It's in the Bag!

It's that time of year again.  Everywhere I look people are making resolutions and goals for the coming year.  Not one to totally ignore what everyone else is doing I decided to not disregard it this time and join instead.  I don't have many goals for the new year and here they are.

  1. Build on the foundation of the 100+Project.
  2. Increase my level of fitness
  3. Spend 12nights in the bag.
More to follow...End Transmission...

Total Reboot!

Q: So what do you do when your computer starts to get slow and bloated with cookies?

Visit Savage Chickens for more hilarity!

A: Reboot it!
A couple of years ago I read an article about the shelf life of PR's (Personal Records).  The Basic premise was that having a 17min PR for a 5k is great, provided you didn't run it 20years ago when you were on the high school cross country team, and you currently run in the high 20's if at all.  I agree with this philosophy whole heartedly.
As most of you know the quality of my running has diminished considerably as of late so I won't bore you with details.  During this mornings run out on the trails I was so disgusted with myself that I decided to wipe the slate clean of all my old PR's, and start over.  Lets face it there is know way that I could come close to any of them without extensive training.  Plus I feel like Brett Michaels, nobody wants to hear his new music they just want to hear "Every Rose Has It's Thorn", I don't want to run all slow and bloated all the while talking about the time I used to run well.  I'm too young to be a HasBeen!  Which brings us back to the Reboot.
Starting today everything is new again.  It will be a long slow climb back to where I was and an even farther climb to where I want to be.  I just don't want to be the Brett Michaels of running anymore.

No offense to Brett Michaels.  His music is probably awesome.

100+Project dot com

Ladies and Gentlemen I am proud to announce the new website for the 100+Project.  I thought it was time to separate it from this blog so things could go back to normal plus it is easier to refer someone to 100plusproject.com than patrick-trailanderror.blogspot.com (curse the person squatting on trailanderror.com).

There will certainly be overlap at times but I will try to keep it to a minimum (wink).


So what are you waiting for? Click the link and check out the new site.  Trust me it will get better in time!

Castlewood Experience Video

Robin put together a nice video from all the footage that was shot during the Castlewood 8hour race.  We all had a great time and it ended up being one of my favorite races ever.

I hope we do it again next year!
