One of the perks of teaching is having vacation the same time as my kids. This year we are spending Christmas with my in-laws in La Grande, Oregon. I have spent the last few days on a steady diet of smoked salmon, running, naps, and guitar hero. I have been running for the first time in the Brooks Burn 3 and I have been very pleased. They are very light (10.5) oz, breathable, and have a cool lateral " arch pod" much like the Vitesse. I was concerned about traction but they held up fine on a wide variety of snow covered surfaces. I was hoping to get in a few runs on dirt but it looks like winter is here also......oh, well maybe in May.
El Vaquero Loco 2014 - Thanks for making this year's race such a success.
11th annual. Saturday, August 8th, 2015. Out and back course on nearly 100% singletrack. Beautiful vistas. Very tough and technical. It has been our experience that you run the 25k if you are not used to running technical trails at altitude.
