I run for Fried Chicken!

On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

Cool that you feel so good Dutchie! I couldnt sit on the toilet after my first marathon I hurt so bad.Of course I was injured for 2 months prior to the marathon and basically did the marathon off the couch. STUPID but I had raised all that charity money....
Ugh I have my trail run tonight...not looking forward to that.
I just laid out my 18 week training plan for the Portland Marathon. It scares me
