I was going to wait until tomorrow to get back to it, but the temperatures dropped 5 degrees overnight. You take what you can get around here. Besides I felt good enough to run by Wednesday. Maybe I should have resumed running sooner! Sat, 13 Oct 2018 06:00:00 Sun, Oct 07, 2018 <p>Towpath Marathon. Marathon #12. Unbelievable beautiful course. I tried to take as much of it in while I was out there. It was very hot and humid. 79 deg., 74% hum., 70 d.p. at finish. Pancake flat, just like home. Certainly above local averages for race day. I knew it wasn&#39;t going to be a great race for me, but I gave it my best shot. It was a great trip.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Sun, 07 Oct 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Oct 05, 2018 <p>3.5 miles. hood route. 76 deg. 99% hum. 75 dew point.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 05 Oct 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Oct 03, 2018 3.5 miles.

It was slightly cooler, with a breeze, and no dead fish stink. We still have big humidity, big dew point, and I came&nbsp;home soaked. But this was a bit better than &quot;awful&quot; conditions, so I&#39;m trying to be positive. The local news this weekend made a big deal about September 2018 being the hottest on record.&nbsp;</p> <p>Race day starting time weather is projected to be 66 deg., 89% hum., and 63 dew point.&nbsp; And since I make it rain everywhere I go, storms are projected to start at noon. I received my shirt and bib in the mail Saturday, since I wont be in town long enough to pick them up before the race. Pretty cool stuff. Like out of nowhere I&#39;m getting excited about this race again.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 01 Oct 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 29, 2018 1.5 miles. Then Bathroom stop. Then 10.2 miles. 100% hum. 75 d.p.

Tommy spent the majority of last season on the bench.&nbsp;Tommy got the goal.&nbsp;The goal ricocheted off of 2 defenders before going in. I don&#39;t usually think about divine intervention, but this was one of those moments. The whole thing playing out like it did was really unbelieveable.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 22 Sep 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 21, 2018 <p>3.5 miles. hood route. 6 am start. I took the last couple of days off because I thought I&nbsp;was injured. My left hip / thigh really hurts when I run. And still does.</p> <p>I tell my coworkers about this and they laugh hysterically. They say &quot;You say the same&nbsp;things before every race!&quot;</p> <p>Yeah, but this time I&nbsp;mean it. I&#39;m going to do terrible.</p> <p>They say sure, sure.</p> <p>No, really.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 21 Sep 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 18, 2018 <p>7.5 miles.

They had the rowing regatta in the ICW, so there was at least something to look at. Then home and then immediately to Tommy&#39;s soccer game. We won 4-0. Tommy got an assist on goal 2. Then Tommy scored his first goal for the travel team for the 3rd goal. I may have yelled a bit too loud. I&#39;ve been waiting for this for a year and a half! Then celebration ice cream and lunch. Then basketball for an hour with john. The heat was incredible. Then I took the boys to the driving range. Then swimming. I&#39;m gassed.</p> Sat, 15 Sep 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 13, 2018 7.5 miles.
