Houston, we have a breakthrough

Actually, two.

One: After biking an hour yesterday morning, I hopped off and began my 2:45 run.  It was 5:30am then.  You can do the math on what time I had to wake up to start the workouts.  Jeff biked alongside me with a headlamp as I ran down the completely-dark creek trail near our house for 19.5 miles.  The sun came up 2 hours into the run - I couldn't see my Garmin so I was blind on pace to that point and just running what felt comfortable.  Well, it was a good one - the fastest I've ever run that long.  All the work is paying off!

I won't talk about how getting ART on my sore legs felt today though.

Two: It appears Stanley's hard little heart might be melting with respect to Puck.

Congrats on your run and wow on your dedication to get up so early.

I'm currently getting up at the same time, but without such a training session ahead of me. Or maybe I do, I walk a whole 8 hours on work with some crouching and heavy lifting plus card pushing, does that count as training too? My body at least feels so.

Anyway you are my inspiration.

Jeff was an awesome husband to light your way up the creek trail. Just in case some dark morning he can't join you a Knog light or two could be easily attached to your bike and are weight negligible, easily removable. I use one in strobe mode to keep drivers here in Cupertino aware of my presence even in the daytime. Knogs are leds and pretty bright.
