Run long 1:31:00 [3] 9.0 mi (10:07 / mi)
shoes: Lop

Took off to Tyler in the afternoon, in the manner of one without a job. Running in the afternoon is something I could get used to, but it might make me soft, so not so much of that.

Intended to do 1 hour to 1:20, but ended up going longer (perhaps just because of the fact that the pace slowed after 50 minutes or so, especially as the snow got crustier.)

Went to the fox den, but no evidence of foxes there. There were many tracks elsewhere. Saw a big hawk-like thing, but we have many more colorful birds at home.

It would have been great conditions for skiing (were I to do such a thing) and indeed, one intrepid soul was gliding classic style through Tyler.

For my part, I ran on trails, fields, or forest. It was all the same: "Very Nice!!" Perhaps even calling for: "High Five!!"

Well, I digress. Those evaluations are best done by my colleagues with more hair and fewer inhibitions.


While the weather outside was frightful, I felt quite delightful.

And who wouldn't? With my performance apparel from Axis Gear* and lightweight racing shoes from Berman's Orienteering Supply*, I was ready for anything.

And then when I got home, I made myself a tall glass of oh-so-refreshing Gookinaid Hydralyte* electrolyte replacement drink in the yummy orange flavor. I was rejeuvenated in no time!

* Yes indeedy, these are all official sponsors of the DVOA Jukola 2007 Team. These fine firms know a winner! (You might call this a commercial endorsement. No kidding! DVOA Jukola 2007 is unabashedly commercial, and undeniably good.)


Had one of these later.

Not a sponsor, yet, but I suppose there are higher priorities.
