AM: no race report. posted a big fat DNS..........

PM: retry. ran my usual 7.5 sugarhouse loop and felt really good. weather was nice, although quite windy. as i was running along 1300 E. there was a kid skateboarding down the sidewalk on the opposite side. we were dead even for awhile, so i decided i wanted to beat him to the next light at 1700S. i pulled ahead and held my ground for about 300M, then he "surged", caught up and passed me. darn. i slowed a bit but caught back up to him at the red light. we both got going again and he pulled ahead. then he did a "trick" of sorts, which caused him to slow down and stop. i looked over at him and he smiled. he knew what i was up to. i guess he decided he wanted to race my style. so he picked up his skateboard and took off running. punk. so i kicked it in gear, passed him and went a little ways before i looked back and saw he had given up. tight jeans and huge skate shoes probably aren't the best clothes for racing. it was fun and it definetely spiced up my run a bit. silly kid. my last 3 miles were just under 6:30 pace (downhill) and i averaged 8:00 pace for the entire run (lots of uphill). i was at 58:38 minutes at 900 S and i wanted this run to be under an hour, so i sprinted the last 400M home and made it...59:59. HA.

note: hit 80 miles this week. first time in my entire life.

Way to "Old Spice" that kid! ;)

Sorry about the race :(

From allie on Sat, Mar 28, 2009 at 19:49:38 from

james - i am not sure what happened, exactly. i just felt really REALLY crappy this morning. i have been excited about this race for awhile. then i got up there this morning and i felt like death. the freezing wind didn't help much and i was way under-dressed. just felt really horrible. crash and burn. pathetic. felt much better this afternoon and was able to semi-redeem myself from a ridiculous morning. it's the first DNS/DNF of my life. i just didn't want to push anything right now with SLC only 3 weeks away.

PS - it was fun reading your race report. you ran very well. SUCH a competitive field!

From james on Sat, Mar 28, 2009 at 20:29:52 from

That's totally understandable in the highest mileage week of your life. You've got to pick your battles. Are you on for the half next weekend? I may need a ride from you:)

From Bec on Sat, Mar 28, 2009 at 20:51:08 from

Nice, nice miles, you are INCREDIBLE! Way to go. I would love to see the race between you and the punk kid. Thanks for the good laugh.

Congrats on the milestone, and a great week.

Glad you listened to your body. Sorry it occured on the wrong day for you. listened. Good for getting out there later.... maybe you should consider ultramarathons with your mileage : ))) Happy sleeping!!!

I learned a lot from your blog, like how to have fun even on a bad day. Congratulations on your high mileage, especially considering the nasty weather we've had. It will all pay off for you this season!
