Get under 3 hours one more time...
Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...
Took most of today off. The weather was perfect and went to the zoo with the family after church. Then worked a few hours prior to a late night run with two friends from church.
Good work day finished by a nice cool run.
Another productive day. Wish they could all be this focused. Then late evening run with two friends from church.
Rare run with Sandra. Did the Mountain Brook course. Nice climbs in that one...
Avg. 8:33 (identical to last night)
Honestly can't remember about this run. Writing entry a week late. At least the Garmin can remember the distance and pace for me :)
What I can, when I can. Got to run with my wife again today.
From 20-miler to goose egg. The work push really begins today. Finish line Oct 8th...
