Get under 3 hours one more time...
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...
Another late night with one more to come. But I wanted to get in some downtime. Did a family outing and then after dinner run.

Problem with late nights, is when you can't sleep in because of something. Crisp out this morning. Run with Josh.

No run, too much work. This month is already off to a tough start...
Just exhausted from last night. Slept through alarm... No run but did have fun family day for spring break in Atlanta.
Had every intent of coming home eary with all the late work nights. But it didn't work out for me. So bagged yet another run. Did have a good guys night out with the nighbors. 10 of us total.
Family run (1.25 mi) then 3rd Easter egg hunt of the season followed by a long run in very nice weather.
