Really stupid...

If an idea is good, it's on the verge of being stupid. ~ Michel Gondry

I have always had this theory… get a group of people in a room, throw out a bunch of ideas and at the end of the night, look at your list to find the most idiotic and that's the one you should do.

This blog was spawned from one very stupid idea - run the Leadville 100. I gave that a shot in the summer of '07 - completed 73 miles - and survived. The blog lives on...

Did I mention I can't deal with heat?

If you can't take the heat, try moving away from the radiator. ~ Anon (probably some jackass named "stubert"

No wonder I felt like crap today. I was supposed to have a nice, steady, aerobic run but that plan went out the window and I just kinda suffered for about 2 hours on the Mesa Trail. Always a fan of changing plans (seems like I had a conversation with myself about this at one point), I started with the tentative goal of doing the whole Trail (out/back) which would have been about 13 miles. After passing NCAR, I tossed that horrendous idea out the window and decided to just go with the scheduled 10-mile.

I couldn't figure out what was going on but experienced the same sort of high heartrate as Tuesday. I was soaked with sweat and had a tough time running a lot of the hills without really spiking. When I got back to the car, the temp said 96 degrees. Yikes. In any event, I finished and didn't cry so I am chalking this one up in the "Tie" column.
