I am! H is doing the relay so I'm head cheerleader this time.
next up:


This broken wing will fly again
One fine day
This blackbird's mute gonna sing again
One fine day

So all you sinners come out
And all you drunkards crawl out
Come into the light of one fine day

My bib number 3271. I'm on me way to becoming Runner Emeritus (RE) ... . Today I ran 29 Km on a treadmill in 2 hours 39 minutes and 45 seconds. Still a bit slow but hopefully I'll break my ATB PB and at 50 years of age I'll become RE. First time in 8 years that I actually follow a formal training program .....

An unexpected cold last Thursday forced me to cut on this week training. I had to consume more oil of oregano than usual to get rid of the cold quickly. So today I was able to do 16 Kms (10 miles). I was supposed to run 29 Kms yesterday but the cold didn't allow me to do so......

Better to go in a bit undertrained than sick. Heal up!
