This was the last day I got to run with Callie. She had a 12 mile run.

My HR was nice and low for all the miles I ran with her and rose expectantly on the three faster miles.

Came within about 6" of stepping on the happy and very alive owner of these nice little rattles this morning while running!

I Stopped and hit him with a rock and that's when he came at me with his fangs snapping. I picked up a stick and let him have it... then accepted my prize. :-)

Well, it doesn't look like I'm going to make it to the BCS marathon this weekend. I'm afraid the weather is going to be too cold and rainy. I'm a little disappointed since I've been training since early July to run a marathon. I felt like I might really be ready to set the bar much higher with a really fast PR. The good thing is that I've gone through all of this training without any health issues so hopefully I can jump into my Boston training with a very good base.

Today's run was .... well, just a run.
