My Morning Run. Legs? What legs?

Today's run was a shorty on the Panther Trail. This is view is looking north near the northwest corner of the trail. I ran 4 miles on the trail on Monday and my legs were tired. I took yesterday off and they're still tired. I've yet to complete my last long run in preparation for the Utah Valley Marathon on June 8th. I may have to count the marathon as my final long training run.

My Morning Run, Love The Month of May!

Darn power lines.

It's nice to see pretty things along the way and if it isn't my wife, it might as well be these.

I don't know which got me; the miles ) it was really 18 miles) or the heat (first +70 degree run of the year).

0h, I'm going to be satisfied tomorrow!

My Morning Run, Goose, Goose

I tried very hard not to disrupt their FHE as I ran by.

Both parents made sure I kept moving.

My Morning Run, Yucky Run

EIU Soccer Field.
Cold symptoms + tired legs = yucky run. But, it's done!

My Morning Run, Deader Skunk

On the trail (and streets) again with a goal of 16 miles.

This dead skunk I saw on the trail last week is even deader this week.

A little over 1 mile to go. EIU's Old Main and Domino Pizza, just a reminder that universities are being run more and more like businesses. And, that's not a good thing. Ironically, the Domino's in Charleston went out of business. 
Speaking of local business, my favorite post-long run meal is currently a #3 sandwich and a bag of Thinny Chips from Jimmy John's.

My Morning Run, Wanna Fight?

Down and then up into Forest Hills. If I had an M.D. behind my name we'd live up there. 

The forgotten bridge.

Sometimes you have to stop and "smell the roses".

About to descend Bedroom Wall.

New turf and track at O'Brian Stadium. 

"Wanna fight?", said the mini-lobster.

CRAYFISH: Stop! Who would jog along the Panther Trail must 
answer me these questions three, 'ere the other side he see.
JAKE: Ask me the questions, sir crayfish. I'm not afraid.
CRAYFISH: What is your motto?
JAKE: My motto is Run Slow, Ski Fast.
CRAYFISH: What is your quest?
JAKE: To run a marathon.
CRAYFISH: What is your favorite color?
JAKE: Blue.
CRAYFISH: Right. Off you go.
JAKE: Oh, thank you. Thank you very much.
