It will be her first marathon without me there (we did 10 together)... I wonder if that has occurred to her. Anyhoo, even though she hasn't blogged on BT since we broke up, I know she still lurks. Give her an inspire and wish her well today, the little Russian Rocket is going for a sub 3:10... Personally, I think she is under trained, but at NY last year she trained on 3 days a week and ran a 3:13 so I shouldn't doubt her. Not being there with her today is feels very strange to me.

I surprised myself by getting up early and meeting Tyra, Amy, Scott, Kenny and Rich for a run at Higline at midnight. Well, OK, actually it was 5:15 but it was dark! Although I was on time by my standards, it is not OK with this crew, they were already off and running by the time I got there. I caught up with everyone by mile 3 and chitchatted a bit before picking it up just a bit.

Its hard to believe that two weeks ago I covered this distance in 2:14. There was no way I could have ran that fast today. I was tired from the get go.

It feels good to get a 20 miler in before 8 AM.

Easy run... thought about existential things, mostly... my future, what I'm doing... why I run... where in the hell do I think I'm running to or running from... deep shit, man.

Dentist today... I may go trail running if I can get myself out of the house!!! I miss Lilia a little less. OH, this guy is so hot... that FACE! Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Nobody wants to go to the movies with me tonight... F*ck em' - I'm doing this mission solo.

Pretty quick run around was park twice and then back home... Some contender pushed the pace on me and I raced his footsteps for about 5.2 miles... Probably was moving pretty fast as I took it easy on the way home from the park.

New day, new month, new life... here I go. So yesterday I had the honor of meeting BT's world famous, Trixie. Fresh off the Tahoe Triple - 3 marathons in 3 days... WOW. Anyway, I'm happy to report that she is crazier than I expected! She had me laughing non stop and she doesn't even drink! The same can not be said of Dime and Regimom... We drank the 3 marg limit at the Rio, before heading down to the Sputnik where we hooked up with another BT crazy, Z-Dog, for some PBR's and general debauchery! It was fun.
