Ultra runner here
This summer has been pretty brutal to train in with all the heat, but getting it done. Did 29 miler this past Saturday that got a bit ugly with the humidity.
August and September are my race months, Marquette 50k in August, Barkley Fall Classic "50K"(more like 60K) and Rock Creek Stump Jump 50K in September. Will really be a test to see if I can knock out two ultra races in 2 weeks which I've not done before and they're both mountainous difficult trail races. Should be good times.
Hopefully headed up north to train on the North Country trail around Mesick this weekend. Really hilly and really nice trail up there.

Devil Dancer from Founders.
For my money Big South Fork National Recreation Area. I'm going back in 2 weeks. Absolutely stunning natural scenery, arches, natural bridges, canyons, and hoodoos formations. Same driving distance as the Smokys but absolutely zero crowds.

Today ends what was one of the best and worst weeks of my job. One of those weeks where you get epic bad news followed by epic good news and it just did that ALL. WEEK. LONG. Hoping that since it's Friday it'll be a mellow day here. Seeing Capt America Civil War with the best friend, then drinking beer. 6 hours to go til I can leave.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Speaking medically 5th||
Speaking medically 5th metacarpal/metatarsal fractures of the hand or the foot are usually long, surgically repaired nightmare recoveries. Our anatomy is such that we don't have great bloodflow around that area which can slow healing or lead to incomplete healing so risk of re-fracture is high. Definitely not an injury you mess around with. I hope Caris the best and hopefully he can recover enough to play a few years in the NBA. Poor damn Caris

I realize that, but I left out the important part, she was the one that wanted to do most of these things and we had laid out the plan to do those things months in advance because it's a remote location and those day trips to other islands required advanced planning. Just getting anywhere down there requires a modicum of planning because there isn't much in the way of reliable transportation. In fact, she was the one that was wanted to travel to the South Pacific in the first place.
And I couldn't do things without her because "it was our honeymoon" and we had to spend it together no matter what. She went full control freak on me that week which she had never done before in our relationship. Without deep diving too much it marked a paradigm shift in our relationship and eventually would lead to our divorce because that control freak behavior morphed into full on emotional/mental abuse by her. So yeah, I'm still way salty about that trip and it was 5 years ago.

Honeymoon with now ex-wife, we decided to cheap out on the wedding and blow the money on the honeymoon. Went to Bora Bora and Tahiti. Had everything planned out ahead of time, what we were going to do, exploring, hiking, snorkeling etc. We get there and she changes her tune, doesn't want to do anything. We ended up doing two things on our itinerary.... snorkeling with sharks and a massage.
We were supposed to do two day trips to two other islands island, never happened, we were supposed to go scuba diving at the entrance of the lagoon, didn't happen. Hike to various WW2 naval guns in the jungle, nope, hike to the highest accessible point on Bora Bora, NOPE. So basically we flew down to one of the most expensive, unique and beautiful places in the world and did....nothing for 8 days.
At the time it should have been a signal that she wasn't the one...still chaps my ass to this day and I'm saving money to go back next year and do all those things that I missed out on.

Quarterfinal games should be at the higher ranked teams home stadium.
Semifinals can use the same format as now.

I'll channel Andy Staples a bit and say it should be 8 teams. I look at that and as a fan salivate over some of those matchups.
1 Clemson vs 8 Notre Dame (First game was epic, 2nd game probably just as much)
2 Alabama vs 7 Ohio State (Saban's revenge??)
3 MSU vs 6 Stanford (beat each other with large rocks football, B1G vs Pac 12 tradition)
4 Oklahoma vs 5 Iowa (Air Raid vs Ferentz's pretty great secondary)
Of course with an 8 team playoff these ranking and teams may be a bit different but still. I really think some amazing games would ensue

Good. He can stay under the radar for another year thanks.

Once again the MGoQuestions are the best in the room.
I do like how Mattison is deflecting some of the praise for the D Line to the secondary. He's absolutely right without good coverage you can have world beaters at D Line but it won't matter because you'll never get pressure in time.

On the wizard interception my favorite part is Pepper's reaction.
He does a minor windmill arm freak out when he realizes Lewis has the ball then immediately provides the key block on that NU receiver.

YESSSSSSSSSSSS Time for trail running, cold beer and watching Michigan derail Northwestern!
|51 weeks 7 hours ago||Seriously love Baxter.||
Seriously love Baxter. Clearly very intelligent and coaching these guys up more than I can ever remember for Michigan special teams. I love him basically saying "we play to our player's strength" what a freaking concept after watching so much foundering the last 10 years.

Braden looks like he's ready to kill a man dead in that photo.

"Great block by Jehu Chesson on the second touchdown. I can’t wait to watch that one on tape."
Apparently Harbaugh enjoys Chesson trucking dudes as much as MGoBlog does. I watched that 15 yard Rudock TD run about 20 times last night because Chesson just laid that BYU guy out.

There was a BYU family in front of me at the game today. They were SO SALTY by halftime. Dad straight up rage quit at the start of the 4th quarter. Their one kid was literally in the fetal position during every "You suck" chant and the mom to her credit stayed until the bitter end. When M failed to convert that 4 & 2 to Canteen she turned around and said to me "YAY you guys finally stopped yourself!!!"
Fantastic game from start to finish.

I've had two nights in a row. One of the best beers I've had. My girlfriend who isn't much of a porter fan absolutely loved it.

Lil Griz brown ale aged in bourbon barrels
Going to the game tomorrow! Go Blue!!!

Moxie...no one uses that word anymore, great use of it to describe O'Korn. Makes me excited to see what he can do next spring. I'd argue he could easily win the starting job next year.

Doesn't it usually drop between 2 and 3 pm EDT....so close now folks...so close...I specifically got to work early, so I could leave work early so I could veg with UFR at home.

Probably Dragon's Milk and/or Black Tulip from New Holland.
If things go pear shaped then moonshine
If things go well, tequila.

Did what I always do on the day of the season opener. Blasted "The Victors" and Varsity on my car on my way into work. If I don't have to work on season opener day then I'll blast both songs in the house.
Generally there is some sort of smoked meat that my dad will make and I'll put together a side dish or two. And beer. And tequila. And a guarantee at some point my dad will channel his inner Bo and stomp around the living room yelling when something dumb happens.
13 hours til gametime boys!
