Back in the good old USA. Ran this morning and it felt good. Took DerHammer's advice and slowed down a little. Hopefully I'll soon be back on a running schedule just in time for the running season!

Another good run. Not too fast but everything is comfortable. Hopefully I can build up and be ready for the Chosen Marathon for Adoption in four weeks.

29.5 on the road bike @ 18.5 mph. The roads were wet so I went a little slower than normal.
