Runners High In The Cloud Forest

I just finished an arduous 17-mile run around and through the Monteverde region of Costa Rica and wish I would have brought a camera with me. I ran about 7 miles on a rocky ridge that could easily have been in a magazine shoot. Definitely getting my legs back into ultra shape as I climbed and descended some pretty serious elevation changes this weekend. I was able to get a solid 14-miler in yesterday morning finishing the week with 60 miles. It has been nice up here because it is much cooler. I don't even want to think about what we will face on Wednesday as we make our journey back to Central New York!

Much talk of the earthquake that hit here the other day although we felt nothing as we gobbled down lunch. That's all for now...keep on keeping on!

Welcome to the blogging world, Yassine... took me a little while to catch on, huh! Best of luck in 2009.

I AM SO JEALOUS! You will need to be re-oriented to the snow when you return home.
