Whew, it's been several days since I've been able to "blog". Sorry 'bout that. This time of year is insane.

I was the last leg of a relay team at the new Rochester Marathon. It was a fantastic experience. There were 5 "Penguin" teams and everyone on EVERY leg ran together as a team. It was amazing.

I'm planning to walk/run - as opposed to run/walk - the Chicago marathon with a friend. Our goal is to come in at about 6 to 6:30. I've now done a 3, 3 1/2, 4, and two 4 1/2 hour long runs leading up to the marathon. It's been a long time since I felt this well prepared.
So, it's taper time now. All the training is in the barn. It's been a great training season, but a long one!

Not really swimming, just "playing" in the pool some, trying to stay loose
