I had an awesome training run last weekend, one of the final prep weekends before the Bighorn 100. Saturday was a 39 mile run around Capitol Forest in Olympia - climbing everything and anything that went up. The run had about 7,500 feet of gain - so nothing too horrible but definitely a good training run in the forest. Josh joined me and we had fun running both Capitol Peak and Larch Mountain several times. I felt awesome and easily could have run plenty more. A good sign for Bighorn!
The training weekend continued with leading a pace team for the Capital City Marathon in Olympia. I helped organize the pace teams and led the 4:45 group for the entire race. I felt very strong and the legs weren't tired from the long run. Another good sign!
