UTMB Newsletter

Have just received the second UTMB Newsletter and thought I'd start posting the links here - they are a great read.

I've had a nasty cold since last Sunday and have not run since then. This is starting to worry me... I'm ready to get back on the trail.

Running in Tyler

While in Tyler a week or so ago I re-discovered a great (improved) running network between the Rose Rudman Recreational Trail and the (new) South Tyler Trail system. Although relatively short and flat, (entire combined route is about eight kilometers), the combination of well lighted, wooded areas make excellent running in the Texas heat!

Harzquerung Cancelled

Well... Like 2008, I'm going to have to miss out on the Harzquerung again this year. Because of the volcano eruption in Iceland I got stuck in the US until 21 April; arrived in Germany on 22 April with a cold that just won't quit... Will see if I can get a Harzquerung done on an odd year in 2011!

Road Trip

Have been back home with my son to get him signed up for college etc., during Spring Break. The running has been pretty good (pictures and details to follow). As luck or news of the weird would have it, we're stuck in Texas because of a volcano in Iceland (can't fly into northern Europe). So.... I think we're going to take a road trip or two. Will let you know how the running goes...
