Mid-afternoon birthday run up to summit of Bergen Peak from home via frontside roads then Painters Pause, Founders and Too Long Trails. Steady, but not pushing it hard. Lots of people out on this beautiful Memorial Day. HIt the summit in 1:01.
Pushed the descent in order to get to a massage appointment JP made for me. Got home...dashed in the door...jumped in the shower...and ran out the door (with a peanut butter sandwich and bottle of water courtesy of JP) to speed to the massage appointment. Then, spent an hour and a half getting a week's worth of hard training worked out of the muscles by Tess of Treetop Thai Massage in downtown Evergreen. She's great. Highly recommended.
My first massage since July 2008. Made me wonder why I don't get massages more often. Must make a post-Lake City appointment...
Great capstone to a fabulous Memorial Day Weekend of running.
