Running 45:36 [3] 5.2 mi (8:46 / mi) +100m 8:16 / mi

Sunday run at St. Edward SP with brother Eric. Relaxed effort, except he wanted to go hard on the big climb. I, being for a multitude of reasons averse to running up large hills at high speed, offered no recompense for his solitude.

"it should be remembered that men always prize that most which is least enjoyed. Thus, in a new country, the woods and other objects, which in an old country would be maintained at great cost, are got rid of, simply with a view of 'improving,' as it is called."

Running 1:06:40 [3] 9.25 mi (7:12 / mi) +125m 6:55 / mi

An encouraging run. Next weekend represents the endpoint of my Two-Year Plan. I know that it is now within myself to achieve the goal; however, likewise do I know it will require a performance at the upper limits of my abilities, and nothing less will suffice. Either way, I have trained to the best my mental and physical abilities have reasonably allowed. Therefore, there are no regrets.

In other news, the historic precedents to Gonzaga's current situation are worrisome. Once again, we face a yellow-and-black underdog from the Midwest in the second round; if we prevail, we will once again face UCLA in the Sweet Sixteen. The first time around, these scenarios resulted in our program's two most painful defeats, including the infamous Crying Game, which nearly caused a riot in my freshman dorm and led to the entire campus going into depression for weeks on end.

"Take special caution with the black V. Black V 'rocky pits' are openings that could drop you deep into the underworld. If you fall into one, we may never find your body!"

Running 53:15 [3] 6.67 mi (7:59 / mi) +150m 7:28 / mi

G-O-N-Z-A-G-A, Go! Gonzaga! Believe it or not I know someone who attended North Dakota State, now I'll owe him a beer when we don't cover the 17.5. Better than wearing their jersey, I suppose.

Symbolically big NFL/sports news:

Running 1:09:19 [3] 9.15 mi (7:35 / mi) +200m 7:06 / mi

Curse the Girl Scouts and their thin mints. I fell off the wagon yesterday and went on a 36-hour binge.
