Finishing touches

I ran with Rob and Mike up Hyndman Peak (12,000 ft) on Saturday after sleeping a couple nights at 9,300 during our school's Fall Campout. In addition, I made a couple trips over 10,500 during the week to finish off my altitude preparation for Wasatch. The last two days I've done a couple 10 mile Tempo Loops in Adam's Gulch and have felt strong. Now, it's just a couple more days of jogging in the dark before the family and I head down to SLC on Friday. I have MonkeyBoy and Lord Balls ready to pace me and I just took one more close look at Jasper's splits from last year for inspiration. At this point I've decided to try to simply run my own race and see where the chips fall. Not surprisingly, I am feeling a bit fresher this year since Western States was canceled so I don't have quite the fatigue in my legs that I've had in past years on Labor Day. That said, Wasatch is truly a beast and anything can happen on race day. Game on!

AJW,
Rip it up at Wasatch. I hope that OR run benefited you as much as it helped me. I was sore for a few days afterwards, but it was so worth it. I had darn close to zero quad soreness during the TransRockies Run.

Lord Balls is excited and ready to pace you. He's bringing the saltines so the boys can attempt the 10 cracker challenge. And, as you requested, he'll bring a good headlamp and his sense of humor.

Maybe he'll also bring his *two* WS age-group jackets so you can compare them to your *one* WS age-group jacket.

Nice running this weekend Andy. It was good to see you. Tell your family thanks for getting my gear to the finish. Way to battle. The rocks, the plunge, and the dive can be tough on a guy.
