The great thing about running in the DC area is all the different people you run into. On Thursday morning during my run with Karl I saw masters runner Dave Haaga running (15 miles) to work. That afternoon, during run #2, I ran into masters runner Andrew Duncan on the Capital Crescent Trail. He is new to the area and trying to run low 15s this fall. Earlier this month he ran 4:31 as a 42 year old! It’s amazing the dedication that these guys still have. For me it is relatively easy. I have no wife, no kids and a job close to work. I do have three cockatiels, but they need only seed.
I got in 14.5 on Thursday and an easy 9 on Friday. I should hit 90+ this week.
