LRb - 9am start from house.  Already about 80 and sunny.  Ran around Columbus for while hopping from water fountain to water fountain in the parks.  Left my handheld in the QuaffForce1 truck yesterday.  22.25 miles total with lots of stops - 3:14:03.  Pretty cooked at the end.

AM run home from work - Seymour to Columbus the non-SR 11 route.  Started at 10:30 am with 2 full bottles of dilluted gatorade mix.  It wasn't enough.  80-85 degrees and sunny.  I was lathered up in sunscreen, fortunately. 

Slow and started getting hungry half way through.  Gatorade wasn't nearly enough.  Fire station on CR 450 was fortunately placed - filled up bottle there and dipped the hat in the water.  That at least got me home.  Part 1 of LR double - 21.5 miles - 3:13:30.  Some walking later in the day with the family was a struggle.

Early 5 AM Lnog Run (part 2 of double) - back to work from house.  Took shorter route down SR 11.  Pretty cool that a resurface job is going on there (SR 11 from interchange to edge of town) and afforded me the unique privelage of running down the middle of the lane over the E. Fork bridge.  A lot of unhappy cars backed up in the que watched me run passed them.  A lot cooler outside at max 60 degrees.  Left leg hurt for about 2 miles to start, but, warmed up and quit its bitching.  Fortunately, its that time of year, again - when the corn is getting higher (enough for pit stops).  Had 2 major pit stops. 

Carried one bottle of water and carried some quaker oats cereal bars to eat since I am fresh out of gels.  They are 100 calories of a bunch processed crap that went right through me.  They got me through the run, at least, feeling like I had a decent amt. of energy and no gut cramps. 

20 miles - 2:52:23  Some walking at work also.  Almost 100 miles in five days and my left leg (inner quad / groin) needs some recovery time.
