I wrote a review of a great book I just finished by a great guy Brian Stark, Getting to the Point in a Dozen Pairs of Shoes. You can find the review here. I really enjoyed it and will cherish the signed book for years to come.
I was able to get 7.2 miles today in 1:10:00; yesterday the same course in 1:08:02. I'm able to run, but it is slow and a fair amount of pain with each pounding step. I think I'll be able to do my 50K this weekend, but very slowly.
