TM  Long Run at Columbus gym - 20 miles w/ 1hour moderate variation - 2:37:10 total.

2 resets and a couple bathroom breaks.  Its a lot better when 20 is the long run, and I am not completely destroyed for the rest of the week.  Marathon (and shorter) training focus this year.  Burnt out on those ultra things
