got a ggod night sleep and had the day off work for election day.  Took kid to the alletgist, did some house hunting in Greenwood... and then came home.  Sstarted a long run attempt from the house.  Starting around noon, but wearing the hydration pack intending to go 4 hours / 30 miles.  Hydr pack did not keep me from really bonking around 3 hours in to the run and walk/joggin it home.  Poor first impression of LR fitness - really kept the pace easy, but, was def feeling the recent sickeness in the lungs throughout the run.  hopefully, the sickness was the reason for the struggle... This really a bench mark for assessing if I should givethe 100 mi. attempt another go.  awesome course - Grandview loop with Carr Hill/YCamp out and back.  24 miles - 3:38.

AM run around neighborhood.  threw in some uptempo work at the end.  6 miles - 47:00.

Busy day at work, a sick kid, and some negligent contractors building a house next to our house.  Literally napping in our yard when I got home from work.

6:30 am Long Run: 70 degrees and clear skies starting from the house.  Put on the hydration pack and loaded with clif bar, and tailwind rasberry flavor mixed with a full 1L of water.  Took my favorite route: Out Carr Hill/Youth Camp hopping off road when possible (grassy strips/cleared areas).  Took that out to Grand view and ran 2 loops on the road.  Toyed with hopping on to the GV Woods Trail, but, don't think I'm quite ready for long and trail yet. A couple of bathroom break stops once at GV, but, pretty strong and consistent after that. 

Slowly eating the Clif bar and hitting the Tailwind/water mix ever couple of miles (more frequently after 20 miles) worked great for keeping a pretty good balance between energy level and GI/stomach condition. 

8.5 miles out to GV, 7.1 miles / loop (x2), and 8.5 miles back.  31.2 miles - 4:17:50, approx. 2k vert.

Walk with the kids after dinner
