20 miler

the 20 miler was a test of my endurance and willpower. and the ability to distract my mind from the crazy distance. there was despair, pain, and also zen like acceptance. i did finish though, in 5 hours and 27 mins. so many people at the race was awesome. the run far timing guys did an honor guard for me and the pregnent lady i ended up walking with, at the 25k mark. also, when i was walking by myself towards the waterstop near mile 9, the volunteers watched me and clapped :-) so it made me feel better about being at the end.

"An average walking speed is about 3 mph (5 km/h),"

So hey you beat the average human walking speed by like 2/3rd's mile an hour over the course of 20 miles. I'd say your doing really good. And your above average, so think about it that way :)

    Yes it's pretty horrible. I try not to think about it. But just have to hope that people turnout for the mid terms, and then we oust him in 4 years.

    Also, that our democratic senators do their…
