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...

Up early because I was anticipating a sheet of ice. Luckily there was none. 12 hr day and then a harder treadmill run after the girls went down.

Not one of the most productive days I've had. Just a few minor hiccups but they were spaced just right to mess things up. Another treadmill run.

Just not feeling it tonight. A number of people have been sick at work. I do not feel sick but once on the treadmill I did not feel like running either...

Yet another 12 hr day. It is becoming the norm... After the girls went down went for a run. Hard to believe it was single digits on Tuesday. Start of run 50F, end of run 47F. About as perfect as you could ask for. Saw two deer and three other runners.

Just an insane week. Sun-Fri worked about 75 hr... Treadmill run just to not fall further behind in mileage.

Woke up an hour before my alarm at 4:20am. However, it was a pouring thunderstorm out. So I turned off my alarm and went back to sleep. A few hours later got up and the sky was clearing. Did breakfast and a few chores around the house. Then headed out hte door. It was perfectly clear and 60F!!! There was a bit of a breeze and a number of puddles but otherwise perfect. I had planned a 20-miler for a while now and decided to keep with that. About 8 miles in I heard footsteps and it was a guy catching me. He said he had just came around the corner a little back and we ran togeter. He ended up running with me until about 13 miles. It was nice have the conversation to make those middle miles go buy faster. I really started feeling it around 17 miles. More than I should have considering the pace. But with the week and general lack of training I'm not too surprised. Jumped into a bathtub of ice water after the run for 10 minutes and then continued with my day.
