What a great day!  Sidewalks have no snow and I can run there instead of the streets.  With the goal of 9 miles today, another first for me for distance, I did all those stretches needed before the run.  Now being in a new location to start from, I mapped out where I needed to go on Google Earth.  Because of the longer distance, I was told by my marathoner friend at work that I should start drinking Gatorade used in the Fifth/Third Run so that my body would get use to it and not reject it if taken first time at race time.  With stretches done, dressed for 20* more than the current temp, water, and Pineapple GU, an energy boost.  Everything seemed to work as planned and my air was just fine but it takes a bit of mind control to keep my legs moving.  After completing the run, I worked on preventing sore muscles from getting too stiff and took a nap.  By the way, I left out the waffles.  Never eat them 1/2 hour before your run.

128.99 miles of training since December 1.

Ken Van the running man.
