4am wake up call for our longest training run of the season before Oklahoma-- 20 miles!!!
On the Course
Water stop #2
3 cheers for DRC coordinated water stops!!! When you're spending up to 3-4 hours a weekend running all over Dallas, these orange DRC coolers of water and Gatorade are a very welcome sight that springs up every few miles or so.

A very sore, hungry and happy gang...
Overall today's training run was great!! I was really relieved to have this one feel so good because I wasn't feeling well most of the week. This was the first run I tried taking Tylenol pre-run and mid-way through and I think I'm a believer in that strategy now. I've been having some problems with joint pains and swelling, which I got the good news from my doctor is okay to run on so long as I can manage it.
Now I am finally home, full of pizza, and looking foward to an ice bath, a hot
shower, and a NAP!
Thanks to everyone who was a part of such a great run today, and to all of
you mile sponsors making donations for Susan's foundation. There are
10 more miles to fill before the Oklahoma marathon in just 21 days. I know we can
do it!! :)
According to my training calculator I've run almost 267 miles since
the start of the training season in January. Surely that's worth a $50
donation for a good cause, isn't it? :) Can I interest anyone in mile 19? After a long, hard morning of running that would be a great mile to have sponsored next. Any takers? :)
Have a great weekend everyone!
