I don’t have time to really write anything today, as Easter Day preparations are in full swing, but I did want to provide an update on yesterday’s 12 mile run.
Clarke and I ran the full 12 at a 9:31 pace. While that would bring me in around three minutes past my two hour goal, I typically always run a little faster on race day. So it should come right down to the wire.
I also weighed after the run – which is cheating just a bit, since my body was totally depleted of fluids, but, hey, I should get some added benefit from running 12 miles! – and was sitting at 191.5, exactly fourteen pounds lost since setting the goal. That leaves six pounds to go in two weeks. That will probably come down to the wire as well.
On a different note – Good Friday brought devastating weather to this area later in the day. A tornado touched down in the Murfreesboro area, killing a young mother and her nine-week-old baby, injuring many more, and destroying houses. Please keep all affected in your prayers.
