The alarm went off at 4:15 a.m.

I was hoping the storms last night would have knocked out our power again so I could sleep in, but no such luck. So, I rose, dressed and ran. 4 miles, 46:04. 11:30 avg pace. If I can manage it tomorrow, I’ll do a short run, but this may likely have been my last run before I leave for Colorado Thursday morning. I’m getting nervous…

And as a side note: I think I’ve mentioned my handy-dandy running log. I record the time and distance of all of my runs, as well as which shoes I wore, and the date I bought each pair of shoes. The log then calculates pace, and gives me two estimates for a marathon finish. The four miles this morning has me up to 250 miles in my Brooks since April 13. I think I will retire this pair after Colorado this weekend. That doesn’t include miles in my Asics or my Trail Shoes. Wow. That’s a lot of miles. 😀


  1. wow! you are doing so well. i want to start running. just gotta make time.

    good luck in colorado!

  2. Relax, you’ll do fine in Colorado with all of your preparation. I’m hoping that our cool weather holds out for you! (but don’t count on it!). Elevation? What elevation?

  3. That’s a lot of miles!! Will you be posting while in Colorado??? I’m dying to know how you do.

    My mileage since April 2004 is 617.89 miles. I wish it were higher, but I had a goofy injury Dec.-March.

  5. Thanks everyone for the well-wishes. I am going to try to post while I’m there. I don’t know what my internet access situation is going to be, but if it comes down to it, I’ll post an audio-blog. Even thought I hate the way my voice sounds when it’s recorded. I’ll get over it just for you guys. 🙂
