This was a good run. After feeling really tired for the last few days I stayed up until 1am last night and felt great this morning...figure that out...? 

Hit my mileage goal for the week. The next four weeks have 20 mile runs in them...Ahhhh..!!

The weather was great with very low humidity and dew point. :-)

Nice training splits. Donít you just love this retirement stuff!

From Rhett on Fri, Jan 12, 2018 at 12:24:50 from 66.185.238.62

You already hit you mileage for the week and you still have tomorrow...nice. So how tall are you now that your legs have grown? :)

From Dan on Fri, Jan 12, 2018 at 23:37:45 from 74.140.172.126

As long as the legs are still even you should be okay. You really don't want one 6" inches longer than the other. Nice running!

From Tom K on Sat, Jan 13, 2018 at 07:33:20 from 73.27.120.162

20 miler? Go do it, man! Should be easier with your ginormous legs!

Are you going through another teenage growth spurt?

IJR - are you running The Woodlands Marathon in February '19 or 2018?
