my timex died. four years, ten marathons, hundreds of sweat drenchings, and a few too many hot tub parties. i ordered a new one and it's this shade of green. the start/stop beep sounds way more modern than my last model, and the lap memory has increased from 30 to 50.

i decided to time my run today. it's been a long, long time. 6.6311 mile segment in 52:13 (7:52).

worked 6 long days this week and came home grumpy and unmotivated.

i'm having a ridiculously hard time figuring out my life in ATL. if there is anything that i am good at, it's screwing things up.

13 w james on the GA marathon course.

i got a bit overwhelmed last week as i started a new job and had to make big adjustments to my running and typical life schedule. i only got five runs in last week and everything felt blerhk. i suddenly saw all of my winter/spring running plans slipping out the door. but things have gone much better this week, so i'll hang on and see how it goes...

this is a hilly route (as is every route in ATL). i'm happy with the pace at this point but i have a lot of work to do. my biggest weakness is lack of power on the uphills.

i watch this every now and then when i'm looking for motivation. 

2004 was the first time i ever watched an olympic marathon. it was right before my senior year of high school, before i had even found the sport of xc. but there was something inside of me that started churning when i watched deena finish this race. i was completely consumed by it. i ran my first marathon the next summer -- des news 2005.

i'm in a nostalgic mood, apparently.
