Daily Note

15 miles down at the Enola rail trail. Got like 3.5 hours of sleep so it took me a while to get ready in the morning. Felt real solid on this run in every aspect besides my stomach. GI issues from mile 4-15. Had to stop at the portapotty at every opportunity. Bad feeling out there. Afterwards, I kayaked on the Connestoga river with my dad. It was about 8 miles of winding river from Millersville down to the Safe Harbor Dam. Long day but really fun. Probably the longest I've been outside in a while, too. ~~~~~Just found out that Gabe Grunewald is in the final stages of losing her fight with cancer. All over letsrun and whatnot. She ran for Minnesota, then Brooks. Got fucked by AlSal in the usatf indoor championships one year when she was disqualified for bumping into Jordan Hasay. Y'all remember. Kind of one of those runners who always positive, always fought hard, and regarded by everyone who knew her as an overall outstanding human. Learning about this hit me pretty hard, just like David Torrence's death did. I dunno. Never met her, never saw her much in running news, but always really liked her. Sad day for running.
