Thinking I might sign up for the virtual Stay Home race with Vacation Races. Pick your own distance and it might be fun to have the medal to commemorate this crazy time.

To be honest, it’s the 5 runs a week that’s beat me down a little. Not having a third rest and training for a half has been rough. Not to mention the weather has sucked big balls! But one and done for me!

Nice to be done! Been nursing some hip pain and really need to shut it down for a week or two. Now I can. Good luck the rest of the way all!
