The first 20 miler of the year so I feel like a real runner again. I finished in 2:31:33 (7:35 pace). I ran 13 to 15 in 12:40.

I only stopped at mIle 11 for some water and one GU.I travel light on my long runs - I carry a gel pack in my hand and look for spigots on the side of buildings. No cartrige belts loaded with gell and bottles that make it look like you're going to war! Ann was making waffles when I finished so I had two huge ones with strawberries. It doesn't get any better. With about a quarter stick of butter and a quart of syrup it's the perfect post run recovery meal. Right? She's at the gym now and we are going for a drive when she gets back. Probably to the Hill AFB museum up in Ogden. Andy has been wanting to go.
