.25 mile warm-up :-)

20 miles on the Jeremy Ranch Road with Jake, Nathan Krah, and Josh - but mostly with Josh as Jake and Nate left us. 2:27 felt much easier than Monday. Great run.

I'm glad we gave you and Josh some alone time. Good run - you've gotten your share of long runs in the past week!

Your watch needs an exorcism. My wife and kids actually did stay on the creek most of the time and they loved it. Nice job today.

You've had some really nice long runs! Now they will get even better since schools going to be out! :)
