Last night I needed 6-8 easy and got 6 easy and 1 hard. The last mile was brutal as my right foot scuff re-emerged as a painful reminder it is not healed. I am considering putting off my long run until Monday giving myself one more day for god to re-tread my sole. am making slow progress but this is the kind of issue you run into when you pursue the barefoot scene. Ouch.
Matt Jenkins, that Marathon Maniac (see his blog Runningsocks) who runs in the Make it By Midnight marathon tells me he's dressing like Cinderella this year. What a hoot! Only a small group of folks compete in this grueling event. Just too cool IMO! Shev and I flew out of Chicago enroute to Boston this year with the guy in the middle of the picture below. He, like Matt was a Maniac. Matt J., do you know him? His name escapes me. Maniacs rock!
