After a long string of 30+ mile weeks, I finished only 23.2 last week. Between starting a new job, getting my daughter to soccer practice, going to the dentist, and presenting at an STC meeting, I simply couldn't squeeze in the workouts. Oh well. I'll try to get back on track this week.
Christopher and I ran 12.2 in Umstead early Saturday morning. It was brutally hot and humid. We encountered Eric as we were heading out of the park and onto Trenton Road. I wanted to see how far it would be to run to work. Eric was training for the City of Oaks Marathon. The three of us ran together for about 5 miles, then he continued down Ebenezer while Christopher and I turned into my neighborhood. By the time Christopher and I finished, we felt as though we had sweat half our body weight. When is this heat going to end?
