Running Status

The 18 miler went well. My time was close to last years, but I felt like I finished strong.

The 20 miler started well. Gary ran with me for about the first 9 miles, which really helped. He and Jason Neuwirth really went out of their way to help Terry and I in our training for the day.

I ran well for 17.5, then hit a wall. I walked for a half mile, then finished running. I'm excited for San Diego, but nervous as well. Will the change in altitude offset the change in humidity?

I've been using Gu for my gel, which seems to work ok. I'm also taking orange slices to help the Gu settle in and not make me sick.

This weeks running has been very hard. I don't think I've fully recovered from the 20 miler.
