people coming along.

I rediscovered an old pair of Inov-8's before heading out for the run, they were muddy but still in pretty good shape so I cleaned them up, and then proceeded to re-mud them. Between my early run, the regular run and the barefoot afterwards I ended up with a little over 9.5 miles, hopefully next week I'll get it up to 10.

time: 1:22:23
distance: 9.56 miles
pace: 8:37

gear: Inov-8 Flyroc 310, Wright Socks, shorts, t-shirt, hat

You can thank Erin for bringing all the new women in to run the TNRs.

I'll be back running in a couple weeks. Can't wait to hit the trails again.
