Dutchie I go running in the early morning, before my brain figures out what I'm up to.

I think I'm finally back to "normal," whatever that means, after 4 1/2 months! No pain anywhere when I run...

One more thing, Trey.
In your race, after a couple of miles you will be warmed up and will have so much pent-up energy and feel so good that you will be tempted to pick up the pace. Don't do it--stick with your plan, stick with your pace. If you still have that extra energy at mile 20, that's the time to pick it up a bit. But you probably won't
Right on advice. Thanks for the tip. I think I'll probably need to monitor my pace frequently with Garmin. I'm getting excited. A little nervous, but excited.
