I got sick of running so fricken slow so I just decided to stop running so fricken slow. I strapped on my Five Fingers and went on my way. But I quickly discovered my will could only carry me so far... It was still pretty hot today.
Anyway, I finished in 32:30. Quite a bit slower than I anticipated, but way better than before. Take that, Tuesday, and take that, heat wave.
Also, I got the "first in a series" of emails from Chicago Marathon for participants today. I guess this is for real. I very excite.
