June 23

I’m not tracking to a certain date, so it doesn’t make sense to do a countdown. And I’m not great at coming up with witty titles.

My arm workout felt great, but as the day wore on I started dreading my run. Speedwork is hard! But I set to it, and it actually went well. I was close to a tenth of a mile for my sprints, so about a 6mm pace. But I know the drill, if I want to do big races, I need to train!

Michael furthered sweetened the deal re: Goofy today. Marshall Ulrich was in Seattle for the marathon, signing and selling his book “Running on Empty”. I’d mentioned it to Michael the other day, and sure enough I just got an mms of an autographed book! How can I not make an effort to go run a race with a great friend like that?? 🙂
