Sunday AM road and trail 18 easy, 2:05:07 tot. 18

Summary 104 miles for the week, 1 easy w/o, two decent races. This week i have the steamboat 4 mile in peoria. I would feel a lot better if I had popped a 14:0's 5k going in but i'm fit so I'm excited. I'd like to run under 18:30, its a tough course and it will be hot but it will also be very competitive. I really blew it in the last competitive race I ran (moonlight) but i think I can run sub 14 through 3 miles just hanging on and feel pretty good, then i'll just have to finish this time. I'll keep things pretty low key this week but I am going to do a pretty good w/o on tuesday.

Quote of the week " I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do." ~Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird, Chapter 11, spoken by the character Atticus
