When I first started running with Neill, 5 miles was his longest run and 11:00 pace was pretty fast for him. Now he is below 10:00 and running a 9 mile long day. He has a Half Marathon in September two weeks after my Marathon. It is so much fun watching someone really push forward and, as my friend RunningToHerDreams would say, “run like a boss”.
So I sit here with “The Dog” and wait for the sun to rise to start my day. I must post a picture (my Lovely Wife insists on it 🙂 ) each week. This one was actually from yesterday after my (not so good) run while throwing “The Dog” “The Stick” in the back yard. The stick is in the upper left corner of the picture. She is so intent on that stick… Sort of like me at the start of a 5K (ha!).
Have a great weekend and, as my Lovely Wife says to me everyday before I leave for my run:
“Run fast, don’t get hurt, have a good run”.
Tomorrow – the last long run day before my marathon…
