Really Long run in town.  Ran CR 200 to Terrace Lake, up to Ppl Trail on SR 46,  Meet up with Columbus Run club and ran their 12 mile course twice.  Course consited of 2 lollipops to airport and back to downtown.  Tried to stay on grass whenever possible.  Probably about 60Grass/40Pvmt.  Ran back home.  Made 6 stops - 4 for water/fuel, and 2 bathroom breaks.  Fuel consisted of Sprots drink, and 2 cliff bars, and 1 GU.  That amount of calorie intake seemed to be about right, and sodium, sugar balance seemed about right also.

AM - Long Run w/ 15 k "race" in the middle.  Ran slow 14 miles prior to 15k AT effort, and then ran home roughly 11 miles.  10 minute miles most of the way.  6:30-7 min. for 15k.  Feeling pretty rough all morning.  Ate 2 clif bars, a turkey sandwich after the race, and some nature valley honey granola bars on the way home.  water / light gatorade mix consumed as well.  System was not liking much of anything after the 15k effort - pretty miserable.

Easy lunch run down to Mill Race Marathon expo downtown.  Bought some gels and looked around for about 5min. and ran back home.  A junky/bum that had all of their belongings and was sitting right beside traffic on the bridge yelled at me as I passed going back home.  Pretty disturbing and mean spirited comment/tone.  Kinda ruined the otherwise pleasnt experience of the run.  7.5mi. total - 1:06:53

Mill Race Marathon 2016:  Went out slow (smart).  6:40-6:50 and staying controlled was the plan.  With humidity , but, moderate temperatures (60 degrees up to about 75 degrees), I found myself in trouble around mile 18 at the planned pace.  I slipped in to the 7 and 7:30 range by th last 5k.  Crossed the line with a little surge and finished in a totally decent 3:02:36, for 13th.  

Afterward, I got some gatorade and salty food quickly and kept the clock rolling in to some very easy/slow miles as add on.  Some walking and a bit of jogging got me to 50k in 3:59.  Finished the rest in the same manner.  Ultra Training is hard!
