This was a nice Training Run for me. As you know I planned to run the Full Marathon but backed out that and dropped down to the Half. As usual the weatherman was wrong...the temperature was even hotter than he had predicted.

At the first of the race I decided to go ahead and run a fair Half Marathon pace for the first few miles and see how I felt. After first two miles I knew I wouldn't be able to hold that pace. As you can see by my HR the effort was there but nothing more could be done without blowing up or destroying my body in an effort to run a few minutes faster.

Since I didn't burn myself out on this race my plan is to try and run the BCS (Bryan College Station) Marathon on December 8th. I'm going to continue to train until then and if the weater is good I'll enter at the last minute.

The Rock-n-Roll Marathon/and Half was a huge event with 26,000 runners altogether. I was a little unimpressed with the production. I though it would be a little more hyped up.

I ended up 160th out of 14,427 runners and 10th in my age group out of 524 runners. Apparently everyone was having difficulty in the heat. :-)

The best thing about the race was that I got to spend the day with my daughter (Callie). She ran her second Half Marathon and PR'd by over 2 minutes. That was a fun thing to see and be a part of.

And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

So I have been out of town on business again (Florida) but now I'm back. Today I just added some miles without a real plan. It's still pretty hot and humid but the temperature is dropping tomorrow and we will see some pretty cold nights for the next few days.

Feeling fine after my race on Sunday. My plan is to consider the BCS (Brian College Station) Full Marathon on December 8th if the weather is good.

1 Corinthians 1:4-5 

I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge

Cold weather has hit. It was very windy and rainy this morning so I went to the Gym.

9 easy miles @ the Gym.

Song of Songs 4:16

Awake, north wind,and come, south wind! 

Blow on my garden, that its fragrance may spread everywhere.
Let my beloved come into his garden and taste its choice fruits.

Nice cold weather this morning. I was able to bundle up enough to keep my hands and feet warm. I was hoping to run 20 miles but I didn't start early enough so I had to settle for 18.

The temperature was 37, 81% humidity and 34 degree dewpoint.

My plan was for 6 @ 8:15, 6 @ 8:00 and then 6 @ 7:45. I haven't added up the actuals but I think they are all pretty close, maybe the last 6 was a little faster.

Over 60 miles for the week with a Half Marathon to start it off last Sunday. :-)
