Every year I forget how long this process takes.
Today I ran 6 miles around the neighborhood. It was only about 86*F, but it sure felt hotter. (I know, in July I'll be begging on my knees for an 86*F day).
I just kept telling myself how much worse it was going to be on that shadeless, merciless Eagleman course in 12 days from now. And I'd already have 57+ miles in my legs for the day. And 6 miles won't even get me to the turnaround point on the run course.
Yep, that's good training!
