Hard workout for me at this point in my fitness. Kind of starting
from scratch. Going to be doing a lot of these kinds of workouts
So I can practice my hiking skills for Leadville 100.

On my diet note I'm pretty much 100% Vegan. I like the way I feel
eating a plant based diet. My weight without really trying is several pounds
lower than when I was eating meat. I am sitting at around 138.

Looking ahead

Looking at 2016 I have a exciting new sponsor. Runners Roost Trail & Ultra Race team MUT.
It's going to be a busy year. With my main focus being a 100 mile trail race. The plan is
to enter the Leadville 100 lottery next month.
I have been in rest mode the past month after doing my last marathon for the year in Maine.
It was far from my best marathon as the build up just didn't go well. I had too many miles
on my legs from my busy trail and ultra season.
I'm going to start building my base back up starting this week. It will be a slow build up.
With it getting a bit more serious come January.
