The Lincoln Mile is a timed, one mile race through Campus in downtown Lincoln. David ran with Susan and they had a blast!

|Fun with the parking meter.|
|Time to RUN!|

|A great race and a strong finish!|
|She races for cookies. :) Smart kid!|
The race was super well organized, as always, and the Lincoln Track Club did a stupendous job of honoring every runner of every age and ability. This was another run in the Kids Grand Prix. As an additional event with the adult runs, they organize a kids fun run on about 7 events through the season. The kids even get a prize at the end. Yay!
As for my training - I was pretty pooped today. I underestimated the impact of a three hour workout. I slept like a rock (partly due to the pain pill I took for my back!). My body was extremely unhappy about 2:20 on the bike. Sheesh. I was happy to wake up feeling better this morning and even better as the day progressed.
My friends were praying. I could feel it!
This afternoon, I did some speed intervals on my treadmill. It was 94F outside, so there was no way I was doing them outside. I experimented with walking the recoveries and had a much better experience. My speed intervals were able to be pushed even faster. And...my back didn't hurt at all during the run!
Tomorrow is leg day...EEEPS!
