Here's the details:

I met a guy (Gene Johnson) at the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving day in Gruene. He is my age and ran a little ways behind me in the race. After the race he came and asked the usual questions and we compared running notes. Come to find out he is a seasoned marathoner and actually ran Boston last year. He took my phone number with the intent to call and coordinate a run with me. Saturday evening he called and I accepted his invitation to come to New Braunfels and run a long run with him. His goal was 18 miles at about the same pace as me. I was planning to run 20 but said 18 would be good.

I met up with him at 6:30. It was plenty warm and humid. We exchanged plesantries and then took off. I think his running style is very even paced where mine is typically more like running fartleks. :-) The course was very hilly, for me, with several elevation changes of 100, 200, 300 feet. I had to walk some of the hills while he just plodded along up all the hills. He stoped three times for water and restroom breaks but I would contine to run circles while I waited on him. (This is where I gained and additional mile.) We did stop at a convienence store but I didn't stop my watch but run in, got some water and continued running circles outside (8:42 mile) while he bought and drank some gatorade.

All in all the run was okay. I didn't feel great from start to finish but based on the course and training level I'm pretty pleased. 

Hopefully Gene will ask me to come run again with him. :-)

This felt good! (except for the foot)

Really felt strong on this run. As you can see I really picked up the pace for the last 3 miles...not like I could do that for long but it was good to have the energy and strength to know that I could do it.
