I Live in Iowa: Week 222

It was a nice week, a little quiet, which is nice sometimes. 

Work was not too eventful, which believe me, is a good thing. We even had an off site lessons learned meeting for the last five years of stuff that we have worked on. Off site meetings are rare. They are a treat! We had lunch, we even received little wooden plaques from the leaders for our work!

Running was good, I ran every day for 43 miles I think, no workouts. Getting back into it. I was sore the first few days of the week from all of the hiking last weekend. 

Obviously getting back to Dubuque after summering Mt. Rainier and almost Mt. Hood in three mountain days is great! It doesn't get much better. This coming weekend I am excited to go see the movie Everest!

In the magnesium chronicles I took my first Epsom salt bath Thursday night, and then slept from 8 PM to 8 AM. Epsom salts are magnesium sulphate, and again, magnesium relaxes your muscles. 

In other news, at the 24 hour national championship Harvey ran a course record 157 miles, Olivier ran 153 and Jenny on the women's side ran 137 miles! A strong race! Way to go friends! On the other side of the country Kelsey, who I helped bicycle across Wisconsin, rode 510 miles in the Silver State 508 in something like 46 hours including sleep without a crew!
