- Last Wednesday, did a 10K on the track as part of the Oregon Road Runners Club "Dual Duel" meet: 41:03, just two seconds off my PR.
- 5K at the Crawfish Crawl in Tualatin on Saturday: A new PR of 19:19.4! Miles were 6:08, 6:17, 6:21 and then :33 for the final tenth or so. Second in the M45-49 age group out of 25, 27/413 overall.
- Great 20-mile workout yesterday. Despite some challenging conditions (nearly 80 with high humidity), I covered 20.07 miles in 2:29, a 7:27 pace. Beginning to think it's actually possible to run Berlin in 7:20/mile or faster. (Of course, just because it's possible doesn't mean it will happen. Still got to do it on Race Day.)
- Right calf fine for the shorter stuff, but begins to tighten up around 12 miles. Trigger Point Performance massage seems to help a ton, so I'll keep doing that and hope that my three-week taper leaves it in good shape for the race.

Chugging along on the training, but throwing in some fun stuff along the way...
