I had originally planned to only run 6 this morning but I was feeling pretty good so I went 8. Not much soreness after the marathon, just a bit of tightness/soreness in the hammies.  I think both Kim & I should be good to go for SGM and a BQ for Kim.

Later to the gym for 30 min XT + core.

Did our final Payson canyon downhill run in the early morning hours for likely the last time this year.  Getting a bit nippy at the top of the mountain and pitch black with no moon, but what an amazing clear sky - the stars were amazing!

Not as many running today as earlier weeks.  Kim and I ran with the group for a bit mostly with Doc Ludlow then also some solo miles. Legs feeling great I didn't notice any lingering marathon aches/pains whatsover.  I quite enjoyed the run.

Nice 8 miler mostly with Kimi. Went out a little later than usual to get a little sunshine. Gotta love autumn.

Up bright and early for our last sorta long run to kick off taper time heading into SGM. Lots of runners out today, a bit nippy around the fields but usually near perfect for running.
