3 Non Joggers Guest Appearance

I was invited to go hang out in Russ's basement last week.  You can hear the results of that interesting experience here (episode 9):

(It's a podcast about ultra running, mas o menos.)

On the running front, I managed 86 miles this past week and I'm feeling it after a 49 mile weekend.  Of those 86 miles, 66 of them were run in the rain, and about 30 of those in a downpour.  It was a wet week here in Portland.  I think that might be the highest mileage week ever for me, with 80 being the previous high (not counting race week totals).  This week and next I'll shoot to maintain the mileage, and then start tapering down for HURT.  I'm feeling ready for my mini-vacation from running, which will come post-HURT (while laying on the beach in Maui).  It's been a good but long year of racing, and I'm looking forward to some down time to enjoy some winter snowshoeing and skiing before gearing up for Miwok and Western States in the spring.

Love it Amy! That is seriously awesome week. You are becoming a true Oregonian.....sun and dry is like a fine aged wine around here. :) It really does make you tougher but you don't need to be any tougher. And....less likely to suffer from blistered feet in an ultra. Hope to run with you during your taper!

This was an awful week here, wasn't it? I am ok with running in the rain, but Saturday was a monsoon!

Oh, we will NEVER thank you enough for your time! Most amazing interview, Amy.

And thanks for showing up to sit in a stranger's basement. That takes guts. Then again, you're running HURT, so...

Thrilled that you are on the Montrail Team! Yay!!!!

Best wishes at HURT! (Ouch!) I am crawling back from a pretty major injury, yet still have my sights on several awesome events...I hope I can get strong enough to run near you at WS this summer!

Till then, welcome to Montrail/Mtn Hardwear and wishing you great times and moments on the trails!
