26 miles in 3:15. I mostly averaged around 7:30 pace after doing the first couple miles between eight and nine minute pace.

This is easily the longest I've ever gone on a training run. I feel good, no aches or pains. Maybe It'll pay off in May and June. Now we are off to Sunday School for the kids (Starbucks across the street for me) and church. Abby is participating in the service today and is excited.

Today is Andy's adoption Day (the anniversary of the day we finalized his adoption), and as always, we will go to Bucca Di Beppo tonight to celebrate with friends.

Thanks Steve. Yeah, I had planned to do 21 or 22, but was feeling good so I thought why not just run a marathon.
