      And the Energizer Bunny just keeps on truckin' on! Glad you felt better once you got warmed up. It's funny how different it can feel in the first few steps compared to how smooth you can feel by the end. You may consider a rest day or two soon. That's what you'd tell me...

      I was thinking I needed to rest the sore foot when I woke up. With the new orthotics I actually needed something just like this. It was funny jogging into places to do your errands. The conversation and company was nice AND it distracted me from the weirdness of having things in my shoes!

      Ya my goal is to always come as close to evenly splitting the first and second half of races. I'm usually the guy that starts slow and mows people down at the end when they are dying from going out too fast!

      Patagonia Capilene shirts wick moisture but retain it in the fabric (it's voodoo magic). Helps keep you cool. Black probably wasn't the right choice though since I have 4 other Patagonia Capilene shirts! That is what Ben wore at Badwater. They also have a 50 SPF block which is why everyone wore the long sleeve white version at Badwater.
