Bond Park-Davis-Apex Park

This morning's run went well. The air was thick and heavy with humidity and I was soaked but all things considered, it was fine. Right now I have a lot of fatigue in my legs and they are simply not fully recovering from workout-to-workout. Another 16 miles in the books at any rate. I got a bit dehydrated but I'm feeling better now.

Note: Ran before breakfast. Two Hammer gels en route. I had the smaller amphipod with me and I should have brought the larger one. I got spoiled with last weekend's weather!

I had a nice ride and a cookout with my parents today. Long run in tap for tomorrow.

Note: Two fig newtons, two Clif bars, one Honey Stinger waffle, two laffy taffies that I grabbed at the Sky Mart convenience store.

Loganberry shoe break in, day 5.  Five hours.  I plan to start running in them next week. 

For those of you with inquiring minds, "loganberry" is purple in Brooks-speak.  They came with purple laces and they were waaayyyy purple.  The lock laces are gray and tone the shoes down nicely.


I went to the arboretum (next door) at lunch today and took some pictures.  Butterflies and bees and spiders -- oh my!

Beaver Creek-Martha's Chapel-Carpenter Firestation

Nice ride. It was a lot less humid tonight than it was last night but a bit breezier. The lake was pretty choppy (for Jordan) when I was in that area.

I hate that the days are noticeably shorter.


√ Ride tonight!

Loganberry break in day 4 - four hours.  Yup, rockin' the running shoes with a skirt look for half a day!

I gave Kevin one last chance to have me not sign up for another 140.6.  I figured that since I am to the really tired phase of training for B2B, I would get an honest answer.  He said to go for it.  What a guy!

Two months until B2B!



Started to break in my new running shoes (Brooks Ghost 5 - loganberry).  Since getting the orthotics, it seems to be important to do an extended break in whereas before it was like, lace 'em up and go.  I'm wearing them for one hour today.


Took care of Hurricanes package and seat selection.  I wanted section 114 but Kevin wanted 113 so we went with 113 on the 114 side.
