Very slow LR - Ran out people trails to town limits of Clifford, IN, and back through town.

33.6 miles - 5:39:46.  There was more than some walking involved today. 

Huma gels turned on me after 4 ofthem.  Stopped at gas station and got a gronola bar and gatorade

Easy jog over to hospital ER to get stitches pulled.  The wife and several others have informed me of this dated procedure (should be dissolving stitches?)

Anyway - about an hour over there, 45 minutes to get somebody to pull them, and a little longer trip home with a different route.  Finally remembered to look for my headlamp that I lefton light pole - it was gone.

About an hour drive up 65 to Ben Haris State Park for the Indy Half Mar., newly owned by the IMM race company and has eliminated the full marathon option :( 

Very nice course almost 100% on pavement, with a couple of hilly sections.  Very good weather, also - 50 degrees, a bit of wind, and sunny.  Running bandit today, and feeling apprehensive about even toeing the line prior to race.  Then after some bathroom break and some jogging to loosen up, I do just that - I warm up and stifness/soreness loosens up.  Toe the line near the front and after the gun, quickly discover a stud pulling away from the field and a group of 3 that I recognize as some local elites.  The pack is thick with the rest of us around 1:20 (and up).  It thins out and me and a couple guys and gal seperate and settle into about 6:05-6:10 pace.  The race wears on and I am delighted to find that I am running relaxed and legs not hurting around 6:00 pace on flat ground.  By mile 10-11 I am alone in 5th.  Reamin there until about 12 and a girl is breathing down my neck before I know it.  Kick and cross the line in a unrecorded/unawarded 5th.

Splits:  5:57, 5:58, 6:20, 6:07, 03, 05, 05, 11, 02, 15, 8, 13, 02, 5:05 pace for partial

1st place ran 1:07, 2-4 ran 1:14:XX

Good luck to everybody running Chicago tomorrow. Dont drink to much Goose Island

Slow, sore, and tired.  Carried a handheld and ate a gel to no avail.  12.5 miles - about 2 hours worth of misery.  New shoes - Saucony Omni 13.  $60 at Edinburgh Outlet

Med. LR at relaxed effort.  Great weather. Day off work for Columbus Day. Yep, it's a paid holiday for us state workers here in IN. Drained the hand held and 2 gels. Stopped twice for #1 and once for #2... annoying.  Great scenery around Grand View Lake as usual.  Legs were not responding to any kind of climbing, though.  20mi. Total - 2:58:xx

Long Run - start at 9 am.  humidity still high and temps climbed to 80 by the end of the run.  Started off well - kept it in the 8-8:45 range through about 23 miles.  Ran out of water about that point and went without for about 20 minutes.  Never caught back up on hydration after refilling handheld.  Nasty downward spiral.  Walked the last 2 miles.  33.84 miles total - 5:23:48. 

Tapering down on the LR's up until Nov. 12

11 am Long Run.  Out and baclk on People Trail out to Fire Station/airport.  Much better weather, and consequently, much more encouraging resulting run/performance.  Stopped a couple times for Number 1's, refill on water, and 1 No. 2.  Ate 3 gels and roughly 2 full handhelds of water.  29 miles - 3:55:52.  Stayed around the 8 minute range most of the way and was pretty comfortable.  Last long run before the 100M.  Maybe a 18-20mi. next week. and then maybe bandit half marathon in Indy if feeling fresh.
