PM - 10 miles moderate to MP. Last 5 miles were at MP - definitely have something going on with the left hip - so trying to keep workouts reasonable from now until the race.

PM - really long day. Up at 4:30, travel to ATL, meetings all day then straight into a work dinner; got into my hotel at 9:30 pm, basically just went out for 4 miles just to avoid a zero.

No official run, but easily walked over 4-5 miles around the city of Rome - sightseeing etc. for several hours after arriving early this morning.

AM - ran over to Riley's apartment near the Vatican and then she took me on a little tour/run around the neighborhoods where she goes to school and where she hangs out with her friends etc.  Nice run along the Tiber River and then back from her place.
