Great weather today, which made for a nice run. 2 miles easy to warm up, then to the track for my last speed workout. I did 6x400 with a 400m jog between each. My times were all over the place, but my average was 71, which I'll take. Finished with 1 mile barefoot on the grass and then 1 mile home.

50 degrees at 7 am! It's a heatwave! Nice for a training run, but I hope it's nothing like this in Lincoln--the weather report right now is saying rain and temps in the high 30's at the start. Sweet!

Finals week with school.  Good that I'm nearly done, bad that I spend too much time studying and bad that it creates stress the final 5 days before a race.  No time for a run today.  Hopefully tomorrow.

3 miles easy, 1 of which was barefoot. I feel a bit sluggish today.....dare I say, even a little sick. I never get sick. Maybe once every 3 years, so if I'm coming down with something 3 days before my second marathon, I'm going to be ticked. Early to bed tonight to get as much sleep as possible before flying tomorrow. Now that finals are over, I'm starting to get excited!

No run today--traveled to Lincoln, Nebraska via St. George, Salt Lake City, Omaha and finally Lincoln. Long day, but we made it. The weather is all sorts of nasty right now, but it's looking up for Sunday. Actually, near perfect with the temp at 7:00: 36 degrees. Now if the wind stops I'll be happy as can be. I'll drive the course in the morning and hatch a gameplan....

Woke up at 5:00 (4:00 Utah) and couldn't sleep anymore. Went for a 2 mile jog to see the starting line and first part of the course. The wind was rough and very cold. Hope it dies down soon....
