My weekend consisted of marking papers, reading a number of journal articles, and running. In the end, I got very little done. Did I tell you that I ran? I did 24 miles on Saturday and another 12 miles on Sunday. I will push for a 100 mile week. Though this week seems big, next week will be very small;I am thinking 26 miles next week; I am slowing down late for this up coming marathon due to a slow training start. I have no choice but to be very productive in with the rest of my days this week; I still need to finish marking papers, finalizing my conference paper, and preparing for all three of my courses. I am going to run my coffee pot 24/7; I guess I should avoid the Merlot some this week.
In an attempt to record a top time, I will run with a pace group. I have never done this before; it is my hopes that they will carry me (figuratively) to the finish line. Based on my previous times, I was awarded a top starting seed in corral A.
You must qualify to be placed in Corral A and Corral B. Corral A and Corral B are now closed.

A friend of mine told me how one of her colleagues, an avid marathoner too, is a green runner; I am considering this; if you have ever been to one, you know there is much waste. So, in an attempt to be green, I am going to run with a side bag to store my water cups. I hope to inspire other runners to do the same. Hey, I am inspired.
