Ran west to MCT bathroom.  5 miles in 54:19 (AP: 10:51) Splits: 11:52, 10:57, 10:43, 10:20, 10:26.  Legs not completely recovered...

Signed up for Huntsville Full Monte tonight! Am I foolish to drop $100 for a suffer fest?!!! Forecast says it will be rainy with highs in the mid 60s.  Perhaps the rain will be a good cleansing! 

Start my first day of temple ordinance worker tomorrow! Exciting!

Nice! I wish I was in good enough shape to run it with you.

Hi there Dale!

From Tom Slick on Wed, Sep 13, 2017 at 07:53:25 from 173.117.195.177

Hey Ms. Smooth, I so glad you have decided to run the Full Monte and can't wait to see you there, especially at the finish line. Don't have a second thought about the weather, I think it's going to be perfect and don't worry about your legs and we both know how to run multiple marathons on short time turnovers, your going to be great. Hey, I'll be looking for you to ride the bus up to the starting line, plus I have a very special favor I'd like to ask of you.....

From Smooth on Wed, Sep 13, 2017 at 23:21:54 from 75.162.76.154

Thank you Slick for your kind words of encouragement! That's what I love about you...always positive and helpful.

I'm happy to help with whatever you'd like. I've PM'd you my cell phone number. Please feel free to text me.

I'm trying to get a ride up with Rachel Moody who's doing the Half. After the race, if I don't find a ride back, Larry will drive up to get me.

I will see you at the park Saturday morning to ride up with you. My car is only a two seater. What I want to ask of you is about my friend that I have been training for this race.....I'll ask at the park.
