Lets do this!

Day 94 - August 26, 2009 - Week 12
Just a quick note here. Very grateful for how things rolled this AM. Cool to see some familiar faces out there on the HCP (Highland Creek Pky); James, Scott x 2, Roger, etc.

Happy to report that post a 20 min spin on the HCP the calve cooperated. Still amazed how hard it is to pull back w/ this new approach to running; more of mid-foot emphasis w/ less emphasis on the 'toe off'. Not trying to set PRs here w/ days leading into IML, but it is difficult to go slower then sub 7 pace. My good friend Mike Danenberg ( has been a HUGE part of this 'rehab' process and thank him deeply. Crazy how the speed comes w/ very little effort. 2.5 miles covered...w/ virtually no pain. You all rock who are praying specifically about this...Thank you for the intercessory prayer.

Can't wait to see how the legs feel post 112 at L-ville/L-Vegas. The hope/plan/vision is to hold 8s for the 26. Would do the moonwalk and pull the 'water sprinkler' if the calve is a non-issue and sub 8s became a reality (those who know me...know I would do that)....

As Luke would say (per my prompting), "...lets do this! the race...go Dada..." (w/ a developing 'air fist' to boot). Son, not only will 'Dada' and 'Mama' do this, but we will be seeking to reflect Christ through it all...
