Morning run outside before work of 9 miles in 1:18. Starting to report my running again after another long absence from the blog. I miss keeping in touch with fellow runners and the inspiration that the blog provides. I pray for those involved in the Boston tragedy today. I simply don't understand other than the world is broken and in decline.

9 mile run outside before taking the girls to school and heading off to work. A little slower than yesterday finishing in 1:20. Hams and backside are sore. Hope it's dry long enough for a run tomorrow morning. Lots of rain lately.

First run of 9 miles before work done in about 1:20. Not wearing a watch.

Second run of 3 miles did slowly on the mill before heavy deadlifts, push-ups, seated calf raise, and core work with weight.

Easy 12.55 mi outside in 1:48. First 30 minutes was a drag. Cold, but at least there was a big bright orb in the sky.
