Just get back in shape after slacking hard in 2017.

Maybe run another marathon later in the year.

Maybe run a Marathon once in a while....but I am not in that competitive mode anymore.

7.04 miles on Hiline.  I kind of get the road to myself now that they have it shut down from Tyhee Rd to almost Chubbuck Rd to build the new intersection at Siphon Rd.  This is a 5 month project...yuck.

I got a late start today as we were up late yesterday with the excitement of the arrival of granchild #6 yesterday at 4:47pm.  Mom and baby are doing Great.  Grandchild #7 is due in September.

I told myself that this would help get me heat acclimated.  Well it better....it was 80 degrees by the time I finished!

18.09 mile loop all inside town.  Around mile 13 I went through the Wellness Center and they were setting up for a family fun fair.  Looked awesome!

Longest run so far this year.  20+ next Saturday?

It was raining when I woke up this morning, so I was a bit worried.  Luckily the rain let up right before I picked up Troy.  We drove to the Pocatello Marathon start line and ran the course.  It was a beautiful morrning with temps starting at 48 and ending at 63.  Very comfortable.

We saw TONS of bike riders from the annual Spinderella event during the miles from Inkom to Century H.S.

We ran 20.06 miles.  My first 20+ miler in almost 2 years......

I met Troy at his house at 6:00am and we ran from there.  We ran to ISU, then Ross Park, then down to the Connector and back to his house.  Total 17.80 miles.

I was considering stretching this to a 20, but after the week I have had this was plenty!

I picked up Troy at 6:00am.  We drove to the Marathon start.  It was a nice, cool 47 degrees and had just rained earlier.  We ran 20.78 miles to Century High School and it was still only 63 when we finished.
