Managed to get in 75 miles this week, my highest total for this buildup. The timing is very good, since there are only three weeks until LA. I will decrease some of the weekday runs just a bit and reduce next week’s long run by a few miles. This is the stage where you have to balance the desire to cram in some extra fitness with being smart.
Okay, time to complete my PT exercises and see who wins the final Oscars.
Can’t believe how fast time flies. Today is my 21st Shamrock Shake. It seems like just yesterday I was eagerly awaiting the shake’s arrival. Now, the minty shake is available everywhere, and I’m taking full advantage.
Last year I had the opportunity to return to the Grand Canyon. The beauty and the challenge of hiking the canyon is something special. So, when I read that Google had a “Street View” Google Maps project planned for the Grand Canyon, I was excited. Well, it turns out they recently made more than 75 miles of trails and roads available.

Here’s the third idea:
Mini Blueberry Waffles – This miniature breakfast item would have blueberries baked in, and would also come with an extra portion on the side. Perfect for the regular guy looking to power up before a day of work, or the athlete who is training for a marathon.
I am raising funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities as part of my attempt to break the Guinness World Record for Fastest Marathon Dressed as a Dairy Product -- yes, there is a world record for this! Learn More
