Today was the best run I had all year. 12 miles with my dog Oakley. no music no watch no phone just me and my dog in the woods. Yes we stoped and used nature's poter party (we need spelling check), but it was alot of fun. We ran into a High school track team doing their workout on the trails they were kool enough not to call me sir they just said hi and said good job guys. they had one female athelte on the team and she was on the leading pack (u go girl). Mile 9 we stoped for oakly (my dog) to get a break and another nature break and swim for a little bet (he is a yellow lab u know so swiming not running for him). I spent that time doing some running drills(non runners at the park were wondering what is wrong with this guy). Thanx to this blog and all the awesom runners like I just run, Allie, and of course sasha and jake for thier advice and encouragement Im running 70-80 mile a week and geting faster every day.
2 easy miles and 4 miles marathon pace felt good.
