Run to live; live to run
Way to o Beth!
My 10 year old biked along because she wanted to do a "triathlon" today. Swim practice at 8:00, soccer at 1:00, bike 10K at 2:45. She's got good energy.
Happy Saturday, Daily Runners!
4 miles on the treadmill today (raining pretty steady all day), along with 4 miles outside yesterday.
Heading to Columbia, SC tomorrow for a conference next week. Hopefully, I'll get a few runs in while I'm there.

20 mile bike ride with the wife, headwind the entire damn time, and my legs are a lot more tired right now than they should be after a 20 mile ride. I have a NY strip steak for dinner though so I WIN!
Managed to squeeze in a 10 mile treadmill session @ 8:44 pace while the family was chillin' in the room before going out for the evening. TV had the Bulls-Nets game with about 1:30 left when I started. The game ended up lasting nearly the entire time (I only had 5 min left), after 3 OT.
Just logged it & realized it puts me at 162 miles for April, PB monthly miles.
Trip to Boston was great. We walked about 6 miles, and after my 15 mile bike ride which was uphill the entire time (or at least felt like it), my legs are TOAST.
The marathon memorial was... emotional. One of the pictures I snapped of alllll the running shoes up:

I was inspired by Phil and did get a bike ride in today. First time I've gone more than around the block since I was over 200 lbs. It turns out it's much easier these days! Did one of my LR routes, about 10.5 miles. I'd rather be running, though!
PRs: 5K: 25:35 / 10K: 53:03 / 10mi: 1:26:15 / HM: 1:55:02
Upcoming: Beat the Blerch 10K 9/21, Portland Marathon (debut) 10/5
I did weights tonight. I'm sore.

Fuzzy - busy day for her
Tom - have fun at the conference
DaveP - congrats on the monthly mileage PR
10.4, the first day that can really be called "warm" since I moved up on this hill just after Christmas. 7:28 pace felt pretty good. Broke out the lawnmower, there's a lot more to cut than I had imagined.
Wow, Shirfan. Lots of shoutouts, well done. Nice run!
