What I Love Most About Trail and/or Ultra Running

I really love many, many things about trail and ultra running. But, to be honest, I don't really enjoy the races as much as the training. I really love the feeling of leaving the house or trail head with some water and a little food and being able to be alone with my thoughts and nature for a few hours. If I had to choose a word, it would be "solitude".

I would also like to add a link to a great site for Trail and Ultra Running Resources.

Training Recovery and Taper

Wow, I finished my last long run (30 miles on Saturday) before the Hawk 50, and it really kicked my ass. I'm hobbling around and completely out of energy. I almost think I picked up a cold or flu bug. I haven't felt this worn out since the Rockin' K. I just hope I can bounce back for the Hawk in two weeks.

Here are some links for a good recovery.
