Brisk walk all around Lake Sammamish with Patty. She just moved her from Washington DC and is loving our area so far. I was supposed to meet someone for a free fitness consultation, but she didn't show up. I might have to consider requiring a $10 deposit that can be applied to a service because this is the second time I've had to drive to Seattle for a consultation that has either been canceled last minute, or is a no show. I did talk with her online, though, and I think she just got a little scared. No biggie, but I'd rather have been home with my honey and my dogs than sitting in Starbucks waiting for someone to show. (Plus I had to pay for parking!)

I wrote my race report!

Ran with Wiley for the first time. He did REALLY well! Stayed with me, or just ahead. He only pulled a few times to see other dogs, but I think I can train him out of that pretty quickly. He got to see some kids, although when a bunch of them wanted to pet him all at once he yipped.

Slowed down at the end to take a phone call, otherwise the pace wasn't FAST, but it was fine.

Slow jog with Linda. Legs were a little more tired today, but no real pain. I stopped at 4 because I could feel my knees tweaking.

Race report pending!

Ran to the chiropractor after work then to Starbucks. My legs felt GREAT! No more Asics for me. My Brooks are MUCH more comfortable, even with almost 700 miles on them.

Rest day...really, a travel day!

We walked and walked and walked and WALKED all over Chicago today, and dammit...I'm counting it! I did even do a little running along Lakeshore Drive because you HAVE to run along Lakeshore!

Wonderful amazing day with my honey in a fantastic town. I love Chicago!

Chicago Marathon! Race report pending.

It was hot and my feet and knees were hurting from at least the halfway point, hence the slow time. I think this is the first time I've finished and not felt really happy with my performance. I had TONS of energy left (we even walked all over Chicago afterwards and visited the Sears Tower), but I just could NOT get my legs to cooperate and go any faster!

My HR actually is about 10 beats higher on avg than normal, so I'm sure that was part of it and probably due to the heat.

Oh well. It's a blessing to be able to do it.
