I ran 9 miles this morning, and in the words of the immortal Michael Stipe, I feel fine. Tried the Galloway method on the run and it was a big success. A little over and 11:30 pace, which is what I hope to do for the upcoming half. Basically, I ran a full mile longer than last week, but did it 15 minutes quicker. Burned over 1200 calories.
For the first time since I started this quest, I think I am actually going to make it. One month to go . . .
