Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...

Typical Sunday morning run. Up early to get done before the family wakes up. The weather was cool but nice. Good news is that even with the harder miles yesterday my knee wasn't more sore. Still the usual tightness but it seems like that is how it is going to be. Overall I just took it very easy. I don't want to push my luck and I want to focus more on maintaining "ok" mileage rather than speed at this point. Avg. 9:04 HR 128

Good to see you yesterday. It was a nice run for me! I think I saw Chad running with a group at one point also, not running in the race but crossing along the route.

Walter, Always good to see you as well. I was very encouraged by the run yesterday and think I'll be back in racing shape in the next couple of months. By fall you should be seeing a lot more of me.
