I had my appointment for my knee at Houston Orthopaedic here in Warner Robins. They did a great job and Dr. Wiley was really helpful.

Basically my IT Band is getting overworked and putting stress on my other tendons surrounding my knee. I can run through it but I will need a short break followed by alot of stretching. That means I can keep the 40 miler on the schedule for December.

Check out the topo for the my race this weekend. I am getting pretty pumped.

I haven't decided if I will bring a camera for actual race. I will bring it for the pre and post activities. I have an older/heavier camera. I want to though.

As I sit in the store my mind goes back to trek world and the perfect weather and trail conditions we had.

11 days and counting before the 50K. My knee feels better today. Today will make it 3 rest days so tomorrow we will give it a go on some nice soft surfaces and test it out.

I am enjoying a nice Grande Caramel Macchiato
and this scene popped into my head from Youve Got Mail. Yeah I know I am a dork.

Have a good one!

I went out for my 20 miler early Saturday and the temperature outside was amazing. The first 45 minutes into the run was good until my right knee started to hurt. It eventually locked up and I had to walk. I kept walking until it loosened up and started to run again. I was able to get in 18 miles. It didn't hurt it was just tight afterwards. I haven't had any problems leading up to this. I have been training since march and exactly two weeks before my event is here I have a problem. I called to schedule an appointment to get things looked at but they have not called me back. I have been stretching a ton and icing it. It doesn't hurt right now but I can feel some soreness. We will see. My attitude is, I am going regardless even if I have to walk. The race is on the 4 oct.

Hammer Nutrition hooked me up for the 4 Hour again this year. Thanks a ton I wouldn't have done it with out you.

I need to get more organized.

The bike I wish I could ride more often.

I went out an ran 8.5 miles yesterday and felt good. My 50K is coming up quick. Only a couple of more weeks.

I have been using this shoe and this shoe. Both are working very nice.

4 Hours of Pig

The 2nd annual 4 Hours of Pig was a success. Check out the site for all the results. Please comment and let me know what you thought of the race.

Thanks for all the participants and all the volunteers. I plan on keeping this thing going year after year. My goal is to give the volunteers and participants everything I can for as little money as possible. Next year is going to be even better!

I hope everyone enjoyed it.
