and the very ugly.
But...(sigh)...here I am twelve weeks into the training, four weeks away from the race,
with not a single blog to show for myself.
So, here is a little run down of the last twelve weeks of my life (running related only).
It's a little lengthy, but hopefully it will bring a smile to your face.
Especially if you have ever trained for any type of race.
Oh that run felt really good…Muscles feel good, warm, strong…Whew...
