PM: 4.5 very easy it was more of a running date with my wife than a work out (no kids tonight staying with their uncle) the 2 dogs came along.She did her first double run in one day.Love it.

I just ran the most miles in one week ever. By the end of next week I will find out if my body is built for this level or not. Love all the support I'm getting from all the pros, thanx a lot.

  • 18 miles at the lake trail. felt out of energy the last 3 miles. need to bring more than water next time. The weather was perfect(mid 40s) so I cant blame it  on that. the family came out for a short time that's always help. some one stoped me on the trail and said since you are here all the time did you see my gloves I lost 2 days. I gus I run alot!!!!
