10/10/06 Wow, my season seems to be ending well - today I broke PRs for 3-miles (0:20:25), 4 miles (0:27:08), 5 miles (0:34:09), and the 10 K distance (0:42:59). I was still off my 2-mile PR by about 13 seconds however - that PR has stood since 1996!
10/08/06 Today Dan Turk and I broke the round-trip FKT for Towers Road with a time of 1:02:09. The old FKT of 1:04:56 was set by myself back on 07/14/05.
09/26/06 Today I smashed the open Fastest Known Time (FKT) for the descent of the North Summit of Horsetooth Rock. My descent time of 0:15:36 was probably more than a minute faster than the previous FKT (which was just listed as sub-17), set back in 1981! I also broke my ascent PR (0:30:23) and round-trip PR (0:46:56). Coming down, I ran 2 miles in 11:07 (a 5:34 min/mile pace) - also a PR for the fastest I've run 2-miles of downhill!
09/21/06 Today I broke several PR's during an 8-mile time trial: 3 miles in 0:20:30, 5 miles in 0:34:48, and 8 miles in 0:56:39! Most of these old PR's had stood since April.
08/20/06 I ran the Pikes Peak Marathon today in 5:08:31, breaking my personal best from last year by 15 min! Eventually I'll post my race report.
08/13/06 Today I broke my PR for the ascent of Horsetooth Rock (North summit) with a time of 0:31:53. I was trying to practice my 'race pace' for Pikes Peak - I wasn't really pushing at all. My previous time of 0:32:04 was set on 06/08/06.
07/31/06 Today I broke my PR for the full descent of Pikes Peak (following the marathon course) - my time was 1:54:31. My old descent time of 1:57:20 was set during last year's marathon race.
07/28/06 Today I broke the open descent FKT for Round Mountain, with a time of 0:37:18. The old FKT of 0:38:34 was set by me in 06/30/05.
07/23/06 Today I set a new PR for Longs Peak. I ran the strict Keyhole Route from the Ranger Station to the summit in only 2:19:52! I spent 0:05:59 at the top, then ran back down in 1:33:41 (less than 4 minutes off the FKT descent). My total time was 3:59:32, which bettered my previous fastest hiking time by just over 3 hrs!

07/04/06 Today I broke the open FKT for the descent of Arthurs Rock, with a time of 0:12:01. The old FKT (0:12:??) was set back in 2002 by Todd Rivas. There have been several reroutes of the trail since then, so my time is not directly comparable to his time. My previous PR for the descent was 0:17:06 set back in May 4, 2003. Even with a 0:10:19 wait at the top (for another runner), my round-trip time of 0:45:38 was also a round-trip PR.
06/08/06 Today I broke the open FKT for the descent of Horsetooth Rock (North Summit), with a time of 0:16:58. This was several minutes faster than my previous time of 0:19:19 set 08/16/05. I also broke my PRs for the ascent and roundtrip, with times of 0:32:04 and 0:50:07, respectively (I spent 0:01:05 at the summit). My previous PR for the ascent was 0:32:20 set on 10/20/04. My previous round-trip PR was 0:53:40 set on 08/16/05.
04/18/06 Hmmm, it's probably a bad idea to break multiple PR's in the same week. Oh well - today I broke my 3-mile (0:20:39) and 4-mile (0:27:26) flat PR's during a FCTR tempo run (thanks to some great pacing by Matt Bedoukian). My old PR's of 0:20:48 and 0:28:00, respectively, were set on 10/04/05.
04/16/06 During my long training run, I did a quasi time trial up Arthurs Rock, following the standard route. My time was 0:23:15, starting from the end of the bridge (so, a 30-s penalty has been applied), to the true summit (less distance than the other summit with the better view). This was just over a minute off the Fastest Known Time of 0:21:38, set by Todd Rivas in 2004.
01/06/06 I had a fast run today at Coyote Ridge with Mike Smith. After checking my records, I discovered that I did break my PR for this route with a time of 0:58:37. This was surprising since I had stopped at the restroom and also fell during the run. My old PR was 0:59:02, set in 04/27/05.
