    Marin County Turkey Trot 5K. Only ran it because my granddaughter Gaby was running in the 1 mile kids run. I was totally not into this race and it was obvious that I should still be resting still. My average HR was only 156 which is evidence enough that I am still wore out from the 50 miler 5 days ago. If I were fresh my HR average would be in the mid 170s for this distance.

    North Face San Francisco Endurance Challenge 50 miler. My first 50 miler, felt pretty good considering, but of course last 10-15 miles were tough. Fell twice and cut myself both times. A 60 year old bleeds a lot easier so it was a hassle constantly wiping off the blood with paper towels on a crowded downhill technical trail. Was hoping for 10:30, but I got close. My watch measured over 51 miler and I think it's right. Only ate M&Ms on the course, but I was very full at the start and my bladder was full of low calorie Gatorade. Now I got to eat some real food, lol. As for the watch, the SSU gave me no trouble whatsoever, no HR dropouts thank goodness. I had 25% battery left at the end. The Stryd battery ran out though toward the end. I estimated my heart could handle 145 bpm on average at that distance and I was close. I think I paced myself well.

    Santa Rosa Marathon. Felt very good most of the race but (as expected) the last 5 miles was very tough. Slight uphill and the temps climbed into the mid 70's. But still I went fast enough the first 15 miles to get another PR and to have an extra cushion for qualifying for Boston (-5:28). Finished fifth (out of 33) in my age group.

      Santa Rosa Marathon. Decided to run it anyway with a sore knee. Fortunately it loosened up after a couple of miles. Affected my time by maybe 20 minutes or so.

      Napa Valley Marathon. First timer, was hoping for a sub 3:50. Things went bad in 2nd half, the sore hips made it painful. Should've worn my regular shoes instead the lighter racing shoes. Probably started too fast too. Did quite a bit of walking from miles 17 to 23, but sucked it up and finished strong. Learned a lot and hope to do much better in my next one, which is the Santa Rosa on 8/31.
