we've come a long way. copson, cory (both pictured) and i got out and rode the trail for the first time together for probably 3 years! great fun, and i got some good shots and this video (copson's wife jenny works for yahoo on this new site they bought called jumpcut - it's basically online video editing and publishing).
after the ride and a nap i was able to talk copson into a trail run. he's training for his first marathon - the san fran marathon. we ran from tiger mtn road se on tiger mtn trail to s tiger traverse to the road and back tiger mtn trail - 6.6 miles and 1,300 feet of climbing. i have to say i was impressed with copson's running! he even led the way up the steepest climb.. running the whole thing.
knee news - i haven't had any knee pain in a week! i'm ecstatic about it. today was a great test - three+ hours of real training and it didn't hurt at all... i now feel like i can ramp up my training without making it worse or suffering a setback. let's all cross our fingers.
