Hardrock 100

Ok so all I have to say is... If this video from the people over at Salomon about the Hardrock 100 mile does not make you feel like running trails I think you do not have a pulse. Wow is all I have to say.

As for my running there are some new things to report. Last Saturday I got in my longest run yet out on the trails of Hyland. I got in a whopping 9 miles!!! not bad I thought after a 7.5 mile run the day before. After that it has been more of the same. Runs of 4-7 miles where at times my knee hurts and at time it feels fine. I guess I just need to keep the nose to the grindstone.

Update & going back to Pittsburgh

This last week the Sonya and I took Krya and Evan back to Meadow Lands,PA which is like 35 min's or so outside of Pittsburgh. This is where Sonya lived till she was 13 and is where all of her family still lives. We go every 2 years back to see these special people. It is a small town that is very hilly with very narrow winding roads; ie: not the best place to be a runner with cars and all. That being said we love going back. I thought I would share a few pictures.

Great sunset while driving

If running does not workout I am killer at corn hole

Feeling the love!!!

As for a update on my running, well what do I say? It is nice to be able to run some, but it has also been very upsetting that my darn right knee has been such a bother and now my groin on the right side has been acting up as well. Dam right side of my body! But I guess I am happy to be running some. I have been at 30 miles per week the last 3 weeks off of 5-6 days of running. I have to just keep the faith and hope all works out. This week I am going to try and make my longest run up to 8.5 or 9 miles. Have I said yet how much I want to race even just once this year? Fight on I say, Fight on!!
