AM- 61º Highs of 80's yesterday and today. Work is draining me and the house is full of strep throat.... but hey- seriosuly life is good. I was thinkining on Today's run of how many things we have been blessed with alone. Just to be able to run 10 miles on a Wednesday morning is so nice, even if I have lead legs. Marathon Saturday. I need to see when Yasir is hitting the expo Friday.

Great weather for a Marathon. 37 at the start, but little wind. Unlike my friend Yasir, I love the colder conditions. 42-44 is probably my ideal temp. I was happy to meet Yasir at the expo and then again between Miles 18-19. He is very kind and ran a great race! You were right Tom, Yasir beat me :) 

I made the decision to run off feel. I did not check my watch once until mile 26. I figured with a rougher training cycle, a body that never fully recovered from the illness and a house full of strep throat - it was best to approach it that way. 

The marathon is a great one to run. The only complaint is they start the half marathon runners with the full and with the race getting bigger.... well too much weaving for the first few miles. You actually have people walking. Overall though, a great race that I am sure will be on the list again. Splits with no watch check? 8:01, 7:34, 7:39, 7:28, 7:31, 7:25, 7:30, 7:47, 7:43, 7:39, 7:41, 7:53, 7:47, 7:43, 7:56, 8:10, 8:05, 8:22, 7:52, 8:06, 8:44, 8:54, 8:44, 8:34, 8:56, 8:17 and add .21.

 Not my best race obviously, but best this year so I will build off that and back to the drawing board.

73º heat wave! I was not amused. 9 Miles w/13x20s striders. Legs just did not have much spark in them today. I suppose we all have that. Really gearing up for my Thursday Marathon or turkey goodness.

AM- 33º/24ºWC, Mix of rain/sleet/rail on and off with a stout wind most the run. Welcome to Ohio. Only a 40º drop in one day :) My legs are still tired, but good all the same. 3 MP miles trying to keep my legs honest.

4 Miles - rainy, 47º

HILLS- the pics probably do not do it justice, but they are 15-22% pitch. Good workout. 

However, I placed 1st in the Turkey Eating Marathon. I started and finished strong. Plus I added the PieCaken! Yes I made this awesome dessert. Pie baked inside a cake. :) 

Blueberry pie baked inside the cake. I do like to cook!
