Franklin Park Conservatory - The Sequel (July '09)

So I again found myself headed to the Franklin Park Conservatory, with trusty Pentax D-SLR in hand. The FPC is quickly becoming one of my favorite local spots for taking pictures ... plenty of photo opportunities between the flowers and all the Chihuly pieces.

Outer Limits Duathlon

Did Ultrafit-USA's Outer Limits Duathlon this morning ... its a local race, flat and not too long - like a 2 mile run, followed by a 16 mile bike, then a 5K run. Second run felt a bit short of reported length, but I won't complain. Went fairly well, but I definitely have some work to do if I am seriously considering a half-iron in September.

Wore my heart rate monitor, not so much to dictate pace but more out of curiosity ... according to the monitor, my heart rate averaged 162 BPM during the race which is just below my AT. Max HR was apparently 183. Should probably have my heart rate re-tested, as I'm working off data that is like 2 years old. Hmmm.

Legs feel pretty good now - a big thank you to the Running Gods for permitting an injury-free race ...

Olympic National Park - Part 4 (Seattle/peeps)

And it was brought to my attention that I didn't have any people pictures in any of my prior ONP posts ... so below are a few random shots of "my peeps", as well as a few Seattle pics mixed in here and there.
