Week in Review

Total: 75 miles
A couple long walks
A million times up and down my stairs

As I sit here typing this, it's hard to believe that another week has passed and we're already well into July. This summer--actually, this entire year--has absolutely flown by. Although it seems as though MCM is still in the distant future, I know it will be upon us before we know it.

Overall, this was another solid week of training, and my highest mileage to date. I got in one solid workout (Tuesday) and one lackluster workout (Saturday), capped off with a strong long run today. I'm enjoying the higher mileage but looking forward to a few lighter weeks as we finish off this mini-cycle before starting the full blown marathon training. Since Owen was off laughing and riding and cornholing in Alaska last week, Jilane apparently decided to run both of their mileage combined and put in another 90+ mile week. Clearly she is carrying Team MJ at this point, but I'm trying to contribute as well. If nothing else, the encouraging catcalls from the local bums help to buoy my spirits. Yet another reason I'm grateful to be back in the ATL!

Your Dad here. Told your Mom I was going to forward your "blogdress" to let her try, but thought I'd give it one more chance, and it came up. Go figure!

Enjoyed reading your postings. I'm still waiting, though, for the dwarf-on-a-unicycle sighting!

Run on!
