You may have noticed a few additions to the right sidebar. I recently invited my core ultra-running friends to join me on this blog. A few of them keep their own blogs, but don't post very often. I felt like refuse2quit.com is gaining traction and would be a great venue for all of us to post in a central location. We all bring something different to the table, and while we often run and race together, we bring different backgrounds, focus, and experience to the site. So take a minute read through the bios and get to know everyone. You should start to see new posts from different people very soon. I couldn't be happier with the direction that the site is going. Stay tuned.
On a side note, last week was awesome. I took the first few days of the week off to let a sore foot heal. Somehow, without planning, I made up for it the last three days of the week, summiting three peaks and putting in about 35 miles.
Thursday I ran Lake Mountain with Scott, something that has become a weekly outing. We thought it would be super muddy, but only had to deal with it for about a mile. The rest of the route was dry and amazing.
Friday I took the day off of work and chose to run to the summit of View Benchmark from my house. It was exactly what I thought, amazing. I took a different way up from the trailhead and a different way down, both smart choices. Jeremy joined me for the trail portion of the run and it was a lot of fun to have him around.
Saturday the Wasatch Mountain Wranglers (our running crew) joined forces to run the Grandeur Peak loop. We went early in the morning to avoid the coming storm, a very smart decision consider it started snowing later in the day and hasn't quit since (not that it has really dropped much snow in the valley). We had a lot of fun though.
