Not only did I hit a new (new, new, new, new) high this past Saturday, I'm also cutting my average pace. There are faster folks, and there are folks that consider 8 miles a warm up.....but each week brings me to the longest I've ever run. And tonight, I just knocked out (yeah, never saw that one coming either) 4 miles at a 10:30 average pace.

If you told me 3 months ago I'd be running like this, I would've laughed in your face. But the accomplishment feels pretty good. I'm well on pace to complete the St. Jude Half Marathon in December.

Not gonna happen. On my fastest day, I'm slower than a 1-legged Kenyan.

In Kenya, the joke is usually, "You don't have to run the fastest, you just have to outrun TAFKAP"

That's why the dark stuff between elephant toes is still "slow locals"
