    Two weeks out. Hoped to cover 10 today, but stopped at 9 because I ran back towards home to pee. Going to do at least 10 next week, hopefully 11 to get ready for the half.

      Thanks everyone. Marie, I'm running the NYC half on Sunday. Set for the Brooklyn one in May too. Might do the LI as a trial run since it's two weeks before Brooklyn. And I can guilt my parents int coming to watch and then get brunch at LL Dents across from the mall after. Chicken and waffles. Mmmmmm.

      Good job either way Michael. Hope we can get outside this weekend.
      I have found that watching movies on Netflix, no commercials, works for long TM runs. Even with a show or sporting event the commercials make my mind wonder like yours was. Keep up the hard work.

      Yep... The Only way to run long miles on a TM is by listening to or watching something that keeps you entertained! I so relate!
