Bruiser Tester

Met up with a bunch of TM's this morning to hit the Bruiser and such. Started with Nathan, Blaine, Jamie and Ian but ran most of the course with the later three. I knew I'd have a hard time today and it began this morning with my choice of shoes. I wanted to wear the Mudclaw's but they were drenched still, tried on the 212's but they didn't feel right and I picked up the 280's but they seemed archaic. So I stuck with my favorites, the Baregrips. I was quite dehydrated and a bit weak in the stomach to start, in part from a few too many margaritas, and my first surf session in 8 months. I decided to err on the side of caution and bring 2 liters with me and make it pay.

The first bunch of miles ticked by nicely enough and the humidity wasn't too bad. However later in the day when I thought we'd done an easy 7 or 8 the crew was stating we'd only bagged 4 to 5. Yeah. I commented at one point how much I love the O trail, as most people don't but by the time we got to it today I wasn't amused with it's switchback, up and down tom-foolery.

A good run though and quite what I was expecting after having an awesome Friday with friends in the ocean and enjoying the summer. I'm thinking I may be still feeling a bit from the previous weekends efforts as well so I'm not thinking too much about the sluggish day.

Given 70 tough miles just two weeks ago and an ass kicking race last weekend, I would hope you would be a bit worn down! Still looked strong out there.
