My running slacked off so much that I’ve lost noticeable muscle tone in my legs.  But I’m officially back in the saddle.  Ran back to back 7 milers Wednesday and Thursday followed up by back to back ten milers this weekend.  Ten and ten make twenty – pretty impressive weekend.  I’ll regain my conditioning in no time.

I did it with these guys – minus Kelly whose on vacation somewhere in the Caribbean.  Keith tore us up – the boy has been training for a marathon.  Plus Steve and Keith are running in the Wild West 24 hour, 200 mile relay in a couple of weeks.  This event consists of a 5 person team and runs non-stop from Ft. Collins to Steamboat Springs.  Steve ran it last year and will be tweeting his team’s progress from @sgwolfe #herekittykitty.  Last year’s tweets were pretty exciting.

I might run my own little mountain relay in a month – which is why I need to regain my running legs.  I entered a contest to be a trail reporter for the Gore-Tex transrockies relay from Buena Vista to Beaver Creek next month.  If selected, I’ll run the solo event which is only about 60 miles over three days.  And Gore-Tex would pay my $900 registration fee.  No doubt I’m too old to get excited for silly contests but I’m really hoping for this to come through.
