I just wanted to thank you and Crossfit.

I have been trying to get back to decent running shape (without success) since I stopped my Ultra stuff four years ago due to (in time order) injuries, laziness and fatness.

Today, I did a 12 mile run on a hilly course after having done VERY little running training in the previous several months (in part due to Crossfit keeping me constantly trashed ;-) ).

Anyway, what I wanted to tell you is that it was my best run in YEARS and within 2 minutes of my PR from my days when I was in good Ultra shape. I had amazing strength and speed at the end – I was full out for the last three miles.

The only possible reason I was so strong and fast without much running has to be Crossfit. Let’s just hope no injuries return – something I also hope CrossFit is helping with!

So now I actually think I can do my first ultra in four years a – a 100K in Dec – a perfect cap to the Nutrition Challenge. Looking forward to more progress and suffering
