Mornings. There are mornings and there are Mornings. This was the latter…or the prior, I forget which. The point is, it was morning. Early, dark, not quite as hot as to make you puke, but still hot. Rather than going to work I took the day off to hit the trails, cuz sometimes you just have to say “Fuck it, dude. I’m hitting the trails.” … Continue reading Voyeuristic Raccoons
It’s hot out there folks, like real hot. When its hot for a land going, desert loving, saliva spitting, water storing mammal like us, then you know it’s hot. So for the sake of safety lets review a few ways to beat the heat and keep pounding the trails. The booze; during the week, trade the elixir of life for some good old fashion water……HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA! … Continue reading It’s So Hot, I Could Vomit. Wait. Yup. Just did.
Not much to say here. I have been rather lazy since this weekend, and the week previous I was on vacation. So I punished myself by running about 2.25 miles in the Texas sun, averaging under 11min a mile. Never said I was fast… Going to bust out a much larger run this weekend (earlier, and partially shaded. I love trails). ⛰🐪 Continue reading I ran. During the day. Again.

I knew I didn’t have to work this morning. Barely drank so much as a beer last night. Got my family off to work and summer camp, and then went back to bed. I should have gone for a run. I did… at almost 10am, while 84 degrees out. Not proud of my 2,2 miles in 24 minutes… but it about killed me. Time to … Continue reading HEAT Training for Mountain Camel
This Mountain Camel eat more spider webs on today’s AM run then Doctor Octopus. Wish I was Doc Octopus, I could have used his extra arms to move my pudggy ass a bit faster. Instead my very human legs carried me in at a sluggish 36:45, on the standard 5k training loop. If I had super powers they would be to spit over great distances, … Continue reading Here’s Web in Your Eye.

Up at 450am….ok, 5:15, on the trails by 6, back in the truck 3 miles and 34:15 minutes later, showered and into work by 8. The rest of the day went just like that. Project. Deadline. Project. Deadline. Deadline. Project. Project. Deadline. Beer. Not that I’m complaining, this camel has a good life, just sayn’ my legs hurt.
