It was 56 degrees and windy this morning. I was planing a slow recovery run but I ran in to Barry Smith right after I started and he was running a fast 3 miles down to Golds gym so I ran 3 fast miles with him. I slowed down after that to do the real recovery run. I ran 12.63 miles and was a bit tired after all the yard work I did yesterday trying to get our house looking good for the wedding next month.
Yesterday's run let me know that I could probably run OK in the Des News marathon but I have decided to NOT run it. I just worry that if any course could cause a flare-up in my foot it would be that one. That is the only marathon every year that leaves me beat-up for a couple of days due to the steepness of the hills. I have run it 8 straight years but I can get it next year. My next marathon will be in Park City on August 22nd although I have a couple of 10K's before then.
