    I'm guessing there'd be more about the diamond hunting if you'd found any big ones.

    The word "marvelous" always makes me think of Billy Crystal.  


    We only found quartz!

    I know I'm excited for Boston. I'll FB message you this weekend and hopefully we can spend a few minutes.

    No book matches this time. Any of these you recommend?

    Sounds great!

    No 5-star books out of those. The best was Closer Than You Know by Brad Parks. In April I highly recommend The Glass Castle!

    yes, that's very odd - you are doing plenty of miles, I never did 100 mile weeks, would top out around 60-80.. 

    Maybe I need to fuel more for the 50k. I am going to keep working at it!

    well done ! 

    with your marathon PR, sub-3:30 should be very much possible.. my experience with 50k was that it was functionally indistinguishable from a marathon. That might be a distorted view given that a 56k was my primary race each year and I'd run marathons as long training runs.. 

    For me, they have been very different races but I haven't figured out why! I only slow down ~15 seconds from half to full marathon, but I'm slowing down 30+ seconds from marathon to 50k ("only" 5 more miles) and still not finishing strong. I'm going to figure it out!

    Great race report! I can't even imagine eating a gel every 3 miles! Wow!

    Congratulations on a great race - even though you didn't hit your A goal.

    It wasn't as bad as I expected! UCAN Edge is a lot more doable often than the super sweet ones.

    Wow! Congrats! Lot's of good stuff here, but I'm most interested to know... Have you solved the missing caffeine mystery? 

    Hah! No mystery, my husband just forgot to put the gel in the pocket when he refilled that bottle, whomp whomp.

    My minimum walking temperature is also much, much warmer than my minimum running temperature - same goes for biking and elliptigoing, and really just for leaving the house in general. 😉

    Never give up!

    Glad to see you were able to crush January, notwithstanding the cold temps.  It's been colder than usual here and my running schedule has suffered. 

    I think our winter here has been pretty average, for Missouri. We had a big winter storm this week (as did much of the country!), and I was able to get away with only 1.25 runs on the treadmill: 1 full morning run, and another day I had to finish up just my final 3 miles on it because an ice storm started during my outside run and it got very slick.

    So very excited for the Boston pro selection. Mrs. Dave and I will be there to see DS1 running his first Boston. Maybe we'll have a chance to touch base for a few minutes. I expect you'll be pretty busy that weekend.

    I would love to get together! I'll be there Friday through Wednesday.
