While I’m not running any races this year, I am trying to get my body (and my dog) in shape so that I can tackle some big adventure races next year. Since I’m old and not really an athlete anymore, I wanted to make sure the training — biking, CrossFit, and running — didn’t overwhelm me.

Last night, we finished up our training plan through October, and today started the journey.

On our first run, I packed a bunch of my ultra-gear, which meant I could take my camera. Here’s Maxx, post water break, doing his majestic thing.
