      Meh. Ragnar was a month later last year, and I was also coming back from an injury, and I ran a LOT faster. Probably had 5-6 more weeks of training, though, in 2013. But I was also out longer (4.5 months for sfx vs. 2.5 for the knee.)

      Except within an hour of getting home I had to go to the ER with Susanna. 5 head staples later, I finally was in bed at midnight. ;)

    Ragnar Leg 24 - Barnesville M... 11.1 mi 01:38 08:49 pace

    Ragnar's weird calculation estimated that I would finish this leg in 1:24, which is like a 7:30 pace. I have no idea where they got that idea from, since I estimated my current 10k pace to b... read more

    I asked Tuan if he wanted to run 12-14 miles with me. He said "Sure, pace isn't important. Let's keep it at an easy 8:30." I said "I think 8:30 is more of a tempo run fo... read more

      1) I can't believe you're already running 8 miles. Seriously. 2) I thought about you this morning. I tripped over my own feet TWICE as I ran and thought, "If I actually fall, nobody is going to believe I did this." So, you may have actually saved me from falling. Thanks :-) 3) How are you feeling today? I guess that would be the important one.
