6.25 miles on the treadmill at the gym with 9 x 1/4 mile at 5:56 pace mixed in. They had the heat cranked up and it was sweltering hot.

Just trying to mix in a little bit of faster running to ease back into some real training. 

Been thinking about updating my information over to the right there. So y'all can be anticipating that. 'Bout to roll out the 2012 plans and goals in case the Mayans are wrong and the world don't end.

Great race report haha! I thought maybe you did some insane trail run in 17 hours and 44 minutes a la Crockett but then I read the title.

I can't wait until you unveil the 2012 schedule, and then read the subsequent letsrun discussion about it.

Your tales of the kindness of Duluth locals, along w/ the fact that they are pulling out all the stops for the USA 1/2 champs, has been enough to already convince me that Grandmas will be the place to be in June.
