I ran the Mt. Spokane 50k last month, then took a few easy to rest a little. But I'm back now and gearing up for some big winter running plans.
I was planning to write a race report for Mt. Spokane (I had a great race ), but the longer I put it off the less I felt like writing it.
My big winter race is the Rocky Raccoon 100 . This is down in Huntsville, TX, about 30 minutes north of where I grew up. I ran the 50 with my dad back in 2008.
There are a couple Pullman Winter Ultras to run. I'm also heading to Texas for the holidays to run a couple marathons with my sister(s). So barring major blizzards, I'll be doing a lot of winter running in the dark the next couple months. I don't love winter in the Northwest. Sunsets at 4:30pm aren't fun.
Here's a rare daylight photo:
Still no snow on Moscow Mt., but it's supposed to hit us tonight. Not many snowless trail runs left this year.
(PS Sorry, but I've added the word verification pain-in-the-butt back to the comments...I've been bombarded with spam the past two weeks. Ugh.)
