I was supposed to run with the Avi8tr tonight but he bailed on me in favor of a warm run in Las Vegas. So I had to go it alone.

12.5 miles in 1:35 wandering around the neighborhood and SHP. Tried to run on grass in the park as much as possible. Cold, wet feet most of the way. 

Been thinking a lot the last couple days about factors that lead to marathon success and about it's about so much more than just being able to do this workout or that workout. Mostly it revolves around providing your nervous system with the correct stimulus at certain times in the weeks leading up to the race.

I'll try to elaborate when my thoughts are more understood by me.
