A most welcome sign for runners. Who wouldn't want to tackle this beautiful road? Another inspirational service at Church of the Sunday Long Run in #Flagstaff with @patkc13 @macfleet @haasruns @hassyhass35 and @tomfarrell1 .

Hats off to @macfleet @patkc13 @tomfarrell1 and the @oregontrackclubelite for winning the first annual Flagstaff Cricket Darts Challenge. It was a close game until "skill" came in to play. #verynice #nikerunning #threestripelife

It went DOWN today in Sedona. Workout after workout after workout was crushed by visitors from Flagstaff. Very Nice Track Club members @willisnick @maverickdarling and I conquered another Ron Warhurst special today: 8 x 45 second hill reps followed by 200m/300m/400m/600m/800m/2x300m at race pace. Touching race pace at 4,500 ft was a shock but surprising how smooth it felt with the crew. Excited to step on the track and let the legs rip in a couple of weeks! #verynice #nikerunning #nevernotrunning Photo credit: @tomfarrell1

AFTER THE PARTY IT'S THE AFTERPARTY. @willisnick recounts today's #verynice workout to the @flotrack_trackisback film crew. On tap was a four mile tempo followed by 6x600m and 4x200m, but it was a lot harder than it sounds at 7,000 ft. Many thanks to @nautrackfieldxc for allowing us access to their beautiful 300m indoor track after Mother Nature dropped six inches of the fluffy white stuff on us over night. Here's to another great day of training in #Flagstaff .

CHURCH OF THE SUNDAY LONG RUN Why Flagstaff? This is why. It takes a special place to unite the home and visiting teams. Today saw @nautrackfieldxc @naz_elite @teamrunflag @ppxc_tf @oregontrackclubelite and the Very Nice Track Club converge for their weekly long runs on Woody Mountain Road. Many thanks to all for showing up. Even as the running community here continues to grow it maintains its inclusiveness. It's one of the main reasons we all keep coming back. #nikerunning #verynice #flagstaff #longrun #nevernotrunning

Do you still get the urge to run with reckless abandon? We might call it "sprints" or "strides" now, but not all that long ago we called it "playing". This evening, at Buffalo Park, was one of those times for @willisnick . After an easy 5 miles with @bbjamin15 @aishapraught @maverickdarling and myself, the setting sun illuminated this Kiwi's vivacious grin and he just had to run. What this photo failed to capture was the animal mimicry which took place mere seconds afterwards when a foursome of deer bounded past us in pure enjoyment of their own athleticism. Impressed and clearly inspired, Nick's final strides were powerful, smooth and awesome to watch. They were, simply put, very nice!

TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK. Great day of tempo running with @maverickdarling alongside a couple of our @naz_elite hosts @bbjamin15 and @mattllano . High fives all around. #verynice #nikerunning

"Yeah Coach, I eat fish." -Hassan Mead. A hard day of training requires proper replenishment. Tonight's meal, courtesy of @aishapraught , consisted of the following: wild sockeye salmon, roasted sweet potatoes, kale salad and sautéed squash.

THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN. Had a great first workout in Flagstaff with @naz_elite as our hosts. Many thanks for not letting the paces get out of control for the sea-level creatures. #verynice #nikerunning #flagstaff

Working out (credit @macfleet for the Structure flats) @jwjeffer @jeffersonsean & @nicksymmonds on their 32nd and 31st respective birthdays really has me appreciating still being in my 20's. We had the Santa Monica College track going up on this Tuesday and we weren't really all that choosy. #nofilter #nikerunning #tempo #birthday #oldmanstrength #legsfordays

MUSCLE BEACH: where middle distance kids go to play weight training (and hone their acting skillz). Fun morning in Venice with @aishapraught @nicksymmonds @jeffersonsean & @jwjeffer . #nofilter #noflexzone

Happy Birthday to my now quarter-centenarian P.I.C. @aishapraught . Looking forward to many more shared adventures!

#tbt to the days when life was a little more simple. Superman tank? Why not. AND the karate kid crane pose? Absolutely. To this day my brother @maxwellleer and I manage to get those ridiculous, belly-aching laughs out of one another. I was lucky then, and am lucky now. Laugh on! #brothers #laughter #superman #karatekid #cranepose #montauk

Miles on miles on miles, this one away from Bridezilla. November 1, 2014, marks the official start to my training year. The break worked; I'm refreshed and rejuvenated, ready to throw myself fully in to training. Here we go! #nikerunning #nike #nevernotrunning #santamonica #california #verynice Photo credit: @jwjeffer , duh.

#tbt to last night when @chromeo killed it in Eugene. So much energy. So much dancing. So much fun. Thanks for the memories. #otc=onthatchromeo

Over the weekend we went on a little trip to the mountains. On the way back we took the long way home. I picked out a rock and gave it to her. She accepted. Photo cred: @jwjeffer

Taking the scenic route: On our drive back from a sensational weekend in Bend, Oregon, @aishapraught @jwjeffer and I decided to take the McKenzie Scenic Byway back to Eugene and were handsomely rewarded. The unexpected "sea of lava" at the top of the pass was the highlight for me as I got to see Aisha in her element geeking out on rocks (she majored in Geology). The scenic route definitely paid off.

It's a perfect fall Sunday and @aishapraught is going #whitegirlcrazy on a #pumpkin latte #inbend
