    good Boulder Dash 10K, Cumming GA 6.22 mi 00:54 08:38 pace

      the lack of water on the course is just plain crazy. I think the race director should be hiding. Excellent job in the heat, Bill.

    Might have made a 3 mile warm up, but ran (!) into some friends and we stopped to talk. But 2.5 miles was a good loosening up, followed by some stretching.

      Ah ha ha ha!!!!! Given that I did get lost in all of the stairwells of our 800 bed hospital, on Thursday, I so can relate to your dream. Best of everything for tomorrow. I am sure... that the race will NOT start in a stairwell!

      I remember wading in the creek when we were kids and having the crawfish attack & pinch our toes. I always think of that when we dine crawfish cuisine - payback is priceless. Nice job on the 4 miler, Bill

      Glad your hip shakeout is working. I do admit I get a kick out of running faster than the line of cars too. Later being in it, not so much.

    Beautiful morning on the greenway, but my legs were shot and this was a struggle. I had to wrap it up -mercifully - and get on with the day. May give this another try late in the day.

      Losing track of distance is a good sign, even if it is not optimal race prep. Hope the race goes well!

      Back before I was a runner and could appreciate it, I lived just a block away from a golf course, though private/gated, there was a woodchip path that surrounded the entire course and that was available to the public. Always nice to find a place in the city with lots of green to look at
