I thank my parents, Desiree and the Formulaic's for getting party started along with all my other great friends that helped and came out to celebrate the bday!!!
After a great bday night I was up early and ready to run. At 6:20am I was off and running and 7 hours later, after refueling stops, bathrooms stops, and just having fun on the trail stops (actually watching the Big Horn Sheep out at Red Rock) I was done with 28 miles and still feeling good. Yes, legs were tired but all was good and could have ran longer if needed so with that my confidence in my fitness over these past fews weeks has increased. With Old Pueblo 50 just 3 weeks out all is looking great heading in that direction.
The calfs have been feeling better and my recovery has been quicker. I am excited as we get closer and will actually look to run one more long run this coming weekend and then head into a 2 week taper.
