Summary 119 miles for the week, two shitty workouts, not real happy with this week. I'm going to back off the volume and drop the hard last miles this week and run two races the john carson 2 mile in chelmsford on the 4th(Wednesday), i'm hoping to run close to the cr and win. Then the Boilermaker 15k in Utica on the 8th(Sunday) I'd really like to run 45 flat or better and be the top American there. So high hopes for the week we'll see how it turns out.

Quotes of the week "In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves... self-discipline with all of them came first."
Harry S. Truman

"I've said many a time that I think the Un-American Activities Committee in the House of Representatives was the most un-American thing in America!"
