I got out for the second time this week to run and boy, am I still tired. I had every intention of running 6 miles but decided on the shorter five miles instead. The last mile I felt like a giant banana slug and wondered how will I manage next weekend at Ragnar with 16 miles? I'm hoping in a week I get more rest and zip in the legs otherwise I'll slow the team down. I have a new respect for Dean Karnazes, who ran 50 marathons in 50 days. I also have a lot of respect for people in the marathon manic club. How they can do 2 marathons in 2 weeks is amazing and that is only for the entry level. Some of the levels are gazillions of marathons in short time periods.
My friend Helen in Florida just qualified for Boston. She missed 3 weeks ago by 69 seconds and decided to go for it and made it. Amazing! Three weeks later she took 2 minutes off her time and qualified. I put a side bar up on my blog to keep track of friends going to Boston in 2011. Let me know if you're going and I'll add you too.
