And now, the taper

Next time I ever say, "Hey, let's sign up for a race in August." - just shoot me. Worst. Idea. Ever.

But here we are - 2 weeks out from the Leanhorse 100 and I'm feeling anxious. Good, but anxious.

My attitude and mileage had been trending down prior to this weekend but I was able to spend a day in Payson, AZ on Saturday with a group of other runners to run the Mogollon Rim (part of the Mogollon Monster 100).

Beautiful mountainous views. Check.

Difficult yet scenic single-track trails. Check.

Awesomely cool weather. Check.

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy while I begin my taper.
