Just a quick post to ask for everyone's help. My neighbor's sister is a runner and nutritionist. She's co-authoring a nutrition book for marathoners and half-marathoners and trying to get as many runners as possible to complete a survey to learn more about what runners are doing in terms of nutrition before, during and after the race. If you have 10-15 minutes, please help her out by completing the online survey. Thanks.

I had a great 16 mile run yesterday. The weather broke just in time - while it was still 68 at 7AM the dew point was down to 58. I met up with Eric and Jim (it's nice to have retired friends) and we basically ran the Get in Gear loop multiple times (2 with Jim and all 3 with Eric). According to PR's mile markers we were running 7:50 at the start, dropped as low as 7:18, before backing off to 7:30s towards the end.

This morning I thought I'd be a little tired, but I got in a nice 10 mile run in Lebanon Hills. I'm not sure if it's the cooler temps or what, but there wasn't a black fly to be found. Hard to believe given that we're in the 3rd week of July.

Sorry no quote of the day today. Gotta run.

Oh dear.. I filled out the question form for your neighbor.. and forgot to mention one of our very very favorite post-race foods: Great Harvest whole grain raisin runner buns!
Any chance you could pass that on?

Sure. I'll pass that along. Thanks for taking the time to fill out the survey.
