I LOVE WIND. I hope it stays windy forever... Please wind... blow harder...

Weighed in this morning... not something I do very often... I am a little heavy, but my body fat is pretty good. I have been eating poorly lately... lots of junk. I need to check myself for the next 9 days and hopefully drop a couple of pounds... YIKES

Ran the 1st half of the Colorado Marathon course for the second time! Head winds again, but hopefully this will help me with a psychological advantage on race day if there are no winds at 6 AM.

I ran pretty well but I am pretty fatigued overall.

2. 6:32
3. 6:44
4. 6:35
5. 6:39
6. 6:38

8. 6:36
9. 6:36

11. 6:42
12. 6:40
13. 6:41

My split for 13.1 miles was 1:26:43 which is a bit slower than my projected race pace, but there was a lot of wind, it was warm (2pm run), and I am not recovered from my training yet. Overall a good effort

No PR in those winds, but I know I ran well... I beat a great duathlete - Dean Maruna - by about 30 seconds - so I know it was a tough day out there...

Lots of fast runners and a large field. why are there so many fast old guys? 5 of the top 10 over 40. Man, only in Boulder
