Personal:

I am a bioengineering PhD currently working as a post-doctoral research fellow in the Department of Neurology at the University of Utah, where I design neurosurgical approaches for treating movement disorders. I was sort of fast until I put running on the back burner at the end of grad school and am trying to get sort of fast again now.

Am: 8 miles with Fritz and Michael Rees. 7:19 AP with 289' gain. Pm: 5.8 home. Threw in a 1.4 mile pickup at 5:30 pace to get a strava record because I'm apparently motivated by easy records. 😹

Easy win at Harriman 50k (because Fritz didn't run). Lost 5 min due to screwed-with flags in first loop. Eventually backed off until I could run with someone who knew the course. He tried to drop me at halfway when I spent 30s drinking fruit punch. I caught back up 1 mile later and never saw him again a mile after that. Easy effort for a race, but I won by probably 30 min, so I didn't need to do more. Encouraging before Bear, but I still need to get better at eating more while running ultras. I had course a little short, but I had watch on a less accurate mode. RD apparently mapped it dead on. Who knows or cares.
