AM - Easter Long Run: Grandview, Random CR (550, Tipton, etc.).  Great weather: threatened to rain and storm as I approached Grandview - dark ominous clouds over the hills and all around the lake.  Dierted to trail a little bit up Belleville climb, but, then back to road.  Storm clouds went away and it was sunny, humid and hot after that.  4 scoops of Tailwind drink mix with 1.5 liter hydr. pack was money again.  Think I need a bigger pack... Struggled today whenthat ran out with 4 miles left, but, was determined to reach 28.1 and get 120 for week (Mon.-Sun.).  Did some walking, but, I got there.  Stopped at house and chugged some water nutrition and went back out to finish.  28.1 mi. - 4:22.  Walked with kids at Outlet Mall.

Walk at work

Took afternoon at work and ran home.  Seymour to Columbus on CR's.  warm and humid with some windy /rainy conditions. started to thunder at the end, but, anything bad held off until later in the day.

Drank a handheld of Tailwind/water mix, anda another bottle of water.  Had some stomach issues that eventually worked out.  Took some walking breaks to keep the effort light.

Some pain in the left foot.

20.69 miles - 3:03

AM - Carrying the stick w/ sign for 3:25 group for Carmel Marathon this morning.

Had a decent group through 16 miles.  Had 1 guy that made it for the whole ride - 3:22:xx should get him in to Boston for 3:25 Qualifying AG.  Felt pretty good to see him achieve his goal.  He was pretty exciteed at the end.  WU miles w/ Zane and cool down miles back to truck.  Nice day for a marathon - temps around 50 degrees, but, a little windy.  Glad I could help by breaking the wind for a couple folks throughout the race. 

Overall, a very rewarding experience.
