Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, LoBo Trail, secintel, Trailfest, Zion
I was set to run ten this morning but hit this closure at Neva Road on the LoBo Trail. Sure, I could have continued along the detour, instead I took it as a sign to turn around early under a cloudless sun. I just haven’t been running much lately, other than for the weekends. I can feel my conditioning beginning to trend slovenly. I settled for eight today. Maybe strategic, knowing I have to run Magnolia at altitude with Team Prospect tomorrow.
I blame work for not letting me run more. Work is eating into my blogging and second novel too. I don’t know what writer’s block even is but writing does take time, and I don’t have much of that lately. Still, the new job is awesome so I don’t mind.
Nothing better than being motivated at work. I met my dev/ops team in Herndon this last week. They remind me of my SecIntel team over ten years ago with IBM, before the ISS acquisition. Both teams count their growth based on the number of PhDs they have on their data science teams. That approach gives me confidence. Still, I have a massive running event coming up in October, the Trailfest with 44 miles over three days through Bryce Canyon, Zion and the Grand Canyon. I need to pick up the pace of my training.
