Relativity is a funny thing. I think that it was Einstein that said that, “When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity”. I experienced this on Saturday when running my required 12 miles. I finished it at my target pace, (ok, a bit over at 8:15, but that does include a bit of stopping at stoplights etc) and was no worse for the wear. In fact, while running my knee didn’t even bother me one bit. So, speaking relatively, it really didn’t seem like a long run.

So, all in all, I feel that I am ready for the race. I can only imagine that the millions of people who read this are happy to hear that the race is coming up soon so that I will ramble on about something new.
