    Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

        Not much of a plan this week and I had hoped to hit 40 but it was smarter to back off.

          Thanks, Holly.  And congrats on the 50K!

          When I glanced at it quickly, I read Mike's Monday entry as "crutches and stretchers."  Oh no!

           

          Easy week for me.  Gonna be a hot one.

              Mon: Memorial Day 4 miler (23:58), w/ 1 mile warmup
              Tue 10.2 mi (1:22)
              Wed 12.2 (1:38)
              Thu 10.2 mi (1:22)

              Total: 55 miles ( 7 hrs 21 min )

              Memorial Day 4 miler was a small local race, less than a 1,000 runners and walkers.
              My goal was to break 24 min and that's what I got, so I'm happy. The amusing part is that
              if I ran, say, 24:01 it would be the same exact time and pace, but I would not be happy.
              I got 2nd age group, and 25th overall, finishing just behind the 1st woman, who
              turned out to be only 15 years old. She outkicked me in the last 200m
              and she did look young, but 15 is pretty amazing
