Where do you go for “silence”, and more thoughts from my head.

Yoga, headphones with music to drown out the other noise? Dark bedroom? I like where this guy goes.



I will be running the Xterra Black Canyon half marathon on Sunday.  I should get some silence there.  I hear that the main stream crossing was mid thigh earlier this week.  That could get interesting, but I am guessing it has subsided a good deal since then.


Have you wondered about the effect (or is it affect) of caffeine on endurance sports?  Apparently you don’t need to worry about becoming dehydrated, unless you drink a lot of it daily. Click here to read more.


I started using Spirulina this week to see how it effects (or is it affects) my endurance activities.  Its very early in, but initial thoughts are that this stuff works.



360 photos from Sedona run

I really like the 360 app for the iPhone, it takes some sweet photos.  Here are some links to a few I took recently.

Photo #2

I had a third, but it apparently didnt upload or save to my phone.  Well, in its place are more I have taken at other places.

Snowbowl, Flagstaff AZ  Slushbowl, I was moving too fast and got some blurs.

Another Sedona that is wobbly.


I havent made up my mind if I am going to run the Xterra Black Canyon Sunday.  I ran 7 miles today and my legs were dead, and I was just not feeling it at all.  I don’t really want to go all the way up there for a 9K, but just might if I don’t get it done for the half marathon.  I ran a decent 9 in Sedona and did a good 16 miles 3 weeks ago, but with the elevation gains and 2 stream crossings, I might just be a bit out of my required fitness level.  We will see.  Maybe a last second online registration tonight.
