Blend well for 3+ hours, simmer on the road for another 3. Refrigerate while you sleep for just three hours, breaking up your sleep periodically by leg cramps. Serves 1.. fantastic run.

It also happened to be another great run today.

Last night I went and saw Rush in concert. Now you have to realize, after training for the last marathon primarily with Rush in my ear, it was a no brainer to see them. They even played Marathon, so I was pretty happy.

However... we live far north of Mt. View, so we didn't get home until 3am. I left for work at 6:30.

Yet at lunch, I felt great! My run reflected that.
