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...

Running is in our genes...

`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run. ~ Bruce Springsteen

Yes, I realize I just quoted the Boss. And I also realize how incredibly uncool that is. But I just read this great Discovery Magazine article about how humans are uniquely able to run long distances.

Biomechanical research reveals a surprising key to the survival of our species: Humans are built to outrun nearly every other animal on the planet over long distances.
Pretty cool stuff, I must say. Probably not enough to offset my Bruce quote but whatchagonnado?

Today I didn't have a run scheduled so I went to the Rec Center to lift weights. It has been a LONG time since I hit the gym and I suspect I am going to pay for it tomorrow. I tried to take it easy and mostly managed to do so but given the time that has elapsed since my last sojourn into the weight room, I am not counting on being soreness-free in the morning.

Tomorrow I have an early appointment in Boulder, then a conference call and then will do an 8-miler with some strides down in the valley. Probably will just work some of the great bike/pedestrian trails Boulder has to offer but we'll see what happens in the morning.

Work it.
