Last mid-distance run before Boston. I wasn't feeling that good and it was hot and humid too. The plan called for a 75% effort run at 13 miles so that's what I did. I simply leveled out to a consistant effort with a HR of about 145 and ran the miles. You can see my pace varies 30 seconds based on the terrain of the rolling hills. :-)

No run on Monday and just a couple more short/easy days left.

I believe Tom S, Hillbilly Runner, JG and Myself are all in Wave 2 - Corral 4. Tom K is in Wave 2 - Corral 1 (showoff!).

He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed.

Finally I'm starting to feel rested and ready to run! This morning the weather was great and the run was plesant. The plan called for 7 miles at a recovery pace so I ran at 75% effort again. I actually expected it to be a little faster with the cool weather and feeling good but it was actually slower than the 13 mile Sunday run when it was hot, humid and I felt bad. Oh well...?

Galatians 1:10 

For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.

So my wife tried to called the hotel we are supposed to be staying in (Howard Johnson Fenway Park) this morning and could not get through. Then she called the Howard Johnson main office. She was informed that thisHoward Johnson had been sold and they did not own the property any more and the conformation number we were given was no longer valid. AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

As I type this I am on hold with Marathon Hotel Guide (the company we made the reservation through) waiting for them to get back with me. They still had the conformation show as a good one. I'm not sure what we are going to do.

I am very anxious right now!

I did run easy today:

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Ran 7.35 miles today with 2 at Marathon Pace, the others I jogged and walked some.

I am so frustrated! I got a call from Howard Johnson Hotel management this morning to notify me that they were not able to find  a closer hotel, that they wouldn't be able to compensate me for the additional $75 per night room cost and they were "sorry" for the fact that they canceled my CONFIRMED room reservation without notifying me. Ahhhhh!!! I think they just wanted to irritate me more.

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
