Bonk-A-Bomb, Bomb, Bomb

Today - my longest run since SOB - 20 miles. I did every stupid thing you could do. Bad nutrition management, too many miles in brand new shoes, no Body Glide for under the arms (ouch), not enough fluid intake toward the first part of the run, kept going when I knew I should've stopped - - too many miles in brand new shoes. Stupidity in its grandest form. But hey, we all do it at one time or another, right?

On the upside, we ran Headlands for the first time in a long time. And funny, the first time up the switchbacks, it felt tough, but Karen and I agreed that the second time up seemed easier. I told her it was the delirium.

So next up, Big Sur Trail Marathon, September 26. It doesn't look to bad with regard to elevation, so I'm hoping I do well. Keeping fingers crossed.

Oho, how I've done it. And will continue to do it, and spank myself every time it happens.

If you're gonna spank yourself, do I get to help . . . or at least watch??

There is a small fee, but yes, viewers are welcome.
