Roads in Grand Teton NP. 190&#39; gain.</p> Sun, 20 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Aug 19, 2017 http://CollinAnderson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-19-2017.html <p>Easy win at Harriman 50k (because&nbsp;Fritz didn&#39;t run). Lost 5 min due to screwed-with flags in first loop. Eventually backed off until I could&nbsp;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&nbsp;saw him again a mile after that. Easy effort for a race, but I won&nbsp;by probably 30 min, so I didn&#39;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.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Sat, 19 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Aug 18, 2017 http://CollinAnderson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-18-2017.html <p>Shakeout. 7:26 AP.</p> Fri, 18 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Aug 16, 2017 http://CollinAnderson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-16-2017.html <p>Tapering for Sat. 6:25 AP.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Wed, 16 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Aug 15, 2017 http://CollinAnderson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-15-2017.html <p>Am: 16.1.
