Marathon pace run. 8 miles in 47:41 on the Urb. Still sick but it's localized only in my throat. Otherwise everything feels fine.

4xcruise miles on the Urb. I was shooting for 5:20 pace, but that ended up being a little too quick. 1:00 rests with 3.5 mile warmup and cooldown.

I went and ran with the Western team today to see some old familiar faces. We did the Whatcom loop for 11 miles. Probably ran it too hard, I think the second half was 6:30s. But it was good to see old friends.

Headed up to Padden for tempoish effort. 6.2 miles at 5:40. I hit the first quarter in 78 but settled into pace and finished in 34:57 feeling like it was fairly easy. Padden has a nice section of rolling hills that made the run much more interesting. 5:38 avg mile pace.
