Just Mostly Dead at Mile 11, Not All Dead.

Between miles 5 and 7, and before acute neuromuscular failure kicked in, I felt a strong urge to run The Top of Utah Marathon on September 19. I figured if I really trained and pushed my self I might have a chance of breaking 4 hours...or maybe not. My PR is at 4:07 but I had Ben pacing me. I'll have to check on airfare before I can know for sure. 

What got me going at the end of my run? A nice downhill stretch along with Chris Isaak's cover of I Want You To Want Me. Time for some Powerade and banana bread.

Potential Marathon List

I'd like to be running the Ogden Marathon or the Berryman Trail Marathon this Saturday but neither work out so limiting my self to marathons that are within driving distance from Charleston or could be part of a trip to Utah and are not on Sunday, here's my list of what I'm looking at for the rest of the year. 
Any other suggestions?

May 9th's run

I ran my own 10k today rather the half-marathon that SBLHC sponsored. Upon completion I was congratulated by Lance Armstrong (via Nike+ system) for completing a strong run and burning a lot of calories. Thanks, Lance.

Here's one of the random thoughts that popped into my head while running: I'd rather run Saturday mornings and hopefully live a longer life than drive around town shopping garage sales to live a life surrounded by more junk.

Saturday morning run - May 2nd

8:00 Helped Dave B move a few things to his new apartment.
9:30 Visited Darryl G in the hospital.
11:00 Went for a run. The graph is a very distorted. The slowdowns are hills and/or old age. Still thinking about another marathon before summer.
