I'm acting like I'm training for a marathon, but I am far rom convinced that this is true. I've geared up. Bought three new pairs of shoes -- two low drop, and one cushioned neutral, shorts, and a box of GU. I've raised my mileage. And, I'm finally beginning to feel like a runner again. A 9 minute pace doesn't hurt, and I've been able to string 8:30s together. That said, the idea of going further than 15-16 miles still seems inconceivable. Maybe I'll be able to break through next weekend . . .
