Mainly marathons and ultras. I now have 30 marathons and counting under my belt. I'd like to post another sub-3 hour marathon soon, But I'm pretty pleased with how well I have been running lately.

Going under 3 hours in the marathon again in 2013 and taking as many of my training partners with me as I can!

Maybe this run fell to pieces as the result of getting up later than expected. It's likely to be a subject of debate tonight as to whether or not the alarm wasn't properly set or whether I rolled over and went back to sleep, but either way, that's highly unusual behavior for me and Sally both. She always sets the alarm for me and I always get up when it goes off. I swear I never heard it but I'll bet she'll swear she set it.
Anyway, I woke up 15 minutes later than usual and wasted no time getting out the door. It was an absolutely gorgeous morning, one of the most perfect running days imaginable, and unfortunately, I was about to miss out on most of the opportunity to take full advantage of it. I was making up for lost time and progressing quite well...and then it hit me! "It" being the operative word for "the price of bananas" or "The Call of the Wild"!
At roughly the 1.5 mile mark, I was literally in no man's land. Too far from home and too far to the nearest blockhouse. The only option was to turn for home. I made it. Barely. But I made it. And that was the end of any more mileage for the day.
So, there it is. 3.2 miles. Hardly my normal Monday output. And with one school having 8th grade graduation tonight, this likely is all she wrote for today.
And with my other school having 8th grade graduation tomorrow night, it looks like Tuesday morning speed work is definitely on. To Matt, Patrick, Mike S., and any of the Tuesday morning regulars who might read this, I'm thinking Lobster Rolls tomorrow morning? What say ye?
Happy Monday everyone. May the road rise up to meet you and may you find the price of bananas comfortably affordable!
