This was a good week for me. A few ups and downs being on the road in Georgia, but I mustered a good week. The tempo was a bit soft, but with a cold 18 mph wind I'll take the result. Saturday's long run was brutal the first 10 miles, but I rallied the last half and ran reasonably well. I stayed of the trails again based on a few muddy reports. Sunday turned out to be another impressive running day and the body responded well to the fair temps and sunshine. Leave late this coming Tuesday for a week in Arizona. I'll go to the if you ain't blastin' you ain't lastin' mode and enjoy whatever result this yields.
Christine and I discussed a few of our Top 10 all-time running moments. It was great hearing a few of her inside stories on some wins and what motivated her. My range is all over and also includes training runs and adventure runs. However, the one thing I always come back to is tying for first with my brother Bryan in the 1600m my senior year of HS. It was a dual meet (remember those) against Union. If I'm ever out on a run with you let me know and I'll give you my version.
