Friday - Craig and I rode up to Tijeras at lunch (21 miles) and then I met up with Ben and Leigh for a run with the new run FARR (Friday Afternoon Rescue Runners) group. Ended up doing 7.6 miles in 83 min.

Saturday - Up early and getting some vertical with my Baruntse mountaineering boots. Did a painful 6 miles and totally blistered my heals on both feet. I'm going to have to do major work with them to build up to Rainier vertical and distance! Met up with the AMRC OCC at Ranger Rock for high angle practice. It's fun being on the other side of the learning curve and helping the new guys learn the ropes. Got a beer with Lance to talk him into the Rainier trip at Molly's, a biker bar in Tijeras with live country/rock - that was an experience. Cycled downtown for a uninspiring date at Anodyne (4 mi, -400 ft elevation) and then had to ride back up in the rain and dark; how fitting.

Sunday - Final spring soccer game with Lovelace. Started the game at the top of the table of 22 second division teams. Ended in 2nd place with a sad 3-5 loss. Our defense fell apart a couple times on fast breaks. Hard to keep up when fit, young Mexicans are running at you all game. I played a mediocre left halfback and felt bad for not pressuring harder... but no injuries! I was happy to have a beer and burger with the team in celebration of a good season.
