AM: run over to meet the guys to get a ride out to BCSP for some trail running. Got a late start and had to try to get there in time.  unplanned 3 mile TH run.  Got there just in time.  about 80minutes trail running on the park trails.  Some good climbs, but mostly a leisurely pace.  The guys talked me into running the 50k next Saturday...

easy, but tight  jog back home after 30 min. in the car and getting droped off back in town.

14.41 mi. total - about 2 hours.

8am start for this 50k in Jackson County Start Park near Brownstown, IN.  The area recieved asignificant amount of rain in the days leading up to the race and literally stopped 30 minutes prior to the start of the race.  40 degrees and comfortable weather, but the trails were an absolute mudfest.  The 5 Quaff guys were the lone leaders from the beginnning of the race.  10 minutes in to the race as we hit the first mudhole portion of the trail, I took a very awkward step and really tweaked my left ankle.  I actually heard (more like felt the sharp pain) of it popping.  It hurt a lot when it happened, but did not continue to hurt as I went on running.  The course was a small 1 mile loop followed by a repeat of 3 10 mile loops.  So, everything went well and we stayed in the tiht 5 guy pack for big loop 1.  It actually did not really start hurting bad until half way through lap 2 (3 hours later).  DNF time.  I hobbled walking into the start finish area and called it a day stopping the watch at 21.4 miles - 3:24:39. 

With the ankle in bad shape, and no real upcoming big targets for a couple months, time for a full week off.  I think this may be the first time taking more than 2or3 days off running in the alst 3 or 4 years.
