It was 64 degrees and very windy this morning.  I ran 4.5 miles before our group run including a run up Satterfield hill.  I ran another 3 with the group, mostly with Jedd.  Then I ran a 1/2 mile with Barry before finishing on my own.  Total 10.15 miles.

No run this morning.  I was up late because a car ran in to the dining room of one of my restaurants at 10:00pm last night.  I was on the phone a lot and then couldn't sleep.

It was 57 degrees when I started this morning.  I got a lot hotter as time went on.  I ran the Bone and Back 40-mile ultra today but was just wiped-out after the week I have had.  Because I was tired my form was bad today and my groin injury started flaring up.  I didn't want to cause further injury so I pulled after 23.26 miles.
