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...

Well I'm still feeling pretty good after last week. I got up early to take care of the girls while Sandra actually got some sleep. Then I took Kaitlyn for a run around SH before going to a blessing for one of our friend's daughters.

Knee was a little tight today. However, two days after a "long" run I'm not too surprised. I may back off a little more this week again before going for the 40s. My run was a little late after a long day and that may have played into it.

Extended commute run. It was still a little windy this morning but luckily I was headed into work with the wind. Last night was more rough. Knee still pretty tight and I took the run this morning VERY slow. After I set up some stuff around lab I'm going to stretch a little extra.

Knee about the same. Overall a good day though. Work was slow but I started off the day with news that both of my abstracts were accepted, so I will be heading back to New Orleans. This time to give both a talk and poster presentation at the American Diabetes Association annual meeting.

Kristen has been sleeping better and that has been helping a lot. The weather is crazy in that it was nearly 60 yesterday and there were probably 2-3 in of snow on the ground this morning. However, the run into work was much better than the run last night. Cold is better than freezing rain. Knee still a little achy. I just don't get what it wants...

Sleep was a little more interrupted than the last few nights, but still not too bad.
I got into work extra early to set up a few things. Then went for my run. My knee was feeling the best it has all week and I was tempted to add a few miles but stuck to my initial plan. I actually ended up running past Chad's house but no sightings...

Well Saturdays pay off again. I ended up sleeping in and totaled a little over 7hrs hours. It felt good. There were two wake-ups but neither were much. Last Sat I planned to run 7 days of 5 mi/d this week or if I was feeling good to run 10 on Sat to get my first 40 since STG. Well the majority of the week was rough but the last few days I've felt better. Kaitlyn asked me to take her on a run so I decided to go for the full distance. I think it was also her longest run with me. She did great the whole time and never got restless. Pushing the stroller for 10 miles wasn't too bad either. My knee of course is tight but I was expecting something.
