Today is the first day that we have had rain in the Pittsburgh area for quite a while. It will be nice to go for a run of a few hours in the rain.
I now winding down from what was a busy running season for me. A couple of fifty mile races, a fifty kilometer race and pacing two marathons in the last eight weeks. I am ready for a little break.
In a few weeks I will be traveling to Monterrey to crew for a friend who is doing a quintuple ironman distance race. I will post the race website shortly.
I will be reporting live from the race venue, as time permits. The race format is a closed course, so the athlete's will be swimming in a pool, cycling and running will be multiple loops.
I will continue to do relatively easy training until I return from Mexico, then the real training for my return trip to Alaska begins.
