With the Baltimore Marathon (31 days) and the Marine Corps Marathon (46 days) looming in the near future, 5:00 AM marked a return to the training grind with an easy, easy 6 miler. The left knee seems to be in decent working order, and the right toe is getting better by the day. I suppose those issues were simply the pitfalls of running 100-milers.
I'm very excited to share that I will be crewing Bryon Powell of iRunFar.com fame at the Iroquois Trails 100 Mile race in two weeks (Sept. 20 & 21 in Virgil, NY). I first met Bryon at GTR100 in 2007 where, after he paced Andy Jones-Wilkins for 30 miles to victory, he was good enough to spend 20 miles pacing me. We've become good friends ever since, and I'm psyched to get to return the favor at IQ100.
