4 hilly trail miles at a place I haven’t run for at least a year. I did a three mile loop on the trails behind me in the pic, as well as a mile out and back north from the trailhead. Temps in the low 70s.

Sometimes it’s good to push through it and sometimes it’s good to push the eject button. Everyone has those days / weeks.

As a silent lurker on this thread for a while, and as someone whose primary form of fitness over the last decade has been lifting as opposed to running/biking, I just have to pipe in and say thank you to you guys for your commitment and inspirational dedication to your routines. It's energizing to pop in every morning and see guys - especially older guys - putting in the work.

Going to start logging deliberate miles this F/W.

12.8 miles this morning at 8:33/mile pace. As of this morning, I've passed my 2,020 mile goal for the year.

The highlight of this morning's run was running past a house a few blocks from mine and seeing some seemingly nice chairs at the curb for garbage day. I slowed down to check them out and they were some pretty sturdy 1950s side chairs - something I've been wanting to find for our dining room!

I wasn't even a mile into my run so I considered turning around to get my Jeep and bring them home but I figured my wife wouldn't be happy so I decided that if they were still there on the home stretch of the run then I could take them. They were there! So I got home and got in the Jeep and drove back over. I had to wait forever to make a left out of our neighborhood and get into their neighborhood and I saw the garbage truck turn down the street from the other direction. Oh no! The house with the chairs was only a few houses in. Traffic finally cleared for me and I turned onto their street and saw the garbage truck picking up the trash only a house away from my destination. Luckily, the truck seemed to stop for a moment so I was able to zip around it, turn on my hazard lights, and pull off to the side just in time as the garbage truck pulled up behind me. I got my chairs and the truck driver laughed as I gave him a thumbs up.

My wife was less amused with my garbage picking treasure hunting (as she always is), but she actually sort of likes the chairs so it looks like we can keep them... after the expiration of a 2 week quarantine period in the garage that she has mandated.

@Michigan Planner any races on the horizon? if/when they are allowed
I was going to run the international half of the Detroit Free Press Marathon a few weeks ago but that was canceled. Nothing else is on the immediate horizon but I’m keeping an eye out for a local 5k or 10k to run this winter.

If it occurs in 2021, the only big thing on my radar is the Marine Corps Marathon. I haven’t run it in a few years and I’d like to do it again.

I had plans to start doing XC next year (and possibly ultras)... but there is absolutely nothing scheduled round here for the foreseeable future. I guess my club's race program is still 'there' if we're allowed to run but I can't see any events that will attract crowds being allowed until vaccination is widespread.

Can you not do a time trial-style event with scheduled start times for your local club? I imagine your island can't have that many people. Or are you talking about your club in Japan?

My April 2020 race (Colfax Marathon in Denver) has been rescheduled for a third time now. First it was October, then it was changed to April ‘21, and now it’s been moved to October ‘21. We’ll see...
