Finally Another Run

We did a very slow 4.12 miles this morning at a pace of 14:54...actually more walking than running, but none the less we were out on the streets again....YEA!!!!

We strategized about the marathon on Sunday, what to take, what to wear, what to do on Saturday...as little as possible, outside of eating and maybe visiting the race expo.

Last night my wonderful bride presented me with an early race present. Several weeks ago I had looked at some Oakley sunglasses and was amazed at how well they fit and the eye comfort they afforded out in the sun. We talked about maybe we could get them after I finished this marathon as sort of a reward....well, she sneakily ordered them for me ahead of time and decided I need them for race day so I got a present from her last night. It was too dark to wear them this morning but I'm looking forward to wearing them this weekend.....I Love You so much and so appreciate all your support.

I'm sure your gift to her will be just as spectacular.

If she likes to antique shop, downtown St. Charles is awesome.

Have a great race and have fun.

Hurray for new sun glasses. I really could use some good sports wraparound type glasses, but I wear already wear corrective lens and just haven't been able to justify the expense of running only glasses.

Up next, the race report, woot!
