Fun, easy miles today.  I decided to consciously run about 15 seconds per mile slower and accept that I am a poozle.  I did however decided that I need to run a marathon.  How about Ogden 2010? avg 8:48

I really enjoyed this run because the weather was perfect and Mt. Olympus was beautiful.  This is the beginning of slower miles, trying to just build a base for an ill advised but necessary try at my first marathon (ogden 2010).  avg around 8:55 with 5 miles of mostly up and 3 down.

Fun morning run with the new Brooks Cascade 4 shoes i got yesterday.  They are trail runners but I wanted to start getting a feel for them.  Did Big Titty loop with the Naniloa extension.  avg 8:51  Also carried a hand bottle to experiment.  Liked it overall.

Good run in the chilly morning air, naniloa, kentucky, then down around olympus high to home.  avg 8:43  The slower pace is helping me build up a better base I believe and allowing me to put a few more miles in without feeling wasted.

First of all, the first 2 miles and 1800 feet of elevation sucked rocks.  Run and powerwalk was the name of the game.  I was questioning why I was even interested in the marathon anymore and or the 21k trail we are thinking of doing in California,  however the scenery was beautiful, the downhill was dangerous and fun and the finish sweet.  I am not sure I was first in the over 40 division but I think so since it was just me and one or two other guys that I know finished after.  Small crowd but fun in the trailrun circuit.  Down hill miles 4 and 5 were in the 6:34 to 6:48 range for me, which is a record for this duffer.
