"highly realistic simulated beard models?" ...hahahahahahahaha!
this article is too much, man. i laughed so hard while reading it that i actually shot whiskey out of my nose. which felt like awesome.
but then also like horrible hell.
i still haven't cleaned the tears from my beard.
got out to the mountains today for the first time in too long. my knee is still not better. but i don't care. mutiny will not be tolerated aboard this ship.
it's a short vid! i swear! plus you get to see how i look once i've run out of contact lenses! bonus feature!
two more days. back to the States. which will be great. but let me take a moment to thank the nation of Chile for giving me a holiday today in honor of the Virgen del Carmen.
She'd just be called "Carmen" if she had met me...
...i keep forgetting that i don't have any contact lenses and i've grown this beard and that means i no longer can even begin to hope for any random play at the bars. let alone from religous-holiday-worthy babes (judging from a painting i saw near a church the other day).

Done! Twice before breakfast!
The quote from the linked article below was the original inspiration for this post. But me being me, I couldn't resist a good masturbation joke. Did I mention that I'm 30 fuckin' years old now?
"I love my bike because I’m trying to learn how to love myself. That’s the truth. Drink to that."
One more week of fixing my knee and then (hopefully) back to jogging. Love me some jogging.
Back to the States in 5 days.
About 12 weeks until the TNF Chile 50 miler.
New race in Chile this year. Think I'll go. Looks good:
Vulcano Ultra Trail 2013 - Episodio 1 from Vulcano Ultra Trail on Vimeo.
Actually, there's another new race in Chile this year. But, to me, Andes Infernal is really more of a stunt. It's a 60k ultra with 17,700 ft of gain, which supposedly would make it the race with the most elevation change per kilometer in the world (aside from Vertical K races). Also, it summits Cerro El Plomo, which tops out at over 17,000 ft. above sea level. I'm no expert on altitude...but isn't rapidly ascending to 17,000 ft. sort of dangerous?
With Hardrock wrapping up today and thinking about altitude and my natural inclination towards being a pussy: I don't think that a race as high as this Andes Infernal sounds like fun at all. I suppose if I had the time to acclimate and train up high for a few months before hand, I might consider it...
...which leads me to ramble incoherently about something that's been sticking in my mind lately. I don't know what to think about this hypoxic tent business that's suddenly very much in trail/mountain running. It sort of rubs me the wrong way.
...speaking of rubbing me...
3rd time's a charm, right?

...end of the semester woes. Just one more week of madness and then I'm headed back to the States for a week! I haven't had much time to work on my nerdy little running projects. I'm hoping this weekend to catch up. My knee is giving me some shit so I may find myself with extra time and energy for the next couple days.
Turned 30 last Monday. 11 hours at the office and then in bed by 9:30pm. How did I suddenly age 10 years in 6 months?
Great great stuff over at the Chile blog:
Hope your U.S. summer is hot and bothered...or your Chilean winter is wet and wild!
