        Hilenie. Hope you’re getting better and back into shape but, at a certain point that’s hard for the brain to accept until long after it happens, if ever, the younger days never come again.  However, reminiscing about them just makes 'em get better and better.
        Although my last three races have all fizzled before their respective target goals, nobody fails in something like next week’s 12-hour run as they just publish everyone’s total miles, not the times.
        3/22 tetsujin - Green Lake Dizzy Daze 12-hour (thongs)
        3/23 tetsujin - Mercer Island Half Mary (barefoot)


        If I can walk for all 12 hours on Saturday, it will be better than all of last year’s zilched-out training for the Pigtails Challenges in May.  We'll see if Sunday's planned half mary cool-down works out.

                    "This is my approach as both athlete and coach: (quoting Steve Magness) Even if the training is perfect, if you don't buy into it, you will not run fast.  Chase Consistency, Not Perfection."  Neely Spence Gracey

                                I thought about doing the full like Holly, but that might be biting off more than I can chew.
