9 miles on a hilly route this evening (4.5 mile route ran twice). Ran the 2nd half harder than the first. Even with a really slow cool down the last 1/2 mile, I was pleased with the overall pace. Recovery run day or rest tomorrow. Haven't decided if I want to run long Sat or Sun - planning 16 or 17. 44 days to San Francisco.

Wish I was doing San Francisco too. What a nice memory!

It's not too late to sign up...you maniac. Seriously though, hope you heal up and recover well.
Lately, I've been thinking about doing Disney in January. Going to play that by ear for now though.
Off to FL for the week. If you ever go to the Santa Rosa Beach/Seaside area east of Destin they've got a great walking/running/biking path that goes for miles. Don't know how much I'll be online, so everyone stay healthy until I get back.

Sent in my app for Mount Desert Island in October--should be beautiful (Maine in mid-October!). I'm also thinking about Little Grand Canyon (Utah) in September. I'm starting to really like these scenic runs.
Brian - the Higdon plan on running a pace run before the long run doesn't work well for me...I need a rest day or a very easy run, or easy XT before my long runs - preferably a rest day, so I feel you on that one. Especially, during this this time of year for those of us below the Mason Dixon line, it's brutal. Have a great week in FL.
Russ - a Utah and Maine marathon are on my to-do lists. Love the scenery in both locales. Jealous here.
