Trail Run - Long / Easy (21st Annual Moonlight Run) 45:00 [3] 6.0 km (7:30 / km) +200m 6:26 / km
shoes: Kumasi GTX

Perfect night for the moonlight - mid teens, perfectly clear skies under a nearly full moon and a bunch of this white stuff on the ground to make it a rather magical experience.

Since half the running time was after midnight, I'm calling this a Sunday run. 9 folks showed - 3 walkers and 6 runners - 5 of us started the regular loop (Dave S. arrived a minute or so too late and tried to catch us be didn't find us until after Ken & I were coming down) Took off at a mellow pace, partway up Woodchuck Ken F. picked up the pace a little - knowing that he didn't really know the course that well, I pushed and stayed with him. Last we saw of the others until the end. Ken and I traded the lead and actually were running a pretty respectable pace given the uneven & frequently slippery terrain. I think we problaby gained the firetower at about 30 minutes or so - but neither of us was wearing a watch. Hung out for a bit, then began a leisurely jog back to the parking lot for cocoa and brownies.

Trail Run - Long / Easy (Soapstone) 15:00 [3] 1.5 km (10:00 / km)
shoes: Adidas Response Trail XI

Up to the forest with 4 inches of fresh snow. Got cold standing around and in the end, no other runners showed - a few walkers. So took off to do the sampler solo, but after about 7-8 minutes my breathing was hard (mild asthma) and my whole body just felt achy (its been feeling achy for a few days, but I attributed it to not exercising). No willpower to continue so I turned around and headed back down the hill. Perhaps if there had been some company I would have pushed on and things might have improved but not today.

Will probably still head back up this evening for the 21st annual Moonlight run - 11:30pm, haven't missed it for a number of years now (6?).

Over the past couple of years a number of people I've known (family, friends, colleagues) have been diagnosed with Cancer. Some have won the battle, some have lost and others continue to fight it.

This year I'm going to ride the Pan Mass Challenge - a fund raising bike ride. What sets this ride apart from other fund raisers is the fact that it is the largest athletic charity event in existence - more than 26 million raised last year - and also one of the most efficient with 99% of funds going to the charity - in this case the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

I've committed to the ride and fund raising for this years 192 mile ride to Provincetown. If your life and the lives of those around you has been affected by cancer, won't you please consider a supporting my ride with an e-Gift to the Dana Farber Institute? Online gift giving is quick and easy and allows the greatest amount of money to flow through to the charity. My rider ID# is CM0205.

On behalf of all those affected by Cancer, I thank you for your support...

Bike - Slipstream (Cervens - RT30) 30:00 [3] 10.75 km (2:47 / km) +160m 2:36 / km
weight:169lbs shoes: Slipstream

Another after work ride - different route. Dirt road was fine, except the put down a lot of new, loose gravel which was annoying so I opted for a different road route home. Definitely using some different muscles but the overall effort going up some familiar hills didn't seem much different than the C-dale, though I'm sure I was moving slower.


January - pretty pathetic month with about 12 hours. But that's to be expected. My biggest activity was easy running w/ Jackson at around 10 miles - but that's certainly not a bad thing.

February will likely be more of the same hit or miss but I'd like to try to get out more often. Plan to resume commuting by bike on March 1st which will also kick off official training for PMC. Probably won't get much regular orienteering in this spring, but will try to get as many sprints in as schedule allows. Also get the Crandalls map done for a meet in early June.

Muscles, leg in particular, are quite fatigued this AM. Not really sore, though they did get well punctured by brambles yesterday, but just totally drained. I guess that's what happens when you try to run 3 sprints on a base of zilch.... I guess I should start running some....
