Running 1:06:40  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.
