Are you from Chicago? It’s a good course. As flat as can be. Tons of crowd cheering the entire way. Last I ran it was 2015. Marathoning is just too much of a time commitment for me. Only 1/2’s now. Just trying to make those faster. I usually volunteer at the race. I’ll keep an eye out for you amongst the 40,000.

I'm in Utah nowadays, but I grew up in MN and my parents both ran Chicago back in the 90s, so I was out there during the race years ago. Yeah, I'm looking forward to a nice fast, low altitude course!

@rocket waywt compression leg sleeves edition:

Zensah sleeves (the good, the bad, and the argyle?), dirty girl gaiters, Salomon sense ride. My last big run before Plain 100, though unintentionally bigger than planned at 35 mi and 9700 feet gain

Ran 5.6 miles and climbed 3,630 feet to this abandoned fire Lookout. We arrived in the dark at 8:30pm, Stayed the night and ran out the back way 10 miles. My first go at ‘fast packing’ it was a blast! We had Milky Way for dinner and a sunrise for breakfast!

Jealous of @Brock right about now :)

Running a 5k today. The Two Roads Brewery Shore to Pour Run. I try to do an organized 5k every other week or so. Beer and Philipino BBQ to follow. I just learned that a good chunk of this race is over sand 😑   Woohooo!!
Maybe so. Maybe not

Fekk that, dude, you did it. Deserves a B-BOOM!

That menu looks tidy too. The pork shoulders is getting me all juicy.

Well gents, sad to say I will not be participating in the Plain 100 after all.
Went hiking/scrambling with two friends last week to visit a hard to get to summit in Indian Peaks Wilderness. Got most of the way there, and past all of the most difficult movement (the first time, this was an out and back), when I tripped on the easy talus walking about .2 miles away from the goal. Put my hands up of course. Heard a pop when I hit the ground, lots of pain, and saw a small but obvious deformity in my left wrist.
So still did the summit and hiked 6.5 hours back out in up to third class terrain. Lots of easier but loose talus and and scree along the way too.
I broke the left Radius about an inch below the wrist. Currently still in a splint, should get a real cast this week. My first broken bone ever! Bad timing I guess- was really looking forward to this one. Thought about it for a few days, but I essentially can’t use my left hand at all right now.
But in all, was able to get out under my own power with a lot of route finding help from my two friends I was with. Not seriously injured, though the hike out effing sucked. This happened at around 12500 feet- had to get back above 13200 to get out. And echoing through my mind, people die up there. There were plenty of chances for a fatal or higher consequence fall that day, so glad it wasn’t worse.
Plain will still be there next year.

Some of the terrain we crossed pre fall. Able to find an easier route back.
