The relaxation of jury duty did not last long. I was back at work the following day, eating lunch at my desk etc. However, I am reading my book on the bus now. Since I checked a book out of the library I had to read it faster than usual since I have to return it on time or else...the library police comes after me.
Owen designed the Cougar Mt 20mile/50k shirts and because of that we received a complimentary entry to the race. We decided to run the 20 miler for something different and also because the following weekend we were signed up for Carkeek 12 hour. The 20 miler was fun! I started trail running at Cougar Mt back in 2005 and had done my first trail series there which included my first ever half marathon. I had heard some people saying that they were going out for another loop as I stood at the finish line panting, bloody and thinking how I just finished my first half marathon, the farthest I had ever run. I could not believe what i had heard. So of course I inquired and they told me that they were training for White River 50 miler. WHAT! I was flabbergasted. I was also intrigued. So I did some research and began my training.....
