Five point Three mile steady state run on long country road blocks; horse manure in the fresh cool air, an occasional barking dog or passing vehicle…
An early toughening run aimed into the future at a ten-miler trail race 5 months and 1200 miles away.

2. Remember to remember not to give up.
3. Try, more than forcing, to let good form in your sport happen.
4. Remind me how to count.
