I've been a bad RBF lately. It's been crazy, as usual. Ellie and I moved out of our house (we sold it...we weren't evicted or anything :) ) and are looking to move up to the town I'm now practicing in, but we're currently living in a pretty cool apartment that barely receives the internet from a nearby house. I'm also covering the entire caseload at work as the other doctor is on a 2 week Safari (with his bow and arrow...literally) in Africa. Crazy, for sure. Oh yeah, also, in the process of moving I lost my cell phone. That was great too.
Today I put together a nice 27 mile training run. Now that's an odd sentence to write, but it comes with the territory when the goal for the fall is to finish a 50 miler. It went well today...up until about mile 26.5 when I really needed to find a restroom. Other than that, my combination of nuun, Clif Shot Bloks, Gummy Bears, a little Gatorade, and a lot of ice water is working really well.
Looking ahead, I'm excited to see what I'm made of. It's going to be a crazy(crazier) month, so bring it on!
This weekend I'm flying to St. Louis for the Lewis & Clark Marathon on Sunday as my final "training run" before the real runs start in a week. Be sure to check back for some pictures and reports on the weekend's running!
I'm going to keep this post brief, as the wireless connection is spotty at best. In closing, I have to say WAY TO GO!!! to Keith, Adam, Helen, and Wynn for their amazing efforts this past weekend at the Superior races. Just reading about the festivities up there make it a must see and must do for me at some point. And along those lines, my deepest and most sincere condolences to Adam (can you tell by his webpage colors what football team he supports) as he recovers from the beatdown Aaron Rodgers and the Pack provided on Monday.
