Had a good long run today (2 hours and 35 minutes), from my house, around the perimeter of the Garden of the Gods, then up Rampart Range Road for about 2 miles (to the forest information sign?), and then back home. Felt good and played around with various 'fuels' that I recently purchased (S! Caps, Hammer Gels, etc.).
I ran long and slow, trying to get time on my feet, in preparation for the Grand Canyon R2R2R. I am sore now from about 13 miles...I am wondering if I am biting off too much trying 43 in the Grand Canyon...?
