A Preview

Dean Karnazes ran the Tecumseh Trail Marathon today as #39 in his 50 state challenge. Reading his blog entry gave me a better idea of just what Joe and I are in for in 5.5 weeks. Challenging and fun, but then I already expected that. Don't think I didn't take notice of his finish time of 4:45:21.

Check it out here.

So far this week its just been an easy 4 on Tuesday over in Via Verde on the horse path and an easy 6 tonight on the Santa Fe Dam bike path. Mile 2 came in at 8:08, closer to marathon pace than I wanted to be. I forced myself to slow down a little and ended the run with a 8:24 overall pace. I've got another easy 4 tomorrow then the Xterra Scramble La Jolla Canyon Legend 18k on Saturday.

Too bad I already missed your Washington debut! I really enjoyed meeting Joe in Portland and know you'll have a great time together. Have fun this weekend!

sounds like amazing runs - can you take some pictures just to make me jealous of what I am missing by running in the Bronx. :)

I saw DK's write up of Tecumseh and thought of you and Joe. That's sure to be a memorable race! : )

It sounds like a really fun run. I read his report too. La Jolla will definitely be a good training run for your next marathon since it's sure not going to be flat :)

Buddy, sounds like you're really working it out there. When is Indiana coming up?
