Total Distance

I did this run today because I know I won't have time tomorrow.  The plan was to take my high school aged daughter to school and go from there.  But then I was told she wasn't going 'til later, but I could take my junior high aged daughter.  But she doesn't leave until 35 minutes after my other daughter.  Seeing my disappointment, my wife told me to just go now and she would take my junior high aged daughter with my college aged daughter's car.  So I drove out to Usery Pass and decided to see how far I can run.  Optimistically I wanted to run to the top and back down.  About 2.3 miles up I started to wear out, but I told myself that I hadn't driven this far to run less than 5 miles.  Also, I knew that it's not as steep after 2.5 miles, so I pressed on and decided to turn around at 3 miles.  Just yesterday I happened upon a previous blog entry of mine from 8 years ago when I ran this route.  I was amazed at how fast I used to be.  While running today I tried to see if I could pick up the speed, but I'm no where near what I used to be.  I don't know if I'll even come close to that again, but I'll continue onwards.

Good miles! I love it when the "good" voice wins out. You're the man!

Thanks, buddy! We still need one more runner on the team. Got any ideas?

I can ask my brother, but that would be a slim possibility. Chuck's cousin, maybe, but I don't think she runs too much.
