Out to the river Bottoms from the house. I rally struggled on this one. No energy and I really crashed the last 3 miles. The last few miles I had to run-walk them... Oh well at least a didn't give up and Call Cindie to come and get me. I'm not to sure how this run helps at all as I feel it was pretty damn unproductive.

See you Monday.
