Looks like I'm getting ready to go over 1000 miles this year! Probably in my easy recovery run tomorrow morning! Huntsville - 75 days and some odd hours!

19.5 miles on a double trip around the Mt. Rd. course twice. Starting the run at 4:am at 72* and ending at 87*. 24% Humidity, and an 8 MPH Wind which was hardly noticeable. Took this run pretty easy so as not to have or create any problems running the two lane "Hot"  Blacktop! 61 days 19 hrs till the real deal Full Monte!

6.214 (10K) miles in the Deseret News 10K. The 50th Des News Marathon was also contested today. My result was 51:33 @ 8.19 pace and a successful defense of my 3rd place podium medal. I bettered my time by 1.07 minutes over the 2018 race. It was a really fun race, the morning starting temperature was 78** at 45% Humidity with about a 10 mph wind intermittently under a mostly cloud covered morning. With the above in mind this race served to bolster my thoughts that my training thus far is right on point to launch into the "Full Monte" on Sept. 21, 2019. 58 days and 20 hrs.......
