I have been really tired in the mornings. Today was no different and by the time I got out of bed I only had time for 4 miles. Most of the run was spent coughing and hacking up some nice mucus that I have had for the past 3 days. Pretty gross! By the time I got home I felt like I was warmed up to run, that's about it.
This one's for Clay:
During 13 years of professional running, I never got it fully right. It's like golf. You'll never be perfect; you try to get a little better at every opportunity. That's the beauty of distance running, I think. It's a never-ending journey of trying to find out how good you can be, what I can improve on, even with my limitations. I'll never know the answer, but I'll keep looking for it.

I found this interview with Sergio Reyes after the TC Marathon off the asics aggies website. It is about 20 minutes but worth a listen. He talks about his preparation for Twin Cities, mental strategy, and fueling during his race.
