20 hour day! Up early for work. Long run after dinner and then up late until work was done, sometime after 1AM. At least I got the run in.

Wow, how'd a whole week slip by. Working like a crazy person. Four symposiums (two out of state) and a grant all in 12 days. And that is what starts tomorrow. I've actually still been running but fell off the mileage. Had a nice cooler run tonight. Saw one deer and a ton of people out walking. The first 12 miles I took very easy but hammered the final mile in a 5:35.6, one of my fastest miles in a very long time.

Similar run to last night but the final mile was as fast, still sub-6 though which makes this the fastest month for me in a long time...

Lexington, KY running. Wild Cats were playing during my run so the streets were dead.
