400m/800m competitively in track in high school.  Took 15 years off. Started running again in 2010.  Married to my beautiful wife, Tiffany, with 2 little boys, now 4 and 6.  I'm a civil engineer working for the Indiana DOT in Seymour, IN.   I live in a slightly larger town about 20 miles north - Columbus, IN.  Originally from Lexington, KY.

Nothing - no running.  Can barely walk.  Basking in the glory of my fortuitous victory

PM: run around the neighborhood.  Feeling decent - got the heart rate up and in to about AT near the end.  Checking on if I should even attend the half marathon in Seymour (that I paid for months ago) - probably will go suffer through it.  4.06 mi. - 29:50

AM Half Marathon in Seymour - 7:30 a start with a light rain and about 60 degrees.  Pretty perfect weather. 

No expectations for this race with the 50M still only a week ago, and recovery progressing, but, still in process.  Solo run for the whole race - The rain has scared everybody away.  I go out at comfortable 6:15-6:20 pace and stay there.  Felt fairly calm aerobically, but, feel it pretty bad in the legs and right shoulder.  

Solid AT effort: 6:17, 17, 18, 18, 15, 23, 28, 20, 06, 21, 22, 24, 31, 0:37 - 1:23:04 FTW

Rained the whole time, feeling ood, and nearly as fatigued as anticipated.  Probably ready for ramping back up next week.
