Wow. In the last eight weeks, I've run a total of 74 miles. (I love spreadsheets!) That's about 9.25 miles a week. It's also probably about 9.2 miles a week more than my average for the preceding five years. Today was awful, though. I ran the full Peachtree distance of 6.3 miles for the first time. It was warm, and very humid, and my pace was over 8 minute miles for the first time in four weeks - way over. There is nothing pleasant about running (yet) — the pleasant part is having run. And let me tell you, that feels darn good!
In other news, if you're a friend of mine and wondering whether I've dropped off the face of the earth, I apologize. I have been out of contact with just about everyone I should have been writing, calling, and spending time with. I promise to start chasing you down in the next couple of weeks, okay?
