A couple days ago in a dream I saw my old childhood friend...Butch Boughter. In the dream we were adults and it has been probably close to 35 years since I have seen Butch. My brother Bryan was there along side me. The first thing I say to Butch is, "OF THE MOTTO!" Then, without any hesitation Butch goes into the drill..."OOooofffFFF....ttthhhheeeee MOTTO!" It was so hilarious I called my brother and we howled about it. Ask me sometime and I will tell you the rest of the story.

Wed: 7.1 easy (10:29) Lapham/Ice Age w/ Bero
Fri: 4.0 w/ 1.0 in 6:35
Sat: 7.5 total, 1.75 w/u (8:22), 4.0 (6:52, 6:38, 6:36, 6:15), 1.75 c/d (8:24).
Trying not to eat myself to 180 pounds. If I am 175 at the starting line that is a major victory. Feeling pretty solid. Thinking 1:36 for first half and then go from there. That is 7:19 pace and under normal conditions I would probably go faster, but I have a feeling the cool/windy and possible wet weather may make this realistic. I will run in my Adidas Drop Zeroes or whatever label they had when I bought them a few years back, I just know they are lighter. All that is left at this point is a few light runs, a couple faster paced miles, and a good attitude.
